    Lightbulb Kershaw vs Gerber

    Which knife would u choose Kershaw Barrage, sold only at walmart, or the Gerber remix which for some unknown reason is a hot seller. The Kershaw i can get with shipping for under 15 bucks...

    The Kershaw Barrage at $15 is a bargain. I'd recommend that over anything from Gerber in the same price range.

    The Kershaw Barrage 2445ST is a great knife for the money. Nothing wrong with Gerber, but I've been very pleased with the Kershaw. It has a very good edge profile and it holds an edge very well. A great cutter.

    EDIT: Yeah, $15 is great. I paid $35 for mine and I thought that was a good price.

    There's a new youtube review I found that you might want to watch on the Barrage.

    Let us know what you decide.

    I wish the kershaw barrage came in a plain edge version...but the gerber remix...always sells for a lot of money..even on ebay i noticed rarely does the winning bid really get much off retail..so i was curious what makes that gerber so in demand..

    The remix isn't in the same league as the Barrage. The kershaw's 14C28N steel is a lot better than the 440A on the remix. I also think the frame lock on the Barrage is a lot stronger than the slide lock on the remix.

    I don't have a remix so my opinions are just based on reading the specs and looking at the pictures online. I do have the Barrage and it's a great knife, especially for $15. I might have to buy several more at that price.

    As to why it's in demand. If it really is in demand then maybe some people who don't know better just think it looks cool.

    BTW, Gerber does make some great knives. I'm not trying to disparage the company. It's just that between these two particular knives I'd go with the Barrage.

    Congratulations on getting a great deal on a great knife. I'm sure you'll like it.

    The fact that nobody on BF has chimed in singing the praises of the remix should tell you something.

    If I got a free Gerber, I'd flip it on eBay to buy a Kershaw.

    It does... limited. Costs a little more also.
    Sorry if the pics are a little dark. I was having issues with the lighting for the camera that day.
