Jesper Voxnaes designed the Pilar® to be a reliable everyday carry 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® IV for his daily endeavors.
With a 3-inch clip-point blade made of strong D2 steel, the Pilar® IV provides more utility and control for precise tasks. The handle is made of G10 and stainless steel, combining durability and strength for exceptional grip. The thumb slot makes for easy one-hand opening and the IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system ensures smooth action.
The modern Hemingway needs a modern knife. The Pilar® IV is the perfect fit.
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.
