The only way you can hit a target is if it’s sideways!

@BeerHunter was heard to say at the range: "I got it..... you take it."
(And then under his breath, I'm PRETTY sure he said, '@$$hole!')

I was looking for an auto in D2 tool steel just under 4" so the benchmade Infidel is 3.96" hoping for common pocketknife size. I think there is a break in time, mine is a little easier to open after a year.
My Infidel is 2-3 years old now, and has yet to require any sort of lube. I think I may have poured some 93% alcohol on the blade once, and fired then retracted the blade several times for a little cleaning.

I've heard about the Infidel, of course. But, I don't know much about it or how it compares to MicroTech's stuff. The two seem to be the top picks for OTF autos, though.

The Boker AK47 the big one is D2 tool steel ,I would think the 74 would be also. The infidel is the most I ever spent on a pocket knife and I'm keeping it a secret around the house.

So, after 2 days of carrying it clipped in my front pocket, I got tired of scratching the back of my hand on the edge / corner of the frame every time I reached into my pocket for something else (keys).

I switched to my non-dominant side (left) rear pocket. Perfect! Rear pocket is not normally where I'd carry anything other than a wallet (right rear pocket). But, I think it will work here.

File or grinder, smooth the corners you see fit. Make it yours.

What’s scratching your hand? Mine is quite smooth all the way around. Be careful carrying it in your back pocket as every time you sit down it’s gonna want to get pushed up and out….and…..gone.
As said above smooth it up a bit

The corner of the frame. That edge is actually quite sharp. It catches the back of my hand when I put my hand into my pocket (to retrieve something else).

It's not the glass breaker that's scratching. It's that corner from the top of the frame to the "inboard" side of the frame. So, I feel it on the back of my hand, as it goes into the pocket.

Not a chance. As I mentioned before, the clip is VERY tight. Clipping it on and removing it takes VERY deliberate effort. It's clamped on TIGHT.

Famous last words. More than one knife has been lost from back pocket carry. To each his own. I’d file it down so it works in the pocket it’s supposed to go in. Lil bit of black sharpie and nobody will know.

I think you should order another $100 worth to make sure you can do it correctly. 😜
Challenge accepted! LOL! Wait... ONLY $100? That's like not even one tool, eh?

I have the same issues with one of my “cheaper” pocket knives. I have tried the back pocket location but whenever I reach for it, I’m always going to the front right. It’s a training and conditioning thing but I’m not worried about just one blade (got plenty of others).
