The Nyala Knife With Microsilk™ Handle

We are proud to present the latest application of the ground breaking Microsilk™ fiber, a fully sustainable bio-engineered spider silk. After the successful launch of our Microsilk™ Cap of Courage in 2017, we asked our partners at Bolt Threads how we could further apply that revolutionary technology to the Best Made line of products. What the Bolt engineers came back with was both unexpected and inspired: introducing our latest collaboration with Bolt Threads and Chris Reeve Knives.

Story

We are proud to present the latest application of the ground breaking Microsilk™ fiber, a fully sustainable bio-engineered spider silk. After the successful launch of our Microsilk™ Cap of Courage in 2017, we asked our partners at Bolt Threads how we could further apply that revolutionary technology to the Best Made line of products. What the Bolt engineers came back with was both unexpected and inspired: a high-pressured composite, reinforced with a vibrant Microsilk™ substructure, the genesis for the next Best Made knife. Working closely with legendary American knife makers Chris Reeve Knives, and enlisting their iconic Nyala fixed blade pattern, we offer this groundbreaking design in extremely limited quantities.

Chris Reeve’s expert machinists shaped the full-tang blade from incredibly resilient S35VN steel, while the engineers at Bolt Threads formed the Microsilk™ composite handles in their Emeryville, California workshop. The knives were stonewashed, assembled, and hand-finished in Boise, Idaho at Chris Reeve Knives. With this revolutionary fabric composite complementing the highest form of knife manufacturing, our limited edition, USA-made Microsilk™ Nyala Knife is a beautiful tool and a pivotal artifact of design and manufacturing processes.
