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. or No-nonsense Emergency Compact Knife for just those occasions.
The Columbia River Knife and Tool Triumph N.E.C.K. Cord Wrapped model 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.This deluxe system includes the fixed blade knife with a non-reflective black EDP coating, cord-wrapped handle, a custom Kydex sheath and belt clip and a harness. The olive drab nylon paracord wrap gives the knife excellent feel and grip, and terminates in a fob.
The included custom Kydex sheath features 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 harness is a length of mil-spec paracord, gutted so it is flat. Soft rubber keepers allow adjustment of the harness even when wearing it. Users just tie the cord through the eyelets of the CRKT Triumph N.E.C.K. sheath and slip the harness over their shoulders for comfort and concealability under uniforms, tactical vests or even T-shirts. Drawing from the harness is lightning quick with either a cross draw to the forward grip, or a same-side draw to a reverse grip.
The cord-wrapped CRKT 2030CW fixed blade knife is an exceptional value. Think of it as a little insurance policy.
