Benchmade 940-1 Osborne Carbon Fiber Satin S90V AXIS Lock Folder
Highly regarded as one of the most quintessential EDCs of all time, the Warren Osborne designed Benchamde 940 is slim and stylish offering time tested performance in nearly any situation you can image after over a decade of use in the field. Lightweight yet robust, the 940 starts with a solid foundation in Benchmade's high strength, ambidextrous AXIS Lock housed in inset, partial stainless steel liners. Slim, contoured handle scales are made from durable, modern composites keeping the 940 lightweight while offering superb comfort in use and carry. Pair that with the high performance stainless steel blade and you have a timeless everyday carry classic. The 940-1 is a premium upgrade and comes with Carbon Fiber handles and a tumbled satin, CPM-S90V Reverse Tanto blade.
Brand new, direct from Benchmade Knives, USA.
Blade: A utilitarian reverse Tanto blade profile was built to tackle your daily cutting tasks. Smooth, ambidextrous dual thumb stud operation offers fast, one handed access while the tumbled satin finished CPM-S90V blade delivers a good balance of durability and slicing performance thanks to the high saber grind and top swedge. The reverse Tanto point enhances durability while retaining solid piercing performance.
Handle: 3D milled Carbon Fiber handle scales are contoured for comfort and provide an ultra lightweight yet durable handle option. Blue anodized barrel spacers form an easy to maintain, open back construction while jimping on the stainless lines provide traction for a secure grip despite the lack of aggressive milling. A neutral handle design means comfort in multiple grips for added versatility while the ambidextrous AXIS lock is smooth and reliable with rock solid lockup.
Carries via a reversible, tip-up stainless steel pocket clip.
CPM-S90V: A unique tool steel made using the Crucible Particle Metallurgy process, CPM S90V offers substantial improvements in edge retention over 440C and D2, and other high chromium steels, with corrosion resistance equal to or better than 440C. S90V is an excellent choice where wear and corrosion resistance are key.
