The Columbia River Knife and Tool company is a favorite of knife enthusiasts across the world. And their innovative and welcoming approach to knife design has made the brand a perfect jumping-off point for forward-thinking knifemakers as far off as central Europe—as with their Pillar III Knife, designed by esper Voxnaes in Loegstrup, Denmark.
Generally understated but with a touch of flash thanks to its textured handle and all-black coating, the Pillar III is a reliable everyday carry knife that will look good in any guy’s loadout. Its Sandvik 12C27 blade steel offers excellent edge retention and corrosion resistance, while a ball bearing pivot allows you to deploy that blade with exceptional ease. Complete with a frame lock and low profile pocket carry clip, it’s a fantastic (and quite affordable) folder.
