CRKT Pilar Folding Knife

Minimal design with maximum utility

CRKT has released the Pilar everyday carry folding knife. Designed by Jesper Voxnaes of Loegstrup, Denmark, this beautiful, minimal folder is low profile and understated when tucked away, and carefully designed to punch above its weight when in use.

Inspired by the fjords out his back window and the spirit of adventure, Voxnaes created the Pilar™, and named it after Ernest Hemingway’s beloved sailboat—the 38-foot long vessel that he used for renegade surveillance of German U-boats during WWII in Caribbean waters. The world-famous author was also a WWI combat vet, big-game hunter, sailor, and fisherman, and certainly would have selected an everyday knife companion like the Pilar™ for his daily endeavors. This super compact 2.4” blade is stamped out of stainless steel and features a strong satin finish. It’s built to go where you go—which in Voxnaes’ mind is everywhere.

The compact, beautiful handle is created of the same stainless steel aesthetic effect. A first-finger notch is carved out at the head of the handle, both for upping the security of your grip, and making room for the large thumb slot. Swift blade deployment comes standard. Even if you’re wearing thick gloves on high seas. The Pilar manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $39.99. You can find out more here.
