Kershaw Knives
Go Ahead and Pry

You know you do it. And you know you shouldn’t. You should never use the blade of your knife—especially the blade of your folding knife—as a prybar.

However, if you’re pry-prone anyway, Kershaw now has the right knife for you. The Barge features an integral prybar that extends from the backspacer of the knife. Now there’s no need to even think about wrenching on something with your blade. Finally, you’ve got the right tool for the job—an actual prybar built into the back of the knife.

That said, the Barge’s other end is pretty handy, too. The shorter blade is a Sheepsfoot with a fairly straight edge, which is a great shape for a general utility knife. That edge is extra handy for when you might need to bear down on something you’re cutting. The stonewashed finish hides scratches easily.

The handle has a faux G-10 textured front scale for grip and a stonewashed steel back with sturdy frame lock. The pocket clip is designed for tip-down carry and is left/right reversible.

Next time you need to pry, you know what to do. Grab the Barge.
  • Multi-function - Has multiple blades or tools, enabling it to perform multiple functions.
  • Manual - There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
  • Frame Lock - A portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. This is a safety feature of the knife.
  • Reversible - Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.

Zytel Handles
Zytel Handles A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.
Pocket Clip
Pocket Clip Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
8CR13 Stainless Steel
8CR13 Stainless Steel Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.
Frame Lock
Frame Lock Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.

Tote that Barge
Lift that Bale. Get your credit card, cuz the barge's on sale. It has been a looong time since a knife under $100 got 5 stars from me. The biggest problem so far is that the screws for the prybar got very loose. When I get home, they will be Loctited. 1-2 minutes on a fine DMT done had this shaving sharp. You can spend more than this costs on a Starbutt's coffee and a fast food lunch. Within a day, they have been flushed down the toilet. This knife has a god clip and should easily remain with you until you loan it to that seedy, unscrupulous character in the next office/bay/work crew/ et al. The prybar is handier than Velcro. Even tho I don't get a kick back, I urge you to get at least one.

A great working knife
If you are not a tool using person, do not get this knife. If you are a worker then try this knife. You may not want anything else.The clip holds it tightly to the pocket. Not so good for fast tactical draws; however, I haven't lost this knife yet.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, Weight, Blade Material
Cons: None
Tough knife
Very tough knife with a 8cr13mov blade which tends to hold a good edge while still easy to sharpen. Pry bar comes in handy plus has a flat head screw driver built into the pry end. Very solid knife the only thing I wish it had was a finger choil for a little better grip but still a very good knife worth buying!
