FMG Online Exclusives: “Kershaw Barge Review” and “First Tactical Medium Duty Light”

( – In the American Handgunner Online Exclusive, “Kershaw Barge Review,” FMG’s Online Editor Mark Kakkuri raves about the 7.3-inch long knife with a thumb stud and short blade. He thinks it “solves an age-old folding knife dilemma — being able to do some serious scraping and prying without damaging the knife’s main blade.” According to Kakkuri, the Kershaw Barge is “robust and durable, the pry end easily handled tasks for which I didn’t want to risk the blade.”

In another FMG Online Exclusive, “First Tactical Medium Duty Light” on, Kakkuri lists the full specs and includes pictures of the mid-sized tactical flashlight that doubles as a striking object. There is certainly a wide variety of flashlights on the market nowadays but for the price, Kakkuri thinks: “it might be difficult to find a better balance of features.”
