This Angst model has a black G-10/carbon fiber handle.
The WE Knife Co. Angst is a seriously slick design from Justin Lundquist (who is renowned in the knife industry for slick designs). It's a symetrical design with a cross guard flipper for smooth action on the caged bearings. The blade has a dagger shape that really makes a statement.Features:
The Angst designed by Justin Lundquist is the pinnacle of a gentleman's dagger. superbly light weight, easily concealed with the deep carry pocket clip (right hand tip up only). The handle is made of symmetrically contoured Carbon fiber with seamless g10 inlays. The handle features traction grooves that provide a nice grip yet do not tear up the pockets. Along with these grooves the quillions on the blade prevent the handle from sliding during any thrusting/ stabbing motions. The needle tipped blackwash blade is most impressive, as a lot of manufactures round the tips of knives when sharpening. I was pleasantly surprised to see the tip of the blade was in tact and able to puncture at the slightest touch. The blade deploys effortlessly with a strong detent and the caged ceramic bearings in the pivot. I was genuinely surprised by the action on this knife. You would think since the blade is so light that it would not be a drop shut kind of action however there is no resistance while the blade swings open and closed "on par with custom made knives that run on ikbs". The blade is dead nuts centered, and the lock up is the literal definition of bank vault tight. No wiggle or flex. The blade came very sharp. Pops the hairs right off my arm with ease. Overall, If your on the fence about buying an angst, don't hesitate! It is a phenomenal deal regardless of whether you carry and use it, or just "play" with it at home. The fun factor on this knife is off the charts. ***Disclaimer*** for those wondering if the spine of the blade can be sharpened to make it double edged...The simple answer is Yes. it absolutely can. The blade is far enough into the handle (in the closed position) to not have any portions of sharpened edge exposed. I would recommend to check with your local laws before doing so and I would also recommend familiarizing yourself with the knife before doing so as well.
