The 940 series combines a smooth axis lock folding blade with a modified reverse tanto blade shape for plenty of edge to handle most chores. The 550 Griptilian offers a highly functional design, affordable price and, as Benchmade says, a "genetically" modified blade shape. The 550 is lightweight and also offers the axis lock.
