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® Large for his daily endeavors.
The hardworking blade features a stonewash finish and the strong tip is useful for more detailed tasks. It’s deployed from its stainless steel handle with a thumb slot opening option as well as a flipper mechanism and is secured with a frame lock for your safety.
The modern Hemingway needs a modern knife. The Pilar® Large 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.
