Customer Reviews

Perfect EDC
Daniel D. on Nov 17, 2021

I like a small out of the way knife for my EDC needs and this 945 hit a home run! I installed a small deep carry clip and some Jade G10 scales and it’s perfect.

First nice knife
Austin L. on Dec 5, 2021

This was the first nice knife that I purchased after carrying cheaper knives for most or my life. It did a great job and It still gets into my pocket rotation even thought I have well over $5,000 worth of nice knives.

This little guy is just right for me!
Tom S. on May 8, 2021

EXCEPTIONAL !!! I prefer knives in the 7 inch range. This little brother to the outstanding Osborne 940 series is getting lots of pocket time. While I'm late to the party, there's such a pleasing feel to the aluminum handled 940 series, much better than my G10 or carbon fiber ones. The standoffs are a welcome improvement to the larger 940's full length back spacer and the purple color is a very nice contrast against the green handles. The AXIS lock is the most fidgety lock system out there, something not available on the new automatic 9400. I really like the Benchmade Mini iterations. It might be encroaching on the top spot of my extensive collection displacing knives many times the price. I’m glad I bought this one and highly recommend it.

945 Mini Osborne First Production
Randy M. on May 10, 2021

It just came in the mail about an hour ago. All I can say is Awesome! Everything about this 945 Mini is perfect. The feel of the aluminum is grippy. The blade alignment is centered and crazy sharp. I love the size. It was not a surprise to me since I already have the 945BK-1. I also have the 940-1 and 940-2 for when I need a bigger knife. The 945 is a casual carry knife for me. If I am on one of my projects around the house or camping, I will grab one of my larger 940s. Not that the 945 isn't capable. They are well built, strong and sharp knives. Great for casual EDC.

First 100$+ knife buy
Dylan W. on Jun 6, 2022

This knife is worth every penny. I use it everyday and it never lets me down. The size is perfect. I’m 6’2 with rather large hands and it just feels right. Sharp right out of the box, been using it everyday for 6+ months, still razor sharp. It is a knife you can count on and trust to carry daily. Bladehq did a excellent job and had it sent it to me quick, I got it the same week I ordered it.

A Lifetime Knife
Mike J. on Aug 31, 2021

I knew after 5 minutes that this knife would be a perfect EDC for me for the rest of my life

Great knife
Peter P. on Feb 22, 2022

So I’ve had the 940 in the black G-10 and it was my favorite knife for years. Very light, easy to carry, built very solid, and always gets compliments or people asking to check it out. That being said a few years later I saw how much I loved that knife and wanted to get the one in green aluminum handles. (To me it is just the staple of what Benchmade is outside of the greptilian) Benchmade’s Quality Control during the pandemic/Covid seemed to crash. I’ve been buying Benchmade knives for about 14 years now and never had an issue. When I received this item I noticed one of the pivot washers was missing. The blade was off center and moved side to side. I called Benchmade to see what they could do they asked me to ship it back and it would take 2-3 weeks for them to repair it because they don’t ship out internal parts. That’s fair but at the same time I literally purchased a brand new knife and it was an epic fail on them. Thankfully, I called Blade HQ which whom I’ve been ordering knives for years and I explained to them what happened they had me ship the knife back to them, refund my money and I simply repurchased this knife. This would be a 5 star if it was Blade HQs customer service and not Benchmade’s Quality control. All that being said, it’s a great knife and I am happy with the purchase. I do enjoy my G-10 version a little bit better than this aluminum version. Plus it was a few bucks cheaper.

Great knife
Robert O. on Oct 19, 2021

Great little knife I like how compact it is. Fit and finish is What I expected. The blade did not come very sharp though. A couple minutes on a diamond sharpener took care of that.

Overpriced garbage
Joshua F. on Sep 7, 2021

First of all, this knife should be like 50 dollars cheaper than it is. Second of all, I tried to replace the clip cause I don't like the aesthetic, and the center screw stripped. No resistance, nothing. Just gone. I still haven't been able to get it out. A shame. I really like everything else about the knife.

Don’t buy
marcus m. on Sep 3, 2021

The purple backspacer are awful!!! Don’t buy!
