By Hunters, For Hunters

The Triumph SL "Super Light" is the proud achievement of the first design collaboration between Nock On’s John Dudley and MKC’s Josh Smith. After an incredibly popular initial drop, we’ve decided to re-release this limited-edition blade design with our signature paracord-wrapped handle to give the Triumph an ultralight advantage.

The Montana Knife Company X John Dudley Nock On Triumph SL 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 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. While the G-10 handle of the original Triumph was already light, we went a step further. After skeletonizing the tang (the steel part of the handle) to shed unnecessary ounces, we wrapped it in 550 paracord to minimize load and improve versatility. It doesn’t get any better (or lighter) than this.


Parkerized 52100 Carbon Steel Blade:
The Triumph SL is made from cryogenically-treated 52100 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 Super Light's 3.375” blade length minimizes load and space for any pack. Weighing 1.9oz, it’s ideal for lightweight hunting.
Extended Finger Guard:
The Triumph SL'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.
550 Paracord Handle
Wrapping the handle in seven feet of 550 paracord was just as much for minimizing weight as maximizing versatility. It can fix a broken boot lace, tie down a tent, hang meat in a tree, act as a tourniquet for wounds, or help in any number of unexpected, emergency situations. And when the paracord is removed from the handle, the Triumph SL still fits securely in its sheath.
Free Sharpening For Life & Beyond
Generations® is our promise to restore your knife to its original, unmatched working condition. MKC will clean, sharpen, repair, and even reshape your blades when necessary. We’ll even rewrap paracord handles, free of charge. While we perform all necessary sharpening and maintenance, our aim is not to return your knife to its brand new appearance.

Very Impressive Quality

I recently received the Nock On Triumph SL. The quality of this knife is amazing. Love the overall design weight and size of this knife. The steel is high quality, it’s sturdy and there is no flex in the blade. It is incredibly sharp and is a perfect knife to have with you on a hunt. I would highly recommend this knife to anyone, as the quality of the knife far exceeds its price point. The only negative I have is regarding the Kydex sheath. After only drawing it a few times, you can see lite scratch marks on the blade from the Kydex. I’m not too bummed since the purpose of this knife (for me) is to be used out in the field and I know it will get some wear and tear. I’m very happy with this knife and very impressed with the quality of MKC.

Thank you for the review! Sorry to hear about the sheath - I would try some blade wax, as those marks will usually go away. If they don't you can always shoot us an email! And adjusting the tension screw may help as well. Please feel free to reach out if need be!

Fantastic Blade and Company

Truly a Great working blade. Took my mule deer 100% from field to table without sharpening once! Gutting/quartering /skinning/and processing with MKC is where it’s at. Great product and collaboration with Nockon.


Field to table is what it's all about! John definitely had some great ideas for these blades and glad to see them getting put to use! Thanks for the photo and for the review - and congrats on the muley!

Triumph SL

Love the knife! It is now my every day carry. It’s light and low profile yet sturdy. And the blade is sharpened to a masterful edge.

Thanks Ian! Those Triumph SL's are quite the knife for such a small package. Thanks for the great review!

Light weight knife, sharp edge, very fast delivery! Looking forward to using it this fall!


Thanks! We like to think our shipping department is the fastest this side of the Mississippi - they do a killer job and really are ultra fast. A lot of long hours to get it done sometimes, too. Thanks for the feedback!
