Admit it, you've used a folding knife as a pry bar at one time or another. If you haven't, you've at least thought about doing it. Plus, not everyone wants to carry around a dedicated pry bar all the time. Sure, a knife isn't the tool for the job and it's just not safe, but sometimes things just need to get done.

There is another way.

The Kershaw 1945 Barge knife comes with an integral steel pry bar that extends from its handle. Built into the backspacer, it's ready for hard use and all the prying tasks you can throw at it. But it is a knife after all, featuring a more than capable 2.6" 8Cr13MoV blade on its other end. The blade's sheepsfoot shape is excellent for utility, giving you precise cutting control. Also, the frame lock in the handle will ensure that it'll stay open on you even in the worst of scenarios.

So when you get the urge to use a knife unsafely as a pry bar, stop and think about getting the Kershaw Barge instead. What's more, for all the utility you can get out of it, you can find it at an attractive price point at the link below.

Great idea. The original idea of a small pry tool came from Peter Atwood, (member?) & it was/is called a Pry Baby. This knife prevents morons from using their knife tips to pry open paint cans or whatever. Always leads to a knife with a broken tip being sold on eBAY. as "vintage".
