    Is it just me Jimmy the greatest thing to ever happen to this board?

    Nice 940!

    I don't see it on the Going Gear website yet but I assume the street price would be $238.00 (assuming the MSRP is $280 - small font).

    For comparison, the KnifeWorks exclusive 940-1501 also with 20CV steel and G-10 but no C-Tek inlay is $199.95.

    Gorgeous looking knife.

    I'm going to sound like a broken record, but I would love to see a 531 like this...

    While I don't care for the look of this one, I do appreciate that we have so many 940 options these days. If they'd only do the original scales in different colors like they've done in the past.

    So nice, so much too expensive... :( not to mention hard to get for me as a European.

    Love it, only thing that would make it better is if it was a 943.;)

    Oh wow, I really like that one! I haven't had a 940 in ages, might have to acquire this one.

    AMEN!!! Think we'll be waiting a loooooooooong time!!!
    But I'll probably NEED this one!
    $230 doesn't sound too outlandish. When compared to the price of the Cabelas excl, this one isn't too painful at all.
    Guess I can justify almost anything!!!

    Man, I'm so excited I can finally talk about this knife. It's been in the works for a while.

    We're at NRA this weekend, but we're going to try to get it up on the site tomorrow. The first shipment was only a handful of units. We'll have a lot more soon.

    Personally I think the 940 is a really unattractive design in general, and this doesn't change that, but the handle/inset/thumb stud combo is really nice. Would look great on... well, any other Benchmade.

    I like this knife. 940-1 Carbon fiber and the Cabelas version. I just ordered this one.

    Price is $240. It's 0.5oz lighter than the 940/1501. Think I'll grab a 1501 instead, personally prefer the look but need to sleep on it a few days lol

    The contouring on this one is very nice though!!
