CRKT Pilar III Framelock Black 5317

Sale priceR 795.00


Where minimal design meets maximum utility. The Pilar III transforms the minimalist’s sailor knife into a distinctly urban everyday carry folder while keeping the spirit of the classic and the epic tale behind its name. It’s still low profile and understated when tucked away, and carefully designed to punch above its weight when in use.

Jesper Voxnaes designed the original 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 III for his daily endeavors.

The substantial 2.967" sheepsfoot blade of the Pilar III features a satin finish and the fine but strong tip is useful for more detailed tasks. The highly grippy G10 handle thrives throughout years of use and the eye-catching, stainless steel lanyard loop elevates the look. A thumb slot opening mechanism deploys the blade and the IKBS ball bearing pivot system makes for a super smooth rotation.

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

Pilar 3 gets it right!

Slim profile, IKBS bearings ensure a snappy opening, drops shut almost too easily! A tad heavy but also isn't a pocket dropper. G10 scale just the right amount of grip. A winner!
