There is really only one golden rule when it comes to knives: Don’t use your knives to pry!

If you pry with a knife, it’s going to break. That is unless you have the latest Badass Knife of the Week — the Kershaw Barge.

The Barge is an interesting little folder from Kershaw because it’s one of the rare knives with a dedicated pry bar at the butt of the knife. But instead of just being a pry bar with a blade or a blade with a pry bar, this knife excels at both tasks.

The modified Wharncliffe blade is 2.6 inches and opens manually with dual thumb studs. The 8Cr13MoV stainless steel with stonewashed finish won’t win any awards, but it gets the job done.

A glass-filled nylon front scale provides enough texturing for a reliable grip while the steel back allows the blade to lock into place with a frame lock.

Built into the rear of the knife is an integral pry bar that works flawlessly and quells the temptation to use the blade to pry. When you carry the Barge, it’s a win-win situation.
