Benchmade 943 with carbon fibre scales. Super slim, super lightweight and super rare. I want one quite bad.

You would probably really like the Benchmade 940-2. It has G-10 grips and is lighter than the carbon fiber. The G-10 grip is really awesome and blade holds a SHARP edge. Seriously sometimes I think it's too sharp. haha

Not to poo poo on anyone's parade, but I think the reverse tanto style is pretty ugly and I prefer the sharp point of the 943. You can get 943 with aluminium scales pretty much everywhere, but they are a bit more heavy than I like, hence the desire for carbon. And carbon is definitely lighter than G10, not sure where you got that from.

Oops that was a typo. I meant g10 is lighter than the aluminum. Carbon fiber sheds a few oz but I just prefer the feel of g10 best. the 943 does have a higher grade steel on the blade but I'm not sure I would notice any improvement at that level.
no prob about blade shape! To each his own. I like the functionality of the blade shape and every time I take it out someone comments on how rad the blade looks. like I said. All preference aside it's way too sharp.

If the 943 came with G10 scales, that would be acceptable too! Or Micarta. Actually, I would prefer micarta over both G10 and carbon for the rough and ruggard look. I actually just put micarta scales on my BM 707BK Sequel and it looks great and feels great!
