The latest addition to our collection of Kotetsu Iron Clad knives, this is a slightly different shape to the rest.
This Battleship has a small defect on the spine of the knife, it's a small nick like a tiny bubble. This doesn't affect the use of the knife in any way and it has never been used.
Shibata San created this knife to be slightly different to the rest of the Iron Clad range, there is a lot more belly on the knife than the others mainly towards the front with a slightly more pronounced point. This will please any rock choppers out there and you can get quite high up on the tip which is great for precision work.
