Angrist was a knife made by the Dwarf-smith Telchar for the Elf-lord Curufin in the First Age. It was taken from Curufin by Beren Erchamion during the Quest for the Silmaril, who used it to cut through the Iron Crown of Morgoth and free a Silmaril. The blade snapped, however, and Morgoth stirred as a shard grazed his brow. Beren left Angrist behind as he escaped.

Angrist means "Iron Cleaver" in Sindarin (from ang = "iron" and crist = "cleaver").
