Description

Jesper Voxnaes designed the Pilar with the inspiration of Ernest Hemingway and his beloved sailboat the Pilar. The Pilar was a 38-foot long vessel that Hemingway used for renegade surveillance of German U-boats during WWII in Caribbean waters. He and CRKT are back again with the Pilar Large, a scaled up version of this amazingly popular design that also offers flipper deployment! The CRKT Pilar Large is a robust frame lock with a highly utilitarian, modified Sheepsfoot blade that is tough enough for heavy use while still retaining enough refinement for detail work. The Pilar Large has a longer blade and handle but only an increase in blade thickness by 0.1mm making for even better cutting performance. This version is the G-10 handle model.

Blade: The Pilar Large has a satin finished, modified Sheepsfoot blade with a nearly full flat grind for a high level of cutting efficiency. The robust tip still allows for fine work while being very durable. The blade opens smoothly with either hand via an oval blade hole or the integral flipper tab.

Handle: The handles of the Pilar Large are constructed from robust, bead-blast finish stainless steel and black G10. The handles are contoured for comfort during long use and the the back scale makes up the robust frame lock that allows for safe use of the blade and one-hand operation. The G10 front scale offers enhanced traction and weight reduction for better carry.

Carries via a right hand, tip-up/down, stainless steel clip.

8Cr14MoV Stainless: is a highly corrosion resistant stainless steel with decent toughness and edge holding. This steel is in the same class as 440B and AUS-8.
