A refreshing design whose form exemplifies what custom knife maker Warren Osborne believes important, function and quality. Benchmade Model 943 incorporates the exclusive AXIS locking mechanism for a functional smoothness that compliments well the purity of the design style. A clip point blade shape machined of S30V stainless steel, features dual thumb-stud openers for safe and easy ambidextrous access. The handle design is slender with a slight curvature and recessed contours for grip stability. Machined of aluminum and deep color anodized, the handle scales are black sparked by a color anodized titanium back spacer. The liners provide solid function for the AXIS lock and feature subtle finger treads for added blade control. A stainless steel carry-clip is movable to either handle side, making the Model 943 a 100% totally ambidextrous cutting tool. Contemporary design, innovative function and a higher standard of manufactured quality give the Model 943 everything needed for superior form and function.
