CR5315G: Jesper Voxnaes 5315G Pilar Large
CRKT
 
Where minimal design meets maximum utility. The Pilar is a minimalist’s everyday carry folder with clean design and an epic tale behind its name. It’s understated when tucked away and carefully designed to punch above its weight when in use. 

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 hardworking blade features a satin finish 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.

Underwhelmed
I was surprised at how much I loved and used the original Pilar so I was excited when the large version was announced. When I got it I was excited. It looks great and it's d2. I went to open it and it was rough. Very hard to flip open. I had to use a lot of wrist. Even with the thumb hole it was hard to open. I found myself just using both hands. The lock up also was subpar. Very little of the frame lock was holding the blade open. I decided to take it apart and see what was up. It was dirty in there so I wipes everything clean and lubed it up. When I put it together I tightened the pivot till it flipped open good but the blade was a little loose still and sitting to one side when closed. I adjusted to where it opens just ok and the blade is almost centered when closed. I carried it a couple of times but instead of feeling the joy of having to use my knife I found myself just, well, blah. At first I thought I was spoiled by my more expensive knives so I started carrying a couple of my other budget knives and it doesn't compare. I still love the blade shape and the knife looks good butI think I'm going to stick to the small version.
