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

knife/carry systems.

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.
