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.

Unreal edge retention

Hands down the best knife I’ve used. So impressed that I’ve since bought a few more as gifts. Every time I heard a buddy touching up their blade, I laughed to myself as mine was cruising through the elk unbothered.
