By Hunters, For Hunters

The Triumph Hunter is the proud achievement of Nock On’s John Dudley and MKC’s Josh Smith first design collaboration. The Montana Knife Company X John Dudley Nock On Triumph is versatile, capable, and full of personality. Light enough for a goat hunt, but large and strong enough to field dress an elk, this knife is ready to tackle any gun or bow hunting excursion. This isn't just another collector’s item, it's a part of your essential gear.


MKC X John Dudley Nock On Collaboration

We wanted to capture the same attention to craftsmanship and excellence John Dudley brings to Nock On in a hunting knife. Now, Montana Knife Company is proud to present this one-of-a-kind collaboration. Based on decades of hunting experience as archery’s top expert, John Dudley’s initial design addressed everything he wanted in a hunting knife: a combination of lightness, size, sharpness, toughness, durability, and unique design. It doesn’t get any better than this.


Parkerized 52100 Carbon Steel Blade:
The Triumph is made from cryogenically-treated 521000 high carbon ball-bearing steel, achieving the perfect balance of toughness, edge-retention, and easy resharpening. The blade is also parkerized to a matte black finish which minimizes rust and glare.
Compact Length:
The Nock On Triumph’s 3.375” blade length minimizes load and space for any pack. Weighing 3.44 oz, it’s ideal for lightweight hunting.
Extended Finger Guard:
The Triumph’s extended finger guard protects fingers from slipping to the blade’s edge during any task.
Balanced Thumb Groove:
Josh and John added a thumb groove to the blade’s spine to give more control, dexterity, and greater ability to apply pressure.
Custom “Feather” G-10 Handle:
G-10 is famous for being strong, durable, and stable — unmatched by any natural handle material. John Dudley’s unmistakable custom "feather" G-10 handle won’t absorb blood and provides superior grip, even when wet and bloody. Three hollows are cut into the handle to decrease weight and allow for maximum epoxy bonding before screws and high-strength Loctite secure the perfect fit.


Customizable Kydex Sheath

Each Montana Knife Company X John Dudley Nock On Triumph comes with an exclusive Kydex sheath. This click-in locking sheath can be adjusted for either horizontal or vertical carry, left or right-hand placement, and varying blade retention. The reversible quick-attach belt clip also lets you attach the sheath without removing or unclasping your belt.

This knife is more than what I expected. Super clean look, razor sharp. Won’t be the last MKC I buy.

Great product!

Best knife I've ever used

This thing is a monster. I shot a pretty big whitetail, pulled this out, and the deer literally gutted itself. In all seriousness, this blade is perfect. Crazy sharp and comfortable in the hand. Looks badass, obviously. Can't wait to work on some hogs tomorrow morning!

Another Great Blade!

Every single MKC Knife I own is an amazing piece of work and this one is no different. And every one will be passed down to my children.


I have a pretty awesome collection of knives and this Triumph is my new absolute favorite. I recently used it to skin and break down a Nice Michigan 8 point buck with no issues at all. It’s in my hunting pack every time I hit the stand.
