CRKT Triumph N.E.C.K Knife Review

CRKT Triumph N.E.C.K Knife ReviewThe triumph is a knife designed by CRKT and Pat Crawford and his son Wes. The design of this knife is more as a self-defense knife and a utility knife because of the curvature of the blade it does make it not the best chopper but more of a cutting or slashing knife and this is what most look for in a self-defense knife. I really do like the design of the knife with its cutouts to reduce weight and the tanto tip is great for cutting. Over the two designs of blade I prefer the black just because I find the steel looks to be too flashy.

CRKT Triumph N.E.C.K Knife ReviewThe Triumph feels outstanding in the hand and the paracord wrap handle is one of the best wraps I have seen. I am fascinated that they could wrap a handle like this with its curves all the way to the tail of the knife no small feat I know I have tried It I and when it comes to curved blade handles it becomes difficult near the end of the handle to keep the paracord from slipping off.

 

CRKT Triumph N.E.C.K Knife ReviewAlthough the knife is a neck knife I find it a little big for around the neck but this can be solved by taking the clip off and installing the MercHarness this small harness made of paracord that has been gutted so that it is like a thin ribbon is ideal for caring this knife.

 

 

CRKT Triumph N.E.C.K Knife ReviewThe ideal conditions for using this MercHarness is for them cases were you can't clip the knife to your belt like when your backpacking down streams or rivers and your wearing swim trunks or shorts were you can't wear a belt this system is ideal!

 

 

CRKT Triumph N.E.C.K Knife ReviewNow for how the knife works well it was quite good I had no problem with it at all as a utility blade it did all I asked of it and I only found one task to be difficult and that is the chopping because the blade is not straight and has a curve it tends to make you work harder than you would with a straight blade but one needs to keep in mind that this blade was primary designed as a self defense knife so there is some limitations but the blade worked great and was light weight enough that you can carry it in the harness all day and you don't even know it's there and after all that's really the point of a knife like this!
