Chris Reeve Nyala Insingo Fixed Blade Knife Brown Micarta


In the Chris Reeve Knives tradition of simple, elegant and functional, the Nyala is a modern version of a classic skinner. This one features the utility on the Insingo blade shape. The blade is smokey gray PVD coated S35VN steel. It is outfitted with spiral and lineal grooves in the Micarta scales to provide positive grip—good knife control is provided by serrations on the spine. Includes a high quality leather sheath.

The Nyala is a Southern African antelope found in dense forested areas, and is one of Chris’s favorite African animals. They are prevalent in Mkuze Game Reserve in the northern KwaZulu Natal region of South Africa—one of Chris’s favorite areas. Nyala (pronounced Nn-yaal-a) is the Zulu and Swahili name for this handsome antelope. Male Nyala are most easily recognized by their distinctive spiral horns and vertical striped bodies. The grooves on the handles of knife Nyala, are reminiscent of those distinctive spiral horns, hence the decision to borrow the name!
