CRKNYALA: Nyala, Drop Point
Chris Reeve Knives
In the Chris Reeve Knives tradition of simple, elegant and functional, the Nyala is a modern version of a classic skinner. With two blade shape options – a utility drop point or the Insingo – this all-purpose knife provides enough belly for skinning and will prove useful in a multitude of applications. The integral handle and blade of CPM-S35VN is sturdy and practical - spiral and linear 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' 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!

Leather Sheath
Leather Sheath
Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.
Micarta Handles
Micarta Handles
Micarta is a compressed layered composite sealed within a thermosetting plastic which creates a strong, attractive material that is impervious to water.

Pros: Blade Material, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Weight, Materials, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
This is my first chris reeve knife and must say very impressed. The sheath is second to none, extremely top quality, leather is very snug, thick. Knife does not slip out. Have not used it yet, but very confident will do job well. Only knock (if you will) sv35 is not stamped on blade.
