The Warren Osborne designed Benchmade 940 is a popular knife for good reason. It's a comfortable everyday carry knife with its slim design, great ergonomics and lightweight. The 940 has an S30V steel blade with a plain edge and a satin finish. The 6061-T6 aluminum handle is anodized green with 410 stainless steel liners and a purple titanium spacer on the handle back with custom ridges. The AXIS lock and reversible pocket clip make the knife usable for right and left handers.

Love this blade, bought it about 2 years ago, and it did not leave my pocket for about 2 months after that. S30V is my favorite steel for an EDC knife. The liner between the handle is a beautiful purple titanium. Reversible tip up pocket clip makes it easy for left or right handed users to deploy into use. Opening this blade is as smooth as silk. Fantastic knife, would buy again and again. (in fact I am planning on getting a carbon fiber one)
My All Time Favorite Knife
Gordon H.
I used to buy cheap M-Tech knives as a teen because that was all I could afford. But in college and with a few part time jobs I finally bought this knife, the BM 940 was my first Benchmade and is by far still one of my favorites. It is extremely light weight, the green anodized aluminum has a slightly grippy texture that provides positive grip when drawing the knife out of pocket. Although the blade may seem thin and skinny, it has a pretty thick spine. And because the grind is flat and thin cutting through everyday materials (card board, paper, meat, bread, and plastics) very easily. I carry this knife and it's carbon fider counter part when I go to work in my office. The size of this knife is not threatening, instead I consider these Osbourne designs as gentlemens folders. Because it's not a very aggressive knife, I also take this knife to all my travels across the States and overseas (Asia and Europe)
My favorite

I've had mine for about six months now. After using the 551, 556 and even a paramilitary 2, I just can't find putting the 940 second to any of them. My blade did come with a crooked grind on the spine by the tanto, which is common I guess. Everything else regarding fit and finish is great! The action is very smooth, the centering is dead nuts and the axis seems more on point precision wise than on other models (it doesn't really have any wiggle). No blade play either. I really can't see a problem with how it's priced either. Best production knife I own.
Nice design
David O.
The image doesn't do it justice. I bought one many years ago and wore the scales smooth just playing with it. Very smooth action.
It's the design that makes it timeless.
Purple jigged (titanium?) on spacer.
The just keep making them over the years so it must be popular.
Always in rotation

Classic knife. The axis lock is awesome! So much fun, and the blade design is more versatile than looks appear. It is one of my favorite knives, and I don't think it will ever leave my possession.
