CRKT Pilar®

CRKT Pilar® (5311)

Where the tiniest of designs meets the utmost utility.

The CRKT Pilar® is a super-packed EDC folder with a unique minimalist design and an epic story behind its name. It’s low profile, understated when folded away, and carefully designed to punch above its weight when used. Jesper Voxnaes created the CRKT Pilar® in his shop in Denmark.

Anointed after Ernest Hemingway’s beloved boat—the 38-foot long vessel he used for renegade surveillance of German U-boats during WWII in Caribbean waters. The world-famous writer was also a big-game hunter, sailor, and fisherman and would have chosen an everyday knife companion like the Pilar® for his daily labours.

The 2.4” flat grind blade features a satin finish, and the delicate but powerful tip is helpful for more detailed tasks. Deployed from its stainless steel handle with a thumb slot opening mechanism and is secured with a frame lock for safety.

The current Hemingway is the ultimate Renaissance man, and the Pilar® is the knife that will stand up to the challenge.
