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?
