A classic design gets a boost in utility. The Pilar IV is a twist on your favorite everyday carry. With a larger clip point blade and a thumb slot opening, it keeps the spirit of the original and the 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 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 IV for his daily endeavors.
With a 3-inch clip-point blade made of strong D2 steel, the Pilar IV provides more utility and control for precise tasks. The handle is made of G10 and stainless steel, combining durability and strength for exceptional grip. The thumb slot makes for easy one-hand opening and the IKBS ball bearing pivot system ensures smooth action.
The modern Hemingway needs a modern knife. The Pilar IV is the perfect fit.
