BM940BK: 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: None
Excellant workmanship -Osborne
Great knife, the osborne 940, gave this four out of five, as price is high for a folder of this type. but I had to have one. It is so light, and will be hard for any knife maker, to beat this one. My experience as a knife collector and every day user, is go and order a second one. As you don't know when this model will cease production, and wont be available ever again!

EDC work and play
I have carried this knife for a few years now. I carry both at work and play. I own a Emerson & Cold steel knife. I allows carry this knife and maybe the cold steel with the fully serrated edge to cut heavy webbing in rescue situation. This knife will do every thing you need short of very heavy duty fast cutting of heavy materials. I have not had to sharpen since it came frome box.

Excellent EDC..First time Benchmade owner
This is my edc knife, so I carry it everywhere with me. Though there are times that I forget that I have it, since it is pretty light. I love quality, the weight, the feel of the rough aluminum exterior and the axis lock is really nice. This is my first Benchmade knife and needless to say there will be many more after it. Only drawback may be the pocket clip since it does stick out slightly, but I have not owned a knife that can be completely concealable anyway.
