I would lean a bit more towards the Chinese folder if I had to pick. The wide flat ground blade has superior slicing geometry and VG-10 takes an incredible edge. The Chinese Folder is also a bit shorter overall than the 940 which might make it a bit less inconspicuous, but not by much since the blade is so wide. The Chinese is also a much thinner knife and bit lighter, I think. The 940, however, has the Axis Lock which is a so much fun to play with! Also, the the 940 rides much lower in one's pocket. If you really like Benchmade, you might also consider the 690, which is beautiful, or if you really love Spyderco and can wait a few months, the Vesuvius will be out in two months if Spyderco can keep its schedule.
