Amazing tool and work of art
I needed a blade to replace my lost NRA special. I use it daily as a general cutting tool, opening feed bags, boxes and cutting cord. I’ve never owned a high quality knife so I decided to take the plunge. After researching for a couple days I settled on Benchmade. I first opted for an assisted model with 154 steel. I got a serrated blade and right away I realized it was not going to work for me. Also, I didn’t like the feel in my hand. The blade did deploy nicely but I quickly decided I wanted something more. Back to the browser and after another few days I made the decision to purchase the 940 with s90v steel and carbon fiber body. Since it arrived yesterday, I have had trouble putting it down. After removing the clip and slightly lessening the screw that provides the tension on the blade/body junction, I now have a tool that feel amazing in my hand, opens with the depression of the lock button and the flick of the wrist, and most importantly slices like true hot steel through butter. The balance, light weight, and amazing cutting performance will hopefully only be enhanced by the edge retention and the reduced need to sharpen. If it meets this final expectation, which time will tell, as my usage is real, I will be more than happy to have spent what I did on this blade. It is truly a work of functional art showcasing a high quality American made with pride.

BM 940-1 is the knife of knives.
Too all the fisherman,hunters, electricians or any men out there that does man stuff I'll start this off by saying I'm a true knife lover. I not only collect knives I use everyone I buy. I'm an industrial Electrician and I enjoy fishing and camping. I own Benchmade, Spyderho, Case, Oldtimer(USA only), Hen &Rooster, Gerber, just to name some. I actually have a BM 940 that I love and used too carry everyday until I bought the 940-1 after seeing it and feeling how different it felt in the hand. Not only is it a beautiful work of art but it is so light and balanced perfectly. The S90V is the absolutely best blade steel I've ever used or seen. I do sharpen it using a paper wheel and recommend getting a paper wheel or something comparable if you purchase one since the steel is too hard to sharpen on a regular stone. I can get it sharp enough to shave with, without hardly any pressure within 5 minutes and it will keep that edge day in and out for 3-4 weeks of hard use at work stripping 600mcm copper wire or for just slicing threw cardboard like butter. It's so light in my pocket I have too double check that it's in my pocket. Also of course I have to say the axis lock is the best lock out there on a knife and makes for easy deployment of the blade. As soon as my 940-1 comes out of my pocket the blade is flicked open one handed quick and easy. I've had this knife now for over a year with no issues at all. I'm not one too usually write reviews but this knife deserves it. I promise if you get this knife you will see it has no competition and it will live up too all expectations and it's worth every penny. I could say more but I think I've made my point so best regards and good luck looking for another knife that would come close to this one. It's still fun buying new knives but I know going into it that it can't compare all around too the one in my pocket. (Also benchmade Blue Lube works great for lubricant on all knives).
