Nieto knives come from the South-Eastern Spanish city of Albaceta, which has been a centre for knife manufacturing since the 16th Century. In 1980 Miguel Nieto and his sons started making knives that combined modern technology with traditional craftsmanship. While they still draw on the family traditions and secrets of the knife maker’s art which has been handed down from generation to generation, their name is synonymous with traditional design and excellent quality.
The Coyote series is a classic example of Nieto’s design excellence in the form of a high quality drop point hunter knife with a high class finish and choice of premium handle options. Nieto really know how to make a knife that lasts and despite the Coyotes classic good looks, it’s built to work hard season after season. Features include 8cm AN-58 stainless drop point blade, sturdy 3.5mm thick full tang construction, hardened to 58-60 HRC, 330 stainless rivets, overall length of 18cms a high quality leather sheath and handle options of Olive Wood, Violet Wood/ Curley Birch or Violet Wood/Stag Horn.
