Chris Reeve Nyala Insingo Fixed 3.75" S35VN Satin Blade, Brown Canvas Micarta Handles, Leather Sheath - CRKNYALAINSINGO
CRKNYALAINSINGO: Nyala Insingo
Chris Reeve Knives
Chris Reeve began adding the Insingo blade shape to various models a couple years ago. The Insingo is Chris’s take on the sheepsfoot, and it fits his designs very well. The latest model to get the Insingo treatment is the Nyala, and this compact skinner really benefits from the added blade surface and edge control.
In the Chris Reeve Knives tradition of simple, elegant and functional, the Nyala is a modern version of a classic hunting knife.
Featuring the strength of a sheepsfoot design with enough belly for skinning, this all purpose knife will prove useful in a multitude of applications. The integral handle and blade of CPM S35VN is sturdy and practical - spiral and lineal grooves in the micarta handle provide positive grip - good knife control is provided by serrations on the spine.
The high quality sheath is made of leather treated to be water resistant.
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!
