The Archangel is the first real foray into the defensive Wharncliffe style knife. Deviating from our traditional Pikal models, the Archangel gives users a formidable and very effective forward grip defensive knife.
The Wharncliffe, to the uninitiated, may seem like an unlikely contender for an effective defensive knife. Popularised by Michael Janich of Martial Blade Concepts, and famed designer of the Spyderco Yojimbo, the wharncliffe offers users serious cutting power from the straight edge. The Archangel makes use of this extreme cutting power in its design and couples it with the robust frame of thick stock 80Crv2 steel. While it may not seem obvious, the design is also very capable of piercing and thrusting. The flat spine forces the edge into the cut, essentially helping it glide effortlessly through organic materials.
This is a ready to purchase Custom Archangel. The blade is finished in Black Cerakote, with the handle clad in OD Green G10 Scales in our Tsunami texture, with Copper liners adding a touch of colour. The knife is sheathed in a Fold Over style Kydex sheath and supplied with a Soft Loop for OWB carry, although it could be fitted with other mounts as well.
