CRKT Pilar Folding Knife

During WWII, famed writer and all-around badass Ernest Hemingway sailed around the Caribbean surveilling german U-boats. That 38-foot seafaring vessel was named Pilar. And it is from that boat that this newly released Jesper Voxnaes designed CRKT folding knife derives its name.

Offering a seamless combination of incredible utility and minimal design, this super compact folding knife measures up at just 5.938 inches overall. The blade, which is constructed from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel and has a hardness of 58-60 on the Rockwell scale, is under 2.5 inches in length, has a satin finish, and features a large thumbhole for one-handed deployment. The handle is also built from stainless steel, but has a bead-blasted finish, is equipped with a frame lock, and offers a movable clip for either tip up or tip down carry. Were Hemingway still alive today, he’d probably carry this very blade. It retails for just $40. [Purchase]
