The Pilar is one of many new models released by CRKT this year. Designed by Danish knifemaker Jesper Voxnaes, this simple folder offers a complex backstory--being named after Ernest Hemingway's personal 38' sailboat that he used for renegade surveillance on German U-boats during World World II. Voxnaes, who has designed numerous knives for CRKT in addition for many of the other elite manufacturers, brings us another no-nonsense classic--offering ergonomic styling in a frame lock design in addition to providing a convenient finger choil and elongated finger groove for precise cutting tasks as well as a thumb slot for manual blade deployment. From the beginning, CRKT has been driven by a single purpose: to bring useful technological advancements and entirely new product concepts to today's market. This model, the 5311, features a stainless steel handle, a sheepsfoot style blade in a satin finish and the reversible pocket clip is designed for the traditional side of the handle only but it is eligible for a tip up or a tip down carry option.SPECIFICATIONS:
