The Meat Cleaver (also known as the "Cleaver") is a weapon that appears for the first time in Hitman: Codename 47, then in Hitman: Contracts, in Hitman: Blood Money, and finally HITMAN™.


This melee weapon works well for quick stealth kills that are only possible if the victim has their back turned. It can also kill any person with a few attacks, but at the great risk of alerting somebody. In Codename 47, the stealth kill is identical to those of the Pentagon Knife, and the Kitchen Knife, whilst in Contracts and Blood Money, it has a unique stealth kill where Agent 47 penetrates the skull of the victim with it.
