What Benchmade says:
The 940-1 Osborne knife is highly regarded as one of the most quintessential EDCs of all time. Designed by Warren Osborne, this knife sports a plain reverse tanto blade with a Carbon Fiber handle & S90V steel for top level performance. The manual opening mechanism features AXIS lock technology.
Quinn Knives' take:
Benchmade considers the Warren Osborne designed 940-series, aka "The Osborne", one of their top EDC offerings across Benchmade's storied history. We can't argue with that, as time and time again customers to our store choose the Osborne for their daily carry needs. The 940-1 takes the already great Osborne 940 and moves it into droolworthy status with the addition of a carbon fiber handle, S90V steel, and blue anodized accents. We love it.
