The TRICON model fixed blade was conceived with the goal of producing a simple and streamlined design to facilitate a wide variety of carry options. Whether mounted to a plate carrier, or concealed carried carry in plain clothes, the TRICON fixed blade provides the user with a simple, easy to deploy, defense option.

“While attending a Trident Concepts course, Jeff Gonzales (TRICON founder) and I had a conversation about edged weapons and it turned out nothing out there completely met his needs. I figured I could leverage our excellent relationship with Strider Knives to produce a new model that fit the profile Jeff was looking for,” explained Monkey Edge principal Brady Miller.

I am thrilled at how it turned out. The Strider team did an amazing job,” said Jeff.
