"This is easily one of my top picks in the Benchmade line. The carbon fiber handles are extremely light yet incredibly strong. The 940-1 is completed with American-made Crucible S90V steel for a truly first class offering by Benchmade."

- Osborne Design - Great for EDC
- CPM S90V Steel Blade
- Carbon Fiber Handle for strength

An omnipotent design, the Benchmade 940-1 carbon fiber folding knife by master designer Warren Osborne is a best-in-class EDC knife. The 940-1, a descendant of the 940 that was introduced in 2000, has had some changes to make the 940-1 lighter while still maintaining it's durability and functionality.

One change made includes the use of American-made CPM-S90V super premium stainless steel for the blade which has a hardness rating of 59-61HRC. This steel will will offer you excellent edge retention and corrosion resistance. Another difference in this knife you will see is the use of the dual carbon fiber handles and the addition of blue anodized aluminum barrel spacers. Both of these materials make this an extremely strong yet lightweight knife.

Overall this knife is 7.87" long and only weighs 2.44 ounces. The reverse tanto style blade is stonewashed and has a flat grind. The 940-1 has a blade that is 3.40" long and 0.12" thick. It has plenty of blade to utilize and the weight makes it easy to maneuver.

The contouring of the carbon fiber grips offer impressive grip handling and when the knife is open you can see straight through the handles. Overall the handle is 4.47" long and 0.41" thick. When opened, the blade is held in place with the AXIS® lock mechanism.

The 940-1, which is a favorite among many EDC users, has dual thumb studs for easy manual opening with either hand and a tip up ambidextrous pocket clip.

Made in the USA, the Benchmade 940-1 Carbon Fiber Folding Knife is an impressive every day carry knife that can handle multiple tasks and last. It's lightweight, easy to carry and feels good in your hand during use.

5  Why would a gun guy, spend more than $50 on a pocket knife?, Benchmade 940-1 Carbon Fiber Folding Knife
Posted By:

I was always a gun guy never a knife guy. Used a Kershaw Leek for hunting specifically field dressing because that's what a buddy of mine sent to buy and the Kershaw chive for EDC.. I did not know that there was such a thing as a $100 knife at the time and Ashley did more research I kept upset with myself and and early 2015 I saw a picture of zero tolerance is ZT0450 which I thought was absolutely beautiful design but it wasn't going to be available until June and I couldn't wait five months so I ended up getting a Benchmade Valet, then exchanging that in buying the 940 -1; A month later perhaps in March 2015 the CT came out and I of course I bought it and of course the following year they came out with carbon fiber scales and I had said as well so now I understand the obsession.. The way you can tell if you really like something is by what you instinctively reach for and I always reach for that 940 and wall was expensive quality is remembered long after cost is forgotten

Great knife. Very light and easy to handle. When I say sharp I mean sharp. I have already ordered 5 more knives. 2 are here and the other 3 have already shipped. All different styles but 4 are Benchmade and 1 is a Zero Tolerence. Thank You Knife Art. Gotta let the bank account build up a little more and you will be hearing from me again.

5  Fantastic EDC, Benchmade 940-1 Carbon Fiber Folding Knife
Posted By: - verified customer

Benchmade took the already excellent 940 and made it even better. Weight reduction from a carbon fiber frame, an upgraded blade steel from S30V to S90V, all the while the 940-1 retains the qualities that made the 940 a great knife. The blade deployment is butter smooth - almost as good as my William Henrys! The AXIS lock-up is solid, no blade play and perfect centering. With its light weight, this is a knife that disappears once you slip it into your pocket. I've found what is for me, the perfect EDC!

5  Best Knife Ever, Benchmade 940-1 Carbon Fiber Folding Knife
Posted By: - verified customer

Benchmade has made a fantastic knife. This knife is lightweight and feels great in your hand. Easy to open and fits great clipped in your pocket. Blade holds a nice edge as well. I will likely be purchasing a second 940-1 in the near future.

5  One of the better Benchmades, Benchmade 940-1 Carbon Fiber Folding Knife
Posted By: - verified customer
4 people found this review helpful

I think the combination of attributes on this knife makes it one of the best Benchmades ever produced. Ultra light with the carbon fiber scales, and slender for inconspicuous carry. The blade design fulfills a wide variety of utility needs while maintaining good strength. The steel is also a fine match. From my own blade testing S90V maintains the keen edge properties of S30V, only it lasts much longer. It isn't as chip and shock resistant as S30V, but much more durable than M390 which chips badly. However, for a knife that is a light cutter, S90V is a perfect match for this knife design. I love this knife, but just be aware that S90V is pretty tough to sharpen on anything other than diamond stones.
