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.

The Tier 1 Archangel has a very ergonomic handle designed to be comfortable in the forward grip, thumb forward position, with the added retention of a deep finger choil, which also helps index your hand on the draw. This is a great knife for forward grip methodology.

The Tier 1 range finishes the blade in Matte Black Cerakote for a durable and user friendly blade, with little required maintenance. The handle options include Black G10, OD Green G10 and Carbon Fiber, which are textured in the Rogue pattern. The Archangel is housed in a Fold Over Kydex sheath with your choice of IWB or OWB Mounting.

The Tier 1 range is designed to offer an affordable utilitarian defensive knife option to those looking for an expedient solution. These knives are made in batches and sold in drops which are announced on our Social Media channels. If we don’t have what you’re looking for now, keep an eye out for the next drop!
