By Hunters, For Hunters

The Triumph Hunter XL is the proud achievement of Nock On’s John Dudley and MKC’s Josh Smith one-of-a-kind design collaboration. The Montana Knife Company X John Dudley Nock On Triumph XL is as versatile and capable as it is unique. Light enough for a goat hunt, but large and strong enough to field dress an elk, this knife is ready to tackle any hunting excursion.


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 unequaled 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.


Parkerized 52100 Carbon Steel Blade:
The Triumph XL 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.
Extra Large Blade:
The Nock On Triumph XL’s 5.125” blade gives you even more steel for demanding jobs. Weighing just 6.2 oz, the Triumph XL is still incredibly lightweight for a 9.75” knife.
Extended Finger Guard:
The Triumph XL'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 XL 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.

The last knife you will put in your pack!!

I have used this on multiple deer already this year! Very sharp and great size and weight. I used to switch between a fillet knife and a small “gutting” knife. No need now. Long and narrow enough to replace the fillet and fits in your hand perfect for “inside” work.

Love MKC!

Love MKC and love my new Triumph Hunter XL! Have been a big fan of the brand ever since I learned about MKC and what they stand for. Grip feels great in my hand and is well balanced. The craftsmanship is incredible! No harvest with it yet, but looking forward to a nice Indiana Whitetail before the end of December. Hope to visit MT again and have a chance to use my MKC blade on some larger game out West. Thanks for all you do!

Great Quality

I love the size and weight of this thing! Very balanced and the textured handle has an awesome feel. Fits great in my hand no matter how I'm holding it. They sell out extremely quickly after restock...and for good reason too! If and when you can get your hands on one, I highly recommend it. It is so "choice" and because of this knife, I was first in (virtual) line to get the Magnacut Stonewall as soon as it dropped.

Just Awesome!

Second to none, quality craftsmanship.

Love it

I bought this knife for my son. I personally have a Blackfoot and absolutely love it, but he likes a bigger hunting knife. I thought this one was going to be a little too big for my liking but I was wrong. I love the size and feel of this knife. Ridiculously sharp, like my Blackfoot. Great company, amazing product. I highly recommend.
