The Chris Reeve Nyala - Insingo Blade is a brilliantly designed and crafted fixed blade knife that is a perfect addition to your tactical range bag, hunting kit or can become part of your dependable survival gear. Debuting in 2018, the Nyala is now available in a black canvas micarta and a black leather sheath.
Insingo Blade Shape & Fixed Blade Functionality
The overall length of the Nyala blade (pronounced Nn-yaal-a) is 8.5" long and it weighs 6.2 ounces. The blade, at 3.75" long and 0.18" thick, has a fine stone wash and is made from CPM S35VN Stainless Steel. With a blade hardness of 58-59 RC, it will offer you both high toughness and wear resistance. You will use this razor-sharp blade in the field while performing tactical and covert operations with ease.
Nyala Handle in Black Canvas Micarta
The Nyala handle is made of black canvas micarta that is full 3d machined for maximum comfort and usability. The handle is approximately 4.75" long, with six angled grooves from the center pin to the pin closest to the lanyard hole. Three additional grooves run in a straight line from the pin closest to the guard to the center pin. You can feel the strength and build quality in your hand thanks to the full tang construction on this fixed blade. These features will provide you with a slip-resistant grip and comfortable grip for a variety of slicing motions.
Just like all CR knives, they are both beautiful and functional. Of course it is sharp out of the box. But even more important, it seems to take an edge perfectly. The handle is well weighted and the knife just feels perfect in your hand. Great utility knife. I just wish you could choose either black or natural leather sheath.

Opening a Chris Reeve knife box is like being a child again opening that special Christmas present! Unwrapping it it makes the heart race. Holding the Nyala with the insingo stonewashed razor sharp blade and feeling the black canvas micarta scales is a delight. The perfect feel of the scales and the weight of the knife makes me glad I decided on this beautiful fixed blade. I have medium sized hands and the knife is perfect sized for my hand. The grip is very good and the jimping is very nice. The insingo blade is pure art. Itís of course, razor sharp! I donít know whether to actually use it or just keep it pristine and admire it. This is my fourth Chris Reeve knife and I use them all but take good care of them as they should be. The black sheath smells like the best leather and looks like the best leather. It fits a nice wide belt and the knife fits it perfectly. As you can tell, I am very pleased with this knife and sheath and donít regret adding it to my collection. Chris Reeve knives have never let me down. I carry two everyday. This is my first fixed blade by CR. Now, I may be looking for my next fixed blade. I ordered from KnifeArt.com and as always, Larry and Rodney deliver courteous fast service. I recommend the knife and Knifeart highly
