I didn’t expect to dig the Osborne 940 as much as I do and now understand why so many people go bananas over it. First off, the 940 is gorgeous. The fit and finish radiate quality from the moment you take it in hand. The blade is perhaps the sharpest out of box of any knife I've ever owned. I shaved a little with it, just to see if I could. I wouldn’t recommend this as a general practice, but damn, that’s a sharp knife. The Axis lock allows for lightning-fast deployment and locks up rock-solid. Again, now I understand why so many people dig the Axis lock. Given the speed and reliability of deployment, I would absolutely feel comfortably defending myself with the 940. Thus so far, I’ve been able to avoid danger and haven’t had to put the 940 to use in this capacity. In the meantime, it’s been great for opening boxes, cutting tape and a thousand other day to day cutting tasks that seem to come up.

My one gripe is the black painted coating on the clip. I'd love to have a non-coated "BENCHMADE USA" clip on this thing. But I’m nit-picking.

I categorically recommend this legendary knife.

I bought this knife when I graduated from Ranger School in 2002. It has been my everyday knife since then and done me well everywhere I have been since that day.

I liked this model so much I bought 2 the green scaled with black tonto blade and the black scaled satin blade, both are light and have solid lock ups, deploy easy and make for great EDC blades

I have the 940 black edition. Bought the knife on amazon and have no regrets. I am a pipe-fitter and use this knife for everything on the job. From cutting of insulation to scraping off gaskets from flanges, this knife has taken the best I can throw at it. Just sent it back to Benchmade after two years just for a sharpening, to my surprise they replaced the springs and axis lock. Great job Benchmade, you have a customer for life.

I've owned and carried this model for about ten years now. It held up great to anything I could dish out. Just recently sent it back to Benchmade because I had sharpened it so much over the years that the blade didn't really look like it did when it was new. Benchmade replaced the blade, upgraded now to S30 steel, and custom laser marked it for less than the cost of a Chinese knife from Walmart! They also tuned up the rest of the knife like brand new. It carries so well in my pocket that I forget it is there. I can't say enough good things about this knife. I own 12 other Benchmade knives, but this model is my favorite.

The 940 in any configuration is the quintessential every day carry blade. Lightning fast when opening and closing. It has handled everything I can throw at it with ease. The first thing I did upon losing my first 940 was order another directly from Benchmade.I will always have a 940 on my side.

I purchased this knife 4 years ago and it goes everywhere I go. The clip is tight and the knife has never come loose, even when wearing nylon material hiking pants, which tend to be slippery. The Axis mechanism is awesome and actually almost as quick as my auto knife. I tend to be tough on knives because I use them. One might be inclined to baby this blade because of the price but this is one bad ass tough knife. No wiggle after four years! If you had to pick one knife for everyday carry. this is the one, in my humble opinion. These folks know how to build a knife!

Got to say, this is one of my favorite EDCs, the lock up from blade to Handel is super tight, it's a sleek design and perfect for EDC, deff recommend this blade.
