When Jesper Voxnaes 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.
In Depth Look
Where minimal design meets maximum utility. The Pilar is a super compact everyday carry folder with distinctive minimalist design and an epic tale behind its name. It’s low profile and 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 2.4” flat grind blade features a satin finish and the fine, but strong tip is useful for more detailed tasks. It’s deployed from its stainless steel handle with a thumb slot opening 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.

Top customer reviews
The design and materials used make this knife look like it was carved from a block of steel. It has a substantial feel to it and the locking mechanism is strong and well-built. There is no wobble in this $32.00 knife! It is easy to quickly get a good grip on it, an important feature that automatically inspires confidence when you pick it up. And it is just dang functional looking.
I am always looking for well-designed and strongly built knives to add to my collection but this little sweetheart is perfect for EDC. It folds up nice and tight and the sturdy pocket clip keeps it comfortably within reach. This is one of those (seldom made) purchases where you get more than what you paid for. Doesn't happen very often but you need to take advantage of it when it does. "Value engineering" at its finest!!
You could almost say that it "slices up the competition". Pun intended.
