Benchmade Osborne 940-2003 Limited Edition #805 Folding Knife S90V Blade

Benchmade Osborne 940-2003 Limited Edition #805 Folding Knife S90V Blade

SKU: B8965D

Collectible & Limited Edition #805


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. The manual opening mechanism features AXIS® lock technology.

The Benchmade 940-1 sports a top of the line reverse tanto blade, forged from Crucible’s top of the line steel: S90V in all it’s powered metallurgy glory.  Without getting too far into the specifics of the chemistry, S90V is a highly hardenable, ultra tough stainless steel with above average corrosion resistance – but really this steel is all about wear resistance. Benchmade hardens the 3.40 inches of S90V to a Rockwell hardness of 59-61, which is just slightly higher than the S30V of the base model 940. The blade on this limited edition version is finished in black.


Arguably it’s most striking feature, the handle of the 940-1 is a beautiful combination of organic, flowing lines, and beautiful materials. This limited edition model comes with black titanium handles, perfectly matching the blade.
