29 Mar Columbia River Knife and Tool CRKT Pilar–Minimalist EDC Gear
How does your EDC knife compare to this? We are always impressed with Columbia River’s designs. The Columbia River Knife and Tool 5311 CRKT Pilar is no exception.
The Pilar™ is a super compact everyday carry folder with distinctive minimalist design and an epic tale behind its name. It’s low profile is understated when tucked away, and carefully designed to punch above its weight when in use. Where minimal design meets maximum utility.
The Pilar was designed by Jesper Voxnaes in his Logstrup, Denmark shop. “Pilar” is named after Ernest Hemingway’s beloved sailboat—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 2.4” Flat grind blade features a satin finish and the fine but strong tip is useful for more detailed tasks. It’s deployed from its stainless steel handle with a thumb slot opening 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.
