One of the most quintessential EDCs ever, Benchmade's 940 Osborne Axis Folding Knife features a durable stainless steel blade and a lightweight carbon fiber handle.

The 940 Osborne Axis Folding Knife is designed and built for the individual who appreciates the difference a high-quality cutting tool can make. The 3.4" long CPM-S90V stainless steel reverse tanto blade has a high point in-line with the pivot. A flat grind is applied to this point, leaving it very thick and extraordinarily strong so that it absorbs the impact from piercing. The carbon fiber handle is exceptionally strong for its minimal weight, allowing you to retain a slid grip on the knife while it's in use. The patented, exclusive, 100% ambidextrous AXIS® locking mechanism gets its function from a small, hardened steel bar which rides forward and back in a slot machined into both steel liners. The bar extends to both sides of the knife, spans the liners, and is positioned over the rear of the blade. It engages a ramped, tang portion of the knife blade when it is opened. Two omega style springs, one on each liner, give the locking bar its inertia to engage the knife tang. As a result, the tang is wedged solidly between a sizable stop pin and the AXIS® bar itself. For two decades Benchmade has been committed to designing and manufacturing world-class sports cutlery and edged tools. Benchmade continually strives to manufacture high quality products that will deliver superior performance and provide great value for our customers. Whether you are using the 940 Osborne Axis Folding Knife as a basic cutting tool or a professional grade rescue hook to perform a quick cut in an emergency situation, you can count on your Benchmade tool to get the job done.

  • AXIS® locking mechanism
  • Reverse tanto blade
  • CPM-S90V super premium stainless steel blade (59-61HRC)
  • Carbon fiber handle scales with stainless steel liners and anodized aluminum barrel spacers
  • Reversible tip-up pocket clip

Tanto Blade: Most tantos seen on the American cutlery market are Americanized formats. Like the Japanese tanto, the Americanized tanto has a high point in-line with the pivot. A flat grind is applied to the point, leaving it very thick and extraordinarily strong. This thick area helps absorb the impact from piercing, as the tanto was originally designed for armor piercing. The front edge meets the bottom edge at an obtuse angle rather than curving to meet it as seen in the Japanese tanto. The only negative aspect of the tanto blade shape is the cutting surface area is sacrificed to gain tip strength.

Carbon Fiber Handle: A contemporary, premium composite of thin strands of carbon tightly woven into various weave patterns, then set in resin, which is most commonly clear but can be color tinted. It offers great looks and is exceptionally strong for its minimal weight.

AXIS® Locking Mechanism: A patented Benchmade exclusive, AXIS® has been turning heads and winning fans ever since its introduction. A 100-percent ambidextrous design, AXIS® gets its function from a small, hardened steel bar which rides forward and back in a slot machined into both steel liners. The bar extends to both sides of the knife, spans the liners, and is positioned over the rear of the blade. It engages a ramped, tang portion of the knife blade when it is opened. Two omega style springs, one on each liner, give the locking bar its inertia to engage the knife tang. As a result, the tang is wedged solidly between a sizable stop pin and the AXIS® bar itself. Available in manual, assist or automatic configurations.
