Angrist was a knife made by the Telchar of Nogrod for Curufin. Its name means "Iron-cutter". 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. But it snapped then, and Morgoth stirred as the shard grazed his brow. No more is said of the knife.
