One of Benchmade's oldest designs, the 940 Folder is a tried-and-true answer to just about any cutting situation. This Benchmade® 940-1 ups the ante on both performance and weight. For steel, the 9430-1 replaces high-end CPM-S30V with ultra-premium CPM-S90V: the very summit of wear-resistance and corrosion-resistance. Plus, to reduce overall weight, the classic aluminum handle is replaced with high-tech carbon fiber.
