If you are on the fence about purchasing the 940 or 940-1 I can tell you I prefer the 940-1. I have both knives. The texture of the 940 handle is almost like a fine sandpaper or chalkboard. It feels tacky to the touch and wears on your pants. The carbon fiber handle gives the 940-1 a better balance.
If you prefer a handle with extra grip go with the 940.
