    This time of year people hear back from the schools that they're attending in the fall. I was fortunate that I was admitted for UC Davis. So dissonance occurred because I recently saw the Infidel at a local shop and I drooled all over it. I decided to buy it because community college has been a real pain sometimes and I'd figure it has personal value to me now that I have a good school to go to in the near future. In short, does anyone edc a nice otf or any otf for that matter where it's legal to carry or just own some for collection. Pics or it didn't happen.

    I've got an infidel aswell. It's not legal to carry where I am, even with a ccw. It's defanitly a nice piece, but I'm not extremely impressed with the amount of play the blade has. Otf knives will have blade play, but mine seems a bit excessive. Especially for a $400+ knife. Overall a nice benchmade knife. But not practical for me.

    Love love love that Microtech! I used to want an Infidel in the worst way until I used my friends to cut some rope and almost found myself pushing down on the blade to get some more leverage......Yeah double edged blades are not for me!

    Besides illustrating what could be a hard lesson learned with a double edge... surely makes the case for a SE or even better a hawksbill SE blade!

    Just sayin'

    I have these. Both are legal to carry in Oklahoma.

    I like the Mini Infidel. I'd pick one up if I found it at a good price. No double edge though, don't need that much blade on my knife.

    I have a Kershaw Launch 1. Not an otf, but a great auto nonetheless.

    While not as pricy as your infidel I carry my H&K Tumult pretty regularly. It has done everything I have needed it to do within reason.

    I followed Oklahoma law like a hawk when they were legalizing automatic knife carry. And this is why......[​IMG]
