BM940P: Model 940 - Osborne Design
Benchmade Knives

Cool. A refreshing design whose form exemplifies what custom knife maker Warren Osborne believes important function and quality. The Model 940 incorporates the exclusive AXIS™ locking mechanism for a functional smoothness that compliments well the purity of the design style. A modified reverse tanto blade shape machined of S30V stainless steel, features dual thumb-stud openers for safe and easy ambidextrous access. The handle design is slender with a slight curvature and recessed contours for grip stability. Machined of aluminum and deep color anodized, the handle scales are a rich green color sparked by a color anodized titanium back spacer. The liners provide solid function for the AXIS™ lock and feature subtle finger treads for added blade control. A stainless steel carry-clip is movable to either handle side, making the Model 940 a 100-percent totally ambidextrous cutting tool. Contemporary design, innovative function and a higher standard of manufactured quality give the new Model 940 everything needed for superior form and function.

Cons: Handle Material
The best
I consider this the greatest EDC knife of all time. There is no more useful blade shape. Benchmade calls it a reverse tanto, but it's more of an elongated sheepsfoot to me. I don't pierce much material with my knives, but the tip of this blade is sturdy enough to do so when needed. The ergonomics are spot on. Even though it's a large knife, it isn't wide so it doesn't take up a lot of room in the pocket. Although it's no fixed blade, it performs many fixed blade tasks admirably due to its design. The S30v isn't hard to sharpen but it does take a bit more time to bring to the edge to a mirror polish. It holds a good working edge for a long time. A few cons. The anodizing on the aluminum scales is horrible. I noticed wear on the scales the first time I carried it all day. The same could be said for the pocket clip although it's paint not anodizing. The blade grind was slightly asymmetrical on the example that I purchased. It took a little work on a coarse diamond stone to make it symmetrical. Although purely asthetic, I don't care for the purple titanium back spacer. I may take the Dremel and the wire wheel attachment to it. Despite the cons, the is the best, most useful and versatile knife that I've ever owned. I've come to really like knives where the blade has a lot of cutting edge.Whenever I think a buying a new folder, gets compared my 940. Needless to say, the new knife that I'm considering stays in the case at the store. This knife, like my 556 Griptilian and my Glock 19, are objects that I pick up now and again, admire, and then think to myself, "wise choice".

Great knife, will travel many miles with me
I love this knife, I love the quality. I have nothing bad to say about it. When I was younger and started getting into knives, I got a Gerber folder from Walmart, it costs 30$. It got me by, I cut myself with it many times. Then I bought another knife this time of higher quality and price, and then another knife but a little more expensive, and another knife until I had bought a knife for 100$. All of those knives (excluding the Gerber) were exceptional. I told myself over the course of those years buying knives that I would never spend almost 200$ on a knife. Well now I have 2 almost 200$ knives, both from Benchmade. I love Benchmade. They make outstanding knives backed by an outstanding warranty and repair service. If you can afford it, purchase this tool. It will become a friend you can rely on everytime. as long as you keep it sharp and take care of it, it will take care of you. This knife is my companion now and I am never without it.
