    good looking knife, as are most benchmades. 350 bucks though, whew. i have 3 bm's as it is, but i doubt i'd fork out 350 for one.

    I hate the name. Infidel is a relative term. To Muslims, people of other religions are infidels, and infidel is not an Arabic word. To Christians, Muslims are infidels, and infidel is a Western term. It's a trendy word, but by now it is a trite cliche'. IIRC, the Arabic translation of infidel is "kafir." Ah, but "kafir" transliterates into English as a negative term, "kaffir," a now outmoded and impolite term applied to native Africans in southern Africa. OK, rant over.

    It does, has been, and continues to be.

    The Infidel is a DA OTF auto. You can find it for a bit less than MSRP, if you shop around, but its still in the same range as Microtechs.

    It is a pretty knife but at that price I rather have a WASR10 and not having to be close to the target

    Okay, but if you can slip a WASR back in your front pocket you're a tad taller than I am...

    it's pretty obvious where the name for this knife came from. the explaination benchmade gave actually made me lose some respect for them.

    For whatever reason, they have removed the press release announcing the 3300 Infidel from their web site.

    BTW, I hope things are going well at Ft. Huachuca. We are praying for your well being.

    Bryan Lee's Blog about the "Benchmade Infidel!" made a big stink about the name and it's probably one of the reasons Benchmade took down their press release. I could kind of see his point until I read in his forum that he is an converted Christian from Arkansas and calls himself an "American" Muslim expatriate living in SE Asia. Now I think I kind of like the name. I'm sorry but I can't get worked up about the name. I like the design and have always enjoyed quality auto knives. I've quit purchasing them due to Oklahoma's laws against carrying them and I don't want to put my CCW in jeopardy for getting caught carrying a automatic knife. I've also got a problem with Benchmade and their going down in quality of steel on many of their knives. I love the Pika style knife and own 3 of the original design but made out ATS-34 steel. I've also got a Mini Skirmish with S30V steel and love it. Who needs an auto when these open just about as quick. But back to the Infidel, It's not a utility knife design. It's made for one thing at the US military's request and who are we fighting now? While the US military version does not have that name on it, it is probably more geared to the ninja mall owner if he can afford it. That is ok with me. I'm tired of people making excuses for making Muslims mad and Muslims not standing up and speaking out against the genocidal frenzy of many of their centers of worship. If the majority of Muslim places of worship would speak against the war against us Infidels or Christians then I might have a problem with the name. As for now, I'm not going to get excited and I'm not going to purchase one either.
