A True Workhorse Knife Built for Extreme Performance
The Benchmade 943 is essentially their 940 model with a clip-point blade and black-anodized aluminum grips. Also designed by noted knife guru Warren Osborne, the 943 is a tough as nails folding knife that has been used for over a decade in almost every situation imaginable. Warren gave the 943 a slender handle that has a slight curvature to enhance balance while the recessed contours ensure superior grip control.
The clip point blade on the Benchmade 943 is made from premium stainless steel capable of keeping an edge for a long time, even after heavy use. Benchmade’s trademark dual thumb studs enable easy, ambidextrous operation of the 943’s blade, and AXIS locking mechanism keep the blade from closing unexpectedly.
