Jesper Voxnaes designed the 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® for his daily endeavors.
The impressively strong D2 steel blade is finished with black oxide and the strong tip is useful for more detailed tasks. One side of the handle is built with G10 while the other is stainless steel, making it easy to clean and super durable. It’s deployed 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 is the ultimate Renaissance man, and the Pilar® 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.
