The Benchmade 940 Osborne is a 20-year-old design that continues to be a favorite in the EDC community. The svelte design features a sculpted 6061-T6 aluminum handle that fits a variety of hand sizes. It also lends itself to ambidextrous use with its dual-sided thumbstuds, reversible pocket clip, and smooth-operating AXIS Lock. As for the blade, it features the now-iconic reverse tanto shape that’s flat ground from premium CPM-S30V steel. This makes for a durable and useful cutter, slicer, and piercer that will serve you well for years to come.
Beyond the specs, one thing that keeps this knife part of many wishlists or top ten lists is the fidget-friendly action: a well-executed detent provides consistently snappy deployment, while the locking mechanism keeps your fingers out of the way of the smooth-falling, drop-shut blade during retraction. If you’re looking for a slim, yet tough everyday knife with a rich heritage, check out the Benchmade 940 Osborne. Take your pick of the classic from a plain or serrated edge, in a satin finish, or a black coated finish, at the link below.
