About the CRKT Columbia River 5315G Jesper Voxnaes Pilar Large Flipper Knife 2.669″ Satin Plain Blade, Black G10 and Stainless Steel Handles
Where minimal design meets maximum utility. The Pilar is a minimalist’s everyday carry folder with clean design and an epic tale behind its name. It’s 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 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 hardworking blade features a satin finish and the strong tip is useful for more detailed tasks. One side of the handle is built with G10 while the other is stainless steel, making it easy to clean and super durable. It’s deployed with a thumb slot opening option as well as a flipper 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.
