When all else fails, you might need Pat Crawford’s Triumph™
N.E.C.K.™ (No-nonsense Emergency Compact Knife.) Two versions are
available as CRKT® production knives.
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, and Columbia River Knife & Tool®
(CRKT®) is proud to offer this design in two production models.
Both Triumph N.E.C.K. models are based on the same beefy 0.14” thick blade used on the
Crawford customs. 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. We offer two different
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.
Triumph N.E.C.K.™ Cord Wrapped. The deluxe system includes the knife with a
nonreflective black EDP coating, cord-wrapped handle, the custom Kydex sheath and belt clip
described above, and a Biotac™ harness. The olive drab nylon paracord wrap gives excellent
feel and grip, and terminates in a fob.
The Biotac™, designed by Ed Van Hoy, is a revolutionary way to carry fixed blades. The
harness is a length of mil-spec 550 paracord. A spring-loaded locking retainer allows
adjustment of the Biotac even when wearing it. Users just loop the cord through the eyelets of
the Triumph N.E.C.K. sheath and slip the Biotac harness over their shoulders or around their
waist for comfort and concealability under uniforms, tactical vests or shirts. Drawing from the
Biotac is lightning quick from any of six basic positions, with either a cross draw to the
forward grip, or a same-side draw to a reverse grip.
Both combinations are exceptional values. You decide whether you need the minimal and
very flat satin model 2030, or the grip and comfort of the cord-wrapped 2030CW. Think of
them as little insurance policies.
MSRP for the satin model is $39.99 and for the cord-wrapped “CW” model, $49.99.
