I'm interested in trying an Axis lock knife, and the one I like best is the 940... I'm willing to give up my favorite fixed blade to give it a shot! I did the scotchbrite finish myself, and it came out superb! The pics speak for themselves. I must say, that I'm as much as a "gadget" guy as a knife guy, and though for me the tradeoff will be equal, I have never owned a knife that is better at being a "do all" knife as this Warden. The SR101 steel is simply perfection...tough as a ball bearing, but will slice paper with ease. Otherwise, I'll let the pictures do the talking! Any questions or comments are appreciated!
