I have one. Feels high quality to me but I don’t have any other experience with OTF style knives.

Blade poppin' in and out is cool I guess but there's much better knives out there for the money.

My cousin has one. They're pretty good knives I think. If I'm not mistaken they do have a lifetime warranty. I think that's what he told me. Pretty sure....

I bought one for me and one for my dad 5 or 6 years ago. Donít use it much but I donít see the value for the money after owning it for a while.

I bought the infidel knock off. For what I paid I feel it is fair. I do like the lifetime warranty option. I met the guys at the Houston Hinting show and they were really nice people. I did not want to drop 400 on the infidel but I should have. I walked through the show and found one at a different booth and it is smooth as silk.

I would buy one for family and friends as a gift.

They are decent. I bought a Microtech Ultratech and couldn't be happier. Felt like much higher quality than the Cobra

Iíve bought 2 as gifts and they are holding up well. Del Rio Feed sells them and they are worth the money. The lesser priced one is heavier, the more expensive ones are very light and both feel good in the hand.

Stopped into their Meridian store last year and bought Breck and I one. They are quality knifes with a cool spring loaded open and close feature.

Not sure of the steel but mine keeps a pretty good edge.

I've had several buddies have them and they all like them. I looked at their site a couple of months ago after I had seen some at a gas station and they have one called the ENFORCER that is similar to the INFIDEL if I'm not mistaken using the same blade steel and all.

My buddy had one laser engraved for me. Name:  A32108BC-5E2D-44AC-811E-52660F21345C.jpeg

Size:  94.7 KBThe larger size is a little heavy, but I havenít had any problems with it. I bought my wife the small size because the spring isnít as heavy and she can operate it easier. You can order different blades from them and change them out if you want.

I looked into it the first time I drove by there and I'm pretty sure I recall finding out they are import knives. Perhaps they design there, definitely their HQ and a Texas company but you don't see them claiming made in USA. I could be wrong and would like to be wrong.

Their site says built to order in Meridian. I'd like to confirm and I'll buy one.

I just ordered an FS-3, medium.
Although the parts are foreign, I'm glad to support a Texas owned company who, at least, assembles the product here.

They have a lifetime warranty, canít beat them for the price of an OTF auto.

Cobratec is made in texas as much as moore maker is, and thats zero. They are knockoffs made in china and marked up 150 percent. They may have gotten better over the last couple years but you can still get the same ebay knife for half the price.

I have the Diablo side button automatic. Looks like a Boker AK74 but with a safety. Carried it for about 5 days and put it back in the box and went back to my Boker. Feels like it is well made, but I can’t stand the safety on it. My Boker does not have a safety and I have never had it open when in my pocket. The Diablo opened up twice on me. Got nervous on carrying it, didn’t want it to cut something that I’m very attached to.
