This is a fantastic knife! I'm surprised that it took me this long to become aware of this great tool. I collect knives and always have at least one with me. I have many different brands, ranging from high end, to lower end. When I took this knife out of the box and played with it for a bit, I honestly almost made it my carry knife for the evening (I've been carrying a Strider SnG, so when the thought of switching it out for the night for another knife comes to mind...you know this knife impressed me). The green handle is beautiful, especially with the blue/purple spacer. The blade is nicely finished and is ultra-sharp. Deployment is a cinch using the thumb studs or using the axis-lock. Lock-up is tight, with no blade play. Centering is spot-on. Benchmade really did a wonderful job with this fantastic tool.
Folding knife perfection.

There is nothing I don't like about this knife. The action becomes more smooth with use. The blade shape and design is well thought out yet unique, and the handle shape is comfortable and strong with great holds.

If you work hard and need a knife to keep up with you, this will quickly become your new best friend.

THIS is a knife I would trust to go anywhere. Nothing would stop this knife.

If you are contemplating buying this knife, and you don't really know if it's worth it.. Trust me, just get the dang knife. This knife is beyond superb. Beautiful blade and material, awesome axis system, and the green scales with the pink spacer is bodacious. You won't regret the purchase when you hold it in your hand. Extremely sharp out of the box and it's a benchmade, so what else do you want? I love every aspect of this knife. Also, if you're not digging the clip, ask benchmade for a deep carry clip and they'll send you one free.
Sweet!

Took me a while to get used to the size because of my extra large hands and I've been in construction for 38 years. However , this is an amazing knife! Mechanically perfect, sharp as all get out, I love this thing! Get one! And as usual the folks at Bladehq were polite and helpful. Refreshing to deal with a great company! Now to save up for the carbon fiber! Haha!
WOW!!

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)

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

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.
