I got one of the pre-productions as well, and I like it a lot. smaller than other BM axis locks. I have a 730 (BM/Elisihwitz) and these 2, 730 & 940 have the same blade length, but the 730 is wider and longer (both blade and handle) and the handle is a lot bigger (maybe it has to be seeing as how it's made from g10 and not aluminum) While I can take or leave the radical grinds. I do like the fact that the main cutting grind goes high up the blade this is the best blade I've gotten on a Benchmade. While the cutting edge grind was off, I'm not particularly worried as I will re-sharpen it soon enough. It's a lot of knife in a very compact package. A very good blade to handle ratio!
