CRKT Pilar Copper EDC Folding Pocket Knife
There was a girl named Pilar in my class in 1st grade. She was very popular because her mom knew how to make pinatas and always sent one to school chock full of Laffy Taffy and Smarties for major holidays, such as Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's Day, and Pilar's birthday.
While probably not as awesome as a Pilar's mama's pinatas, this Pilar Copper EDC folding pocket knife from CRKT should make a lot of male adults as happy as piles of Laffy Taffy and Smarties made me when I was an elementary school child. In fact, it may go over even better than a pinata on the upcoming major holiday of Father's Day, presuming you give the knife as a gift for Dad, and don't just buy one for yourself and wave it around to make him jealous.
Originally designed by Jesper Voxnaes, the Pilar pocket knife is named after Ernest Hemingway's "beloved boat." Apparently the author used his Pilar to do some renegade surveillance of Nazi U-boats in the Caribbean during WWII. And also some fishing. The copper knife version of the Pilar should be able to help today's carriers out with at least one of those things too.
The CRKT production has a 2.4" flat grind blade with a satin finish. Pilar's front handle is its copper namesake, while the back is stainless steel for a visually resplendent two-tone look. Closed the pocket knife measures 3.51" long. A thumb slot mechanism deploys the blade, and open it extends to 5.85" long. Weight is 4 ounces.
