The Bishop is the newest design in the Ironside Edge Works stable and the first knife designed by both makers. A more conventional forward grip fighter which is as elegant as it is deadly.

The Bishop is influenced by Persian style blades, with a very subtle upswept point. The blade is made from thick stock 80Crv2, which is ground to a fine zero convex edge, making it very sharp. While the Persian influence can be felt in the robust point which is supported by a swedge.

The handle offers a comfortable grip, especially for those with larger hands, without snag points or hot-spots. Importantly, it is comfortable to use in forward, reverse, and while not completely ideal, Pikal grip is also usable
