Why does the BM 940 seem overhyped?

    I've carried the Benchmade Griptilian on and off for the past 6 years. Over the last few months I've read a bunch of reviews and seen videos about the great 940 Osborne. Finally I got to handle one a couple days ago. I don't see what the big deal is all about. At about twice what I spent for my Griptilian I was expecting to at least thing, I need to try this knife out. But instead I left wondering why it's got so much hype about it. I guess I did think the blade would be more effective for prying something, but I don't find myself doing much of that with knives unless I absolutely have to.

    Thoughts?

    I’ve got a grip and the 940, and I prefer my 940 for edc, and my grip for hiking, camping, and hunting. I like my 940 because the axis lock on mine feels a little smoother than my grip and the handle feels good in the hand for general utility purposes. It’s all just preference and opinion though. And with that said, I find myself carrying my Spyderco PM2 way more than either of them.

    940/943 is slim in pocket, has aluminium handle instead plastic and very smooth action. I have 943 and like it more than 940. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the input. Decided to get one to try it out. The slim in the pocket is a big deal I'm thinking.
