Chico Barge In Da House

I found the Chico Barge in the ole mail box today along with a couple other packages and some junk mail. It could have been here yesterday I don't know cause I didn't walk to the box.

Impressions: Seems to be built like a tank. It is a little heavier than I thought but that's ok. Looks better in hand than I thought which is good. I own a couple small Kershaw's.
I've never owned a knife with a mirror polished cutting edge.
This knife is without a doubt the sharpest knife in the house and sharpest knife I have ever owned.
I didn't even let my wife hold it cause she can cut herself with a butter knife.

Thanks

Chico

@2sharp2, yes, and it will stay that way. As a newer owner, you get "life sharp." If the blade dulls or chips, you just send it back for repair and a polish. No charge.

I want people to use and enjoy their knives.

You mentioned weight and size. This was done by Kershaw deliberately, in my opinion. One of the biggest demographics for the Barge was wilderness campers and preppers. Some guys bought two, and I think they're going to rotate them--they'll send me the dull one and then use the second sharp one.

'Snow and I laugh about this. I tried to sell her a knife for a year. Now she has two!

I'm also glad we have a few guys here who are also polishers. And the thing you'll find out about cutlery guys is that they help each other, and even trade stones amongst themselves.

When you complete "Operation Barge" I would be open to buying another knife with the Chico expertise. BUT I don't want another Barge. Something automatic or at least "assisted opening" with a 4" blade maybe a 4" fixed blade would interest me and make me slash open the dusty billfold.
"slash open" see what I did there?

I just a new Blue Ridge catalog. They don't sell automatics, but they sell assisted opening models. I'll check it out.
