BM943P: 943 Osborne Design
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: Ease of Opening, Blade Material, Handle Feel, Weight, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Perfect EDC
There is nothing about this knife that could be improved in terms of an EDC. The blade length, thickness and shape are perfect for your everyday chores. I have two other Benchmade folders and this is by far the best. The knife is slim and light weight, yet very strong. The locking mechanism is rigid and the hinge is smooth.

Benchmade 943 Osborne Folding Knife 3.4" S30V Satin Plain Blade, Black
This is the second Benchmade Osborne series knife I have purchased. I am very impressed with the design/quality of the knife. However, I am disappointed that a blade "in the white" is no longer available from Benchmade. The satin finish on the blade will eventually become very ugly over time with use. I think the marketing people at Benchmade need a better understanding of who their customers are. Anyone willing to spend over $100 for a knife is inherently particular about details like the above mentioned. I can buy a cool looking knife for $15.
