The CRKT 5311 Pilar Thumb Slot Opening Frame Lock Folding Knife is understated when concealed and it has been deliberately designed to strike masterfully when in use. So, in this knife, it is where the minimalist model gets together with utility.
The Pilar is a super compact. And, it has quite the reputation.
Therefore, the story goes that “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 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.”
The 2.4” 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 CRKT 5311 Pilar Thumb Slot Opening Frame Lock Folding Knife will stand up to any situation.
