The Infidel is a great dual action OTF. If you are in the sandbox, I would leave it wrapped up. But you will love playing with it. It is a quality OTF knife. But it, like all OTF's, does not like sand inside it. You will love it when it comes and your friends will all want to play with it. I am sure you will enjoy your new knife. And you have some great friends that sent it to you.
