The Pilar is a super compact everyday carry folder with a distinctive minimalist design and an epic tale behind its name. It’s low profile and understated when tucked away, and carefully designed to punch above its weight when in use. Jesper Voxnaes designed the Pilar in his Logstrup, Denmark shop, and named it after Ernest Hemingway’s beloved boat, the 38-foot long vessel that he used for renegade surveillance of German U-boats during WWII in Caribbean waters. The 2.4-inch flat grind blade features a satin finish and the fine, but strong tip is useful for more detailed tasks. It’s deployed from its stainless steel handle with a thumb slot opening mechanism and is secured with a frame lock for your safety. The modern Hemingway is the ultimate Renaissance man, and the Pilar is the knife that will stand up to the challenge.
