A testament to Benchmade's efficient design philosophy and attention to visual quality, the 940 is the real deal. With a back-to-basics approach, Benchmade's designer Warren Osborne has successfully revamped a time-honored design to be more effective, long-lasting, and reliable than ever. Hobbyists and collectors who are interested in the aesthetic sensibility displayed in the 940's design will find many things about this American-made knife to appreciate. And if you are looking for a knife for hobby or practical purposes, it's hard to go wrong with Benchmade's 940.
The 940's 3.4" S30V stainless steel blade is hardened to 58-60 RC to maximize its durability and integrity through repeated uses. S30V stainless steel is designed to stand the test of time by resisting corrosive elements, so you know your 940 is built to last. Its aluminum handle has a stainless steel liner for added durability, and the 940's ambidextrous thumb-pegs allow for easy use whether you're right or left-handed.
At 4.47" folded and 2.9 oz., the 940 is a knife that is as compact and easy to carry with you as it is durable and long-lasting. The 940's adjustable tip-up pocket clip allows for waist-level carry on your left or right side - an ambidextrous design that many are sure to appreciate. Between the 940's versatility and its pleasing visual appearance, it's a difficult knife to pass on if you're in the market for a compact, practical folding knife.
This is an icon for good reason. Great EDC due to lighter-weight, blade size and shape, materials, and Benchmade customer service backing everything. However, I love the Benchmade Axis Lock feature the most. Makes for a great fidget feature, easy, one-handed use, and surprisingly reliable. I gave my prior 940 to my brother several years ago, and I've missed it ever since. I never found a really alternative... without spending more than double.
