The Glass Shiv is a melee weapon found in Hitman: Absolution.


"A broken piece of glass with a makeshift handle. Often known as a prison knife."

The glass shiv can be found in only one mission in Absolution. It is a handcrafted weapon commonly found in prisons around the world. This one consists of a glass blade, and a metal handle wrapped with string.

The glass shiv can be used to attack head-on to stab a target in the stomach, sneak up behind an unsuspecting target and slit their throat, or by throwing it into the head of a target. Alternatively, it may be thrown and used as a distraction.
