The 940-1 is a collaboration between Benchmade and Warren Osborne. To make this knife stand above the rest they gave this knife a CPM-S90V steel blade. The carbon fiber handle makes this knife extremely light, but sturdy. Its size makes this knife a fantastic EDC. This knife is completely manual and can be opened by using the ambidextrous thumb stud. To close the 940-1 you just have to pull back on the Axis lock. This knife comes with a reversible pocket clip for easy carry. Highly regarded as one of the most quintessential EDCs of all time, the 940 and 943 are slim, stylish and after over a decade have performed in just about any situation imaginable.
