CRKT Pilar Large 5315 pocket knife, Jesper Voxnaes design
The CRKT Pilar Large is a nice and solid pocket knife, designed by Jesper Voxnaes. You immediately recognize his hand in this design. The sleek lines that are typical for Danish design, the elongated thumb hole, the finger groove: all typical Vox-design. A stunning pocket knife for daily use. Small enough to not stand out but capable enough for heavy-duty use.
This CRKT Pilar Large is the large version of the normal Pilar. In addition to a significant enlargement of the blade CRKT also added an extra openings mechanism: the flipper. As such you will have another way of quickly having it at the ready. The type of steel of the blade also changed.
The CRKT Pilar Large has a blade made from 8Cr14MoV steel. It retains its sharpness well and is tough. Because of the large finger groove you will still have enough grip with your entire hand. Your thumb will automatically slide towards the spine of the blade. As such you will be able to apply a lot of pressure with this blade.
The stainless steel handle can also handle this. The solid famelock keeps the blade in place. It is remarkable how this knife can feel so great in hand in many different ways. A characteristic of an amazing design.
