Every professional operator knows about those situations when their primary weapon cannot be used, whether due to surprise attack, proximity of bystanders, equipment malfunction or lack of ammunition. Pat Crawford designed the Triumph N.E.C.K.™ (No-nonsense Emergency Compact Knife) for just those occasions.
The Triumph N.E.C.K. is based on the same beefy 0.14" thick blade used on the Triumph Folder. In this case it is a full-tang skeletonized design, with recurved dual-grind Tanto to aid cutting and a false top edge grind for penetrating power.
Triumph N.E.C.K.™ Satin. Our basic system includes the Triumph N.E.C.K. knife in a satin finish plus a custom Kydex® sheath with a patented* quick-release belt-mounting system. The basic sheath has detents which grip the knife securely for inverted carry as a neck knife with a chain (not included). The belt clip can be attached with the Chicago screws provided for vertical or horizontal carry. Simply press in the injection-molded nylon retaining clip for instant attachment or release.
The N.E.C.K. is an exceptional value. Think of it as a little insurance policy.
Got the knife a week ago, and used it for some simple light cutting. No super tough jobs yet but will update when I have. For starters, the knife is very light but you know your holding a solid knife in your hand. Grips well with the paracord wrap. Blade came sharp out of the box and 3Cr13 will hold the edge well enough for any EDC purpose. The recurve will cut ANYTHING, but will be a pain in the arse to sharpen. The bevel makes it a great tool and blade tip. The spine is nicely squared off - sharp 90 degree points on spine makes it ideal for use with a fire rod. The jimping is sharp but not uncomfortable. Just a great all around knife, especially if you don't care about sharpening the recurve blade.

Great knife really sharp out of the box. Don't really like the Sheath that it comes with but over all great knife for the price.
