Description
BM943BK: 943BK Osborne Design
Benchmade
 
A refreshing design whose form exemplifies what custom knife maker Warren Osborne believes important, function and quality. Benchmade Model 943 incorporates the exclusive AXIS locking mechanism for a functional smoothness that compliments well the purity of the design style. A clip point 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 green 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 943 a 100% totally ambidextrous cutting tool. Contemporary design, innovative function and a higher standard of manufactured quality give the Model 943 everything needed for superior form and function.

Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Weight, Pocket Clip, Lock Type
Cons: None
EDC Perfection. Utilitarian. Simplistic.
This knife exemplifies the qualities in a good EDC. For me, it always comes down to overall thickness and weight. This knife disappears in the pocket, has a sturdy clip and when deployed it locks up tight. What else is there? Oh. Crucible S30v goes razor sharp and holds an edge w/ 40 degree angle and ultra fine ceramic stone. Only negative comment - offer the blade in a Carbon steel like M4

Best EDC blade out there
The Benchmade 943 is awesome. Lightweight, great steel, good looking and strong. The blue titanium backspacer is a very nice touch and can be seen on both the back of the knife and on the inside when the blade is out. Its not really purposeful to have the inside visible and anodized, but it makes it very pleasing to look at. The handle is matte finished black aluminum, just enough grip, but nothing crazy. The clip is good; won't put a hole in your jeans from being too tight and/or abrasive but you're not gonna lose it. Knife opens very smooth and FAST once broken in, no play either. Beautiful blade shape that I find useful for everyday carry and small tasks. Bottom line: buy it.

I must replace the one I lost
I carried my first one every day for years. For work, for my evenings out, the slim profile and it's size made it comfortable to carry. I lost it once while clearing brush in the woods and spent three days looking for it, until I found it. I do not own any other knife I would expend that kind of effort to find, that knife was the best I've ever owned! The pocket clip lost some of it's tension after almost five years of constant use, and I lost my knife again. I must replace that knife!
