CRKT Pilar III

Where minimal design meets maximum utility. The CRKT Pilar III transforms the minimalist’s sailor knife into an impressive folder while keeping the spirit of the classic and the epic tale behind its name. It’s still low profile and understated when tucked away, and carefully designed to punch above its weight when in use.

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 vet, big-game hunter, sailor, and fisherman, and certainly would have selected an everyday knife companion like the Pilar® III for his daily endeavors.

The substantial 2.9” spear point blade of the Pilar III features a satin finish and the fine but strong tip is useful for more detailed tasks. The highly grippy G10 handle thrives throughout years of use and the eye-catching, stainless steel lanyard loop elevates the look. A thumb slot opening mechanism deploys the blade and the IKBS ball bearing pivot system makes for a super smooth rotation.

The modern Hemingway is the ultimate Renaissance man, and the Pilar III is the knife that will stand up to the challenge.

    Absolutely the best pocket knife I’ve owned for the price! Came razor sharp and ready to use! It’s that good I’m going to buy another.

    Great knife

    Posted by Joshua Skehan on 16th Feb 2021

    Great knife. Near perfect ergos, really locks into the hand well with that forward finger choil. I believe this runs on bearings and you can tell. Really smooth opening, I find spydie flicking easiest but can thumb flick and slow role. Easy disengagement, no lock stick, solid lockup. Blade came sharpened at a higher angle on one side but a quick sharpen fixed it. Would recommend.
