A partially broken cannon barrel is used when repairing dwarf multicannons within the Artisans' Workshop. It can be repaired on an anvil into an almost fixed cannon barrel. Upon completely fixing it completely, it will become a cannon barrel.
This item cannot be taken outside of the repair area, but it can be re-obtained from Isak if you have left the area after obtaining it.
