All stainless steel folder.

When you order as much as I do from Blue Ridge Knives you get free stuff. The last shipment brought me a knife I had never seen or heard of.

It's an all stainless steel Pilar folder, made from the thickest slats of premium steel I've ever seen.

And while I got it for free, the dealer price to me was 22.00 dollars each if I wanted more.

Incredible knife, the edge polishes like cream...

Up or down pocket clip, index flipper, and that blade shape... man, I could really do some damage with that. To myself.

JBear, no you can't.

You see, that one is mine, in fact, it's already in my jeans. And for that 22.00 dollars I believe that Pilar is one of the top five knives I've owned in my lifetime.

That is no exaggeration. The blade blank is thick, but the edge is even front to back and left to right like a polisher cut it.

I'm going to order four or five. I honestly believe this is a superior knife and I want to stock up before the factory finds out just what they have!

Here is the cleaned and polished Pilar on the infamous Queen of Hearts. Yikes, the edge and the finish is so well done I had to waltz around trying to find an angle that did not glare.

I have also taken a picture of the blade blank width. This knife will not break and let you down. I would ask you guys to do a little research, it's a fantastic knife.

I'm going to buy five from Blue Ridge tomorrow if I can get them. My wife wants one, and I owe one to a biker friend.

I bought mine out of the Blue Ridge catalog, which is the usual place for the discounts and clearance merchandise. There might not be any available since I saw the ad in their May issue.
