I've got both, and they are pretty different designs! I like both, but carry and use them for different purposes.
The 940 will certainly ride easier, lighter and be much smaller in the pocket. If you are going to carry a lot and use little, then the 940 would certainly seem the better choice to me. If you work in an office environment the 940 would likely raise alot less eyebrows than the big Mil... BTW: You may also want to check out the 943, I actually prefer its blade shape to the reverse tanto of the 940.
The Mil would be a great knife if you use it a lot, or are needing a more heavy duty knife. But I gotta admit I don't carry it to "the office" that much, its just a bit large, and scares the peasants.... Also, BTW, a better Benchmade for direct comparison to the Spydie Military might be the BM 710 or the 740 Dejavoo? Both of those are great knives as well, and have close to 4 inch blades like the Mil.
