The Osborn 940-1 is a great knife made badly. Anyone who considers them selves a cutlary enthusiast must own a 940 at some point because it is a fantastic design and the 940-1 is made of fantastic materials, CPM-S90V is fantastic and the scales are real, solid carbon fibre, not FRN/G10 with a sliver of carbon fibre on it, but one of the scales on mine is warped and that can’t be fixed, as a result I had to bend the pocket clip to fit it on the left hand scale, the scale screws protrude in to the handle, the blade is not centred and the edge was apparently ground using only a corse stone by a blind monkey with Parkinson’s on a ship in rough seas after 15 cans of Red Bull. Over all the 940-1 is poorly made and extreamly overpriced. It cost me £280 and if it was well made I’d try hard to justify that price but it is not well made, in fact it’s badly made for a budget knife and unforgivably badly made for a premium priced knife. For shame Benchmade, for shame.
