Chris Reeve is perhaps one of the best-known knife designers in the world and his latest Nyala knife showcases his expertise in adapting classic designs. Inspired by classic skinner knives, this Idaho-built blade blends together minimalist aesthetics with functional design features. While the blade of the Nyla knife is inspired by skinning blades the redesign pushes the knife as a utility tool. This idea of utility is perhaps shown best as the knife comes in two different blade shapes -- a classic drop point or insingo -- both of which were chosen for their ability to tackle multiple tasks.
Other features of the Nyala knife include its natural micarta handle and spiral linear grooves. Both of these elements give the user a better grip over the knife in any condition.
