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 Satin Black Cerakote, with the handle simple clad in scales of Elm Burl in our grooved texture, with Black G10 liners and carbon pins 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.
You can additionally add a Blunt Trainer version with your order as an option for a slight discount, ensuring we can make the trainer to match the live blade as close as possible.
The Archangel is a new model with this being the first custom version ever made.
