I went through a phase where I collected $50-$300 knives and I quit rotating which knife I carry a little over a year ago after I bought a Benchmade 940-1. You get a lot of blade for its size, and its barely noticeable in the pocket. The knife is comfortable in the hand, is light, and the steel holds up well. The only thing I would change on it is the clip, and I did as soon as I found out the clip on my Benchmade barrage would fit. Spyderco knifes are ok, however they do seem to feel cheaper in my hand when compared to my benchmade knifes. However for the money spent I prefer them over cold steel and many comparably priced midrage knifes. I am a big fan of many zero tolerance knifes however for some reason I have had bad luck with fit and finish. If you are looking for a slightly beefier knife with grip for days a zt-350 with the spring removed was once my favorite knife and id recommend it even though I had problems with mine. If you were looking for something between a Benchmade 940 and a zt350, id recommend you try out a spyderco manix 2 xl. It is a cheaper knife but I really don't have any complaints about mine, and it is my favorite among my spyderco knifes.
The most important thing is to actually try these knifes out in hand first. I have ordered knifes online that I thought id like but just couldn't due to how the grip felt, weight distribution, or sometimes they were just crap. After spending a few hundred bucks on knifes I didn't like, I started going to different stores and id spend a few minutes with the knife to make sure I would be ok with it. You might really like a knife, read wonderful reviews, and know there is nothing wrong with it only to find out the opening/closing mechanism is too awkward because it doesn't fit your hand/thumbs right.
