But where did you read this? I've never heard of it.
The VN, where else?
I remember when Shiki first got the knife, it was inside a thin wooden box about 20 cm long, came from the Arima family, and was left to him by Mikihisa. It says so in the man's will. Inside was a 10 cm bar of iron (which is actually the handle), and it was Kohaku that said that the iron bar was actually a knife (with a 10cm blade). Kohaku commented that the blade was old and she replaced it right then.
I'm going to re-read the VN to make sure, but I'm pretty sure that Kohaku actually DID replace the blade of the knife.
It was in the beginning of Day 2, just after the Wan Wan Panic event with Nero IIRC.
