The Benchmade 940BK features a stylish design by Warren Osborne. The plain edged blade is premium S30V steel and black coated. The 6061-T6 handle is anodized green and fits comfortably in the hand. The 940 also has a purple 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.
