The model 940 from Benchmade could very well be the perfect EDC knife. I honestly can’t find a single negative thing to say about it. The materials, craftsmanship, ergonomics, and attention to detail are all absolutely superior. Take all this and multiply it ten-fold for 2012, introducing the Gold Class model 940-121 by Benchmade. This knife, already near perfect, gets a true overhaul sparing no expense by using the best premium materials available on the market. The CPM-M4 super steel blade is finished in a clear protective coat called Cerakote and paired with the green titanium handle and carbon fiber bolsters, it creates a very pleasing look. If you’ve ever handled any of the 940-943 series of knives, you’ll know I saved the best part of it for last; the size. For a blade just a hair under 3.5″ and weighing in at only 3.2 oz., this knife absolutely disappears in your pocket. When closed, the knife is only 1-1/8″ wide at it’s largest point so you can slip your hand, phone, keys, or another knife into your pocket without obstruction. Gold Class knives are truly custom level production blades, see for yourself at www.knifecenter.com.
