The Benchmade 943 features a stylish design by Warren Osborne. The plain clip-point blade is S30-V steel. The 6061-T6 handle is anodized black and fits comfortably in the hand. The 943 also has a blue titanium spacer on the knife's back w/ custom ridges (a very nice touch). The AXIS lock and reversible pocket clip make the knife usable for right and left handers.
