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® Copper 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. The front of the handle is copper, the back is stainless steel for an eye-catching, two-tone look. A thumb slot opening mechanism deploys the blade and it’s secured with a frame lock for your safety.
The modern Hemingway is the ultimate Renaissance man, and the Pilar® Copper is the knife that will stand up to the challenge.
When Jesper needs to test a design, he only has to step into his own backyard. The harsh elements and conditions of the fjords and forests in his native Denmark do the rest. When he was starting out, no one was making the kind of knives he wanted to design so he learned by trial and error. Apparently his efforts paid off given his IF Award in 2013 for one of the Top European Designs. Now he creates and uses knives like the Amicus® as he sails, camps, and drives off-road. Which is more often than not.
