The Benchmade 943 features a stylish design by Warren Osborne. The plain clip-point blade is S30-V steel. The 6061-T6 handle is anodized black and fits comfortably in the hand. The 943 also has a blue titanium spacer on the knife's back w/ custom ridges (a very nice touch). The AXIS lock and reversible pocket clip make the knife usable for right and left handers. Simply designed and built for extreme performance, this knife is a true workhorse.
