From the Manufacturer:

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, we now have 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 modified Wharncliffe 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 textured glass-filled nylon front scale for grip and a stonewashed steel back with sturdy frame lock. The pocketclip is designed for tip-down carry and is left/right reversible.

The 2-1/2" modified wharncliffe blade is made from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel and has hardness of 58-60 Rc. The closed length is 4-3/4". Weighs 5.2 oz. Made in China. Suggested Retail $34.99.

Kershaw Knives

Kershaw Knives was founded in 1974 in Portland, Oregon when knife salesman Pete Kershaw started a cutlery company that would make knives from his designs. Japanese based KAI Cutlery manufactured those designs. In 1978, KAI Cutlery purchased Kershaw Knives and the company, renamed KAI USA Ltd., continues today with three product lines; including the original Kershaw Knives, Zero Tolerance Knives, and Shun Cutlery which primarily markets kitchen cutlery.

Over the years, Kershaw Knives has worked with several custom knifemakers. Cutlery Hall of Famer Ken Onion, a custom knife maker and inventor of the “SpeedSafe” assisted opening mechanism, is the premier knife designer for Kershaw Knives. Kershaw has also collaborated with custom knifemakers Grant and Gavin Hawk, Frank Centofante, and Ernest Emerson. Kershaw has released models that were developed in collaboration with National Geographic, Jeep, Orange County Choppers, the American Professional Rodeo Association, and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.

Kershaw manufactures excellent knives and has built a very strong customer fan base due to their innovative designs and their quality control.
