Benchmade is one of America’s best-known knife manufacturers, renowned the world over for their high-performance everyday carry knives. With the Infidel, Benchmade has brought the EDC and the tactical out-the-front (OTF) market together in an awesome way.
If you are looking for an EDC knife to peel an apple, or cut a cardboard box, the Infidel will do the trick – but also so much more. This knife is made to impress, meaning the long, slim, razor sharp blade fires with authority. When the blade is released, it shoots out in the blink of an eye, accompanied by a satisfying pop.
The double action mechanism allows for quick release and automatic retraction of the blade. This enables the user to employ the blade when needed using only one hand and close it just as easily. With the length of a full-size fixed blade, the Infidel has the extra convenience of a folding knife format. It's as portable as possible while still feeling and looking absolutely solid.
The handle is comfortably curvy and has enough thickness to fit snuggly in the owner’s hand. The grip is aluminum and matte finished, fitted to allow for nonslip grip. The balance between the blade and the handle is superb. The knife handles like a dream and can be used ambidextrously. As with all Benchmade knives, it comes with a removable clip and is carry friendly.
The Infidel blade is both beautiful and intimidating. The spearpoint is perfect for tactical and EDC crossover use. Made from D2 steel, the blade is tough, resilient, and can keep an edge for a very long time. The internal mechanism deploys and retracts the blade with ease. Once deployed, the blade stays fixed thanks to a three-point retention system that fixes it in place. You can use it with total confidence.
Should you encounter any damage or eventual wear on your Infidel, Benchmade’s friendly team will help take care of it under their lifetime warranty. As long as the knife is not abused or mistreated, they can make it right and get it back to you in brand new condition!
Since its release, the Infidel has become a mainstay in the world of OTF knives. The distinctive design, reliable mechanism, and high-end materials make it top choice for anyone in the tactical EDC market.
