The Chris Reeve Nyala - Insingo Blade is a brilliantly designed and crafted fixed blade that is a perfect addition to any collection or for you to use out in the field.
Made of Brown Canvas Micarta that is 3D Machined, the handle is approximately 4.75" long. Similar to the Antelope horns for which this knife is named after, the handle has 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. These features will provide you with a slip resistant grip.
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 beautiful 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.
Slightly broader than a traditional sebenza, this modern day version has a hollow grind and a very consistent bevel to provide you with a very sharp tapered tip. It's easy for you to sharpen and maintain the edge even after significant abuse. Additional stability during use is provided by the jimping on the spine and the tang; it's comfortable when using in several different grip styles.
The sheath, made by Gfeller Casemakers, is water resistant and has a belt loop. You won't need to worry about how to carry or the weather when you are carrying this knife.
As a fixed full tang blade, the Nyala is a phenomenal choice for collectors and law enforcement or military personnel for use during tactical operations. This knife is exactly what is expected of Chris Reeves Knives, an all-American quality knife with cutting edge features making it a reliable and durable choice you will be proud to own.

Bigger than I thought it would be. The handle and blade design are nearly perfect in my opinion. Beautiful sheath.

This is great utility blade shape on a great utility knife. I have been a user of CRK products for years, and have carried a Large Insingo for over three years as my main EDC. I love the blade shape for utility purposes. When I saw they were going to make the Nyala in the insingo configuration, I had to have one. Great knife, I have been using for landscaping duties on the property so far, and plan to carry more regularly for other cutting tasks. Wont be disappointed in this for sure!
