- "...but Beren despoiled him of his gear and weapons, and took his knife, Angrist. That knife was made by Telchar of Nogrod, and hung sheathless by his side; iron it would cleave as if it were green wood."
- —The Silmarillion, Of Beren and Lúthien
Angrist was a knife made by Telchar of Nogrod and borne by Curufin, one of Feanor's sons. It was taken from Curufin by Beren, who use it to cut a Silmaril out of Melkor's Iron Crown. However, as he was attempting to remove a second Silmaril, the knife broke and it cut Melkor. It was the mate of Narsil.
