Amidst a sea of innovative and aggressive designs, the simple and unassuming CRKT Pilar continues to trend on our charts as a small, yet functional EDC knife. Jesper Voxnaes is the knife designer and this minimalistic design has some of his best features. The thumbhole cuts out the blade’s 2.4-inch sheepsfoot satin-finished.
It is a popular choice for this price range, but the 8Cr13MoV steel blade steel can still hold a decent edge and be sharpened easily in a daily-use knife. Its tough framelock design makes it a good choice for this role. The blade’s integrated forward fingers choil and aggressive cutout on its handle provide good ergonomics, ensuring comfort and confidence while using it. A robust, stainless steel pocket clip is mounted on the framelock side, which allows for tip-up and tip-down carrying. The framelock is tough and functional, making it an ideal choice for anyone looking for a durable and useful knife for EDC.
The price range starts from 51$ USD.
