Chris Reeve Knives: Nyala - Insingo Grind

In the Chris Reeve Knives tradition of simple, elegant and functional, the Nyala is a modern version of a classic skinner.

Featuring the utility of a drop point and 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!

    Better than expected.

    I've only had this knife for a few days but it has fast become a favorite.
    I took it on a day trip yesterday and it performed flawlessly. I performed a variety of cutting tasks including some notching, food prep, feather sticking(took some getting used to as my other blades have saber/scandi grinds) and some basic whittling. I didn't do any batoning but I imagine it could handle lighter work.
    I had no issues with the texturing on the handle slabs and it felt secure and comfortable in my hand. I like that it presents as a small package overall in or out of the sheath but performs like a bigger knife when put to work.
    I originally planned to get the clip point model but as they were out of stock I figured I'd give the Insingo grind a try, I'm glad I did.
    I had a small incident where I cut through a box and hit a rim on a can putting a slight roll on a small section of the edge. A few swipes on a fine/extra fine DMT followed by a quick strop with some Bark River green and it was back in business.
    Overall I highly recommend this knife to anyone looking for a light weight smallish blade that carries easily but performs mightily.
