Benchmade Unveils A More EDC-Friendly 2.92” Blade Version Of Its Osborne Knife

Benchmade has long been one of the most respected players in the EDC knife space, with a more than forty-year history of producing some of the world’s finest premium fixed blades and folders. Among the Oregon City outfit’s many esteemed models is the Osborne, which is now celebrating its 20th anniversary since its release. To mark the occasion, Benchmade has taken this folder favorite and tweaked its sizing to deliver a more compact and pocketable version of the knife, appropriately dubbed the “Osborne Mini.”

Retaining the same design and silhouette as the full-sized 940 Osborne, the new Mini variant now sports a blacked-out 2.92” (0.104” thick) CPM-S30V steel reverse Tanto blade mated to a 3.84” set of G-10 scales. The thinner 0.41” handles also come paired with a mini-split arrow, (reversible) tip-up pocket clip and a blue G-10 base layer. Measuring 6.76” when open, this more EDC friendly version of the knife weighs in at 2.19oz—some 1.23oz lighter than the full-size Osborne. In celebration of the Osborne’s 20th anniversary, Benchmade is also releasing a top-shelf automatic version of the 940 with titanium scales, Blue Sapphire PVD-coated hardware, and a DLC-coated S90V blade. Slated for a release in the second half of November, the Benchmade Mini Osborne is priced at $205.
