Tough. Sharp. Versatile. Adaptable. Remarkably light.
It isn’t hard to see why The Speedgoat is one of our most popular blades. It can handle just about anything — from caping, gutting, skinning, and deboning an elk to cleaning fish, cutting line, and so much more. And at just 1.7 oz, this do-it-all blade is specifically crafted to be packed to the most difficult-to-access locations so you can pursue your passions faster.
The Speedgoat takes its name from the Pronghorn Antelope native to Montana and the American West. As the fastest land mammal in the Western Hemisphere, it moves through the toughest terrain with speed and precision, making it the perfect symbol for our lightest hunting blade.
DETAILED BREAKDOWN OF FEATURES
The Speedgoat 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.
While the G-10 handles of our other blades are already light, we wanted to take our approach to ultralight knives step further. After skeletonizing the tang (steel part of the handle) to shed unnecessary ounces, we wrapped it in 550 paracord to minimize load. The Speedgoat’s blade is also ultra-thin, measuring just 0.095” thick at the spine.
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 Speedgoat still fits securely in its sheath.
Full Size Handle Length
Too often, ultralight knives have shortened, unwrapped handles that can quickly wear out your hands as you process an animal. Despite its ultralight design, the Speedgoat has enough handle to keep your hands comfortable enough for extended use.
EXCLUSIVE MKC OPEN CARRY SHEATH 2.0
Each Montana Knife Company™ Speedgoat 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. And at just 2 oz, it’s still economical for your ultralight needs.

Light weight! Extremely sharp and easily concealable in a variety of configurations. For edc, it doesn’t get much better than this.
Great knife with a VERY sharp blade straight out of the box. Excited to use this on future outdoor expeditions and see what it can really do
I bought the Speedgoat as a gift for my oldest sons birthday. He has been saying he wanted one and I happened to have fire money from the Campfire in Paradise CA area at the time that MKC started to have them permanently. So I bought one and then bought him the Stonedgoat also the next day on the drop. Good deal!
He loves how light and sharp the knives are. Great feel in the hand and is looking forward to putting them to use in deer season. He did clean a 21” trout and loves the feel with the paracord handle. Glad to support MKC, USA! 🇺🇸
Bought as a gift for a friend. They love it!
I was up fishing in Wyoming at Flaming Gorge and caught a stringer of mackinaw pups, about 3lbs each. Since it's now state law to keep em if you catch em we planned on filleting them. When we got to the cleaning station my buddy pulls out a 6" Rapala filter knife with a broken handle and the sharpness of a butter knife.
Thankfully I don't head to the lake without a few survival items including a good knife, in this case I had my new MKC SpeedGoat on my belt.
With a few modifications to technique the SpeedGoat had the stringer filleted, cleaned and bagged in no time at all. The SpeedGoat never needed sharpening, even with the thick bones in a mack pup, and was the talk of the station. A guy next to me offered his filet knife then just watched as he realized I was going faster, ending up with cleaner filets with way less bones than he was with his Kershaw 8" fillet knife. As I was cleaning up the station he asked to try the SpeedGoat, after the 1st fish he said to his wife that the SpeedGoat was what he wanted for his birthday
I still want a MKC Flathead Fillet Knife as soon as in stock but my SpeedGoat, Blackfoot or both will be there with it every trip everytime!
