Tactical Tuesday presents: Field & Stream Infinity Knife

Post by Murph » Tue Nov 16, 2010 7:45 pm

Hey everyone, I wanted to share a recent purchase of mine, the Field & Stream Infinity Field Knife

Image

You can find this at your local Dick's Sporting Goods store for $14.99 and it comes with the following features:

440 Stainless steel w/ fine ground edge
Gut-hook w/ ridged back
Comfort grip silicone ring
Bottle Opener
Lanyard hole
Molded case w/ fire starter and honing file

Image
You can see the fire starter on the side here, which is the same metal as your typical fire steel. After removing the finish a bit... the backside of the blade strikes sparks just as good as a fire steel does. On the reverse side is the honing file, while I probably wouldn't use it on the blade, it is great for sharpening up the gut-hook. The bottle opener on the rear of the knife works decently, but it wouldn't be my first choice for a bottle opener. The lanyard hole is just big enough to get a piece of paracord through.

Image
As you can see here the case is a little bulky, and the belt loop is the same piece of webbing used for the retention, which is just simple velcro. Sad thing is that the rivets are too small for paracord. My impressions so far is that it is a decent survival / hunting knife for price. In the upcoming weeks I should get a chance to field test it.

Would it be possible to see a picture of it in your hand? I'm a little curious about how it holds.
Rule #1: I'll not be laid a hand upon.
Rule #2: Never leave the house without a knife.
Rule #3: If you have the shot, take the shot.
Rule #4: [Removed by request of moderator].
Rule #5: There's an exception to every rule.

Definitely would like to hear a field report on this one.

I didn't even think about the measurements until you asked about how it looks in the hand.
It's just shy of 5.5 inches total length. And the blade is just about 2 inches. The finger hole is about an inch in diameter.

Couldn't agree more. It is a precision weapon. It will jam at the precise moment you need it the most. :)
