    Hi,
    I want to get a 940. I love the aluminum green, but am concerned about dirt and dust as opposed to the 940-2 that has an open bottom.
    Is this a legit concern or am I just being paranoid?

    Thanks,
    Floyd

    Just paranoid. If stuff gets plugged up in the handle, a 0.5 second shot of compressed air will clean it right out. I've owned Al handle 94X knives for decades and never once thought "man, I'm pretty tired of stuff getting in the handle."

    Thanks Cypress. Glad to hear it. I guess I watch too many review sites.
    I'm gonna get that sucker

    I have a g10 one and aluminum one and have to say open back leads to more dust inside for me.

    Hi Kreole,
    Thanks for the response. I wouldn't have thunk that. But I'll definitely find out next week. It's a done deal for me.

    I have not seen any dust or dirt in mine, but the pop of the purple backspacer really take it to another level.

    Ima newbie - but researching a new higher end EDC knife lead me to the 940 series and to this forum. After lots of research, I pulled the trigger on a 940BK With the green aluminum from BladeHQ about 30 minutes ago. What a beautiful knife. I agonized as there were substantially cheaper options on Fleabay, but I didn't want to risk that trash. Can't wait!
