    I saw these as "coming soon" on their website yesterday but they were actually made available today. I've got titanium & copper ones inbound now. I'm pretty excited for these.

    The look nice, but I'm not putting Chinese scales on my 94X knives.

    They have Bugout scales coming too, and at least those are also drilled for a left side clip. Are these for the 940, or the 940 - 2/1? I've seen other custom scales which specify the model, so I'm not sure the scales are interchangeable.

    I understand that but I’ve wanted a Ti 940 for a while. I could try to hunt down one the few Benchmade released and pay $600+ but this will do fine. I’ve got a set of copper Flytanium on my PM2. Those are very well-made. The Ti are Putnums.

    They specify these will fit any 940 because they come with the barrel spacers.

    Love the titanium 940 scales.Damn it,Looks like Flytanium is about to corner the market on pocket knife scales.

    Hopefully they get their quality controls up, as I received a pair of carbon fiber scales with less than stellar finishing.With scratches on the flat sections,un chamfered edges and hanging cloth fibers.

    I hope the copper & titanium 940 scales are nice or I’ll be pretty disappointed. The PM2 copper scales shown above and titanium scales on my 51 & 32 are very nice.

    Copy/paste from the product page for the 940 titanium scales:
    -Grade 5 Titanium
    -Flytanium Design
    -Precision Milled in China
    -Polished Stonewash Finish

    Not all of the items are machined in China though. The Benchmade 32/51 Balisong scales are machined in the U.S.A.
