Chris Reeve Knives   NYALA

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 different
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' 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!
