    Omega springs break
    Had a CF 940. Omega springs broke in a month. If you use a knife with omega springs long enough they will break. A different BM I have has been back for repair three times in 18 months. Love the look and feel of BM knives but don’t trust them to perform past a certain point.

    Fantastic!
    The 940 is my 2nd Benchmade. It's the perfect EDC, it does everything well, work, outdoors, indoors...It's the best kitchen knife I think I have. Smooth operation, and has been great for over 2 years using everyday. Only one minor problem is the blade gets loose from time to time, and you have to tighten the tension screw every so often. I fixed that with a little lock tite, and it's not been a problem since.

    Can't get enough of them!
    The 940 was my first Benchmade, what a home run! The knife is so light and yet very strong, the action is superb and Benchmade S30V is both highly wear resistant and tough at the same time. The axis lock is probably the most outstanding feature on this knife among all other knives of this size and weight class, because its incredible strength combined with the smooth action is unsurpassed by anything else. I did a torture test video on this knife with ONLY 1 OMEGA SPRING on my Youtube channel(Doitnow00), be ready to be surprised if you check it out.

    Great EDC
    This is a very nice knife, but there are a few things I feel benchmade could improve on. The blade had a little bit of play after using/playing with it for a day, not enough to cause any issues but enough to notice. The purple spacer has a little gap, again no issue but noticable. Lastly the pocket clip had a decent gap where its supposed to sit flush, that one worried me because if it catches on something it's going to bend/break. I've been using a zt 0450 for years and this is my first benchmade and it's a great knife, but for the money I feel like they could put it together better.

    Excellent EDC
    I have the 940-2001 Limited Edition myself and I am absolutely thrilled. The compact size makes it the perfect EDC. In my opinion, the choice of knife steel is great. You can't go wrong with this knife.

    Amazing knife!
    I’ve had a benchmade 940 for almost 2 years now I have put this thing through some serious abuse I’ve pried with it used it as a flathead cut really tuff lawn fabric and used it to cut sod directly on the ground I’m always amazed how long the edge lasts on this thing, And sharpening is a breeze I don’t use anything fancy just a diamond stone and 2nd super fine stone with a little stroping at the end I can get this knife razor sharp in 20 min or less from super dull. I’m seriously considering buying a second one just in case I lose this one!

    Best knife I've ever had.
    My 940 was gifted to me right before LSU Forestry Camp a little over a year ago. It's ridden in my pocket everyday since. This was my first Benchmade Knife, but won't be my last. Best knife I've ever had. Hope to pass it down someday.

    Rust.
    I received a 940 as a gift last year and was apprehensive to use it as an EDC because of the cost of the knife. I've gotten over that and began using it as an EDC about 2 weeks ago. This week I noticed spots on the blade that turned out to be rust. I examined the knife with a microscope and the amount of rust is troubling. The entire blade has rust spots all over. Even the thumb stud has rust. I perceived Benchmade to be a higher quality knife and this type of issue would never happen with one of their blades. I have been carrying a knife for many years and I've never had an issue like this. I am overall disappointed with this knife and will be looking for a replacement as this knife has let me down.

    My first Benchmade,tried to give fair comparison to my other edc knifes, but this model(940-1)... is just a great all around carry. You get what you pay for!
