"Excellent choice for close man-to-man combat - handy and silent, when you wish to avoid detection"
Otto Wolfgang Ort-Meyer, commenting the Pentagon Knife, Training

The Pentagon Knife is a melee weapon featured in Hitman: Codename 47 and Hitman 2: Silent Assassin. It is the western counterpart of Oyabun Knife and a specialist army knife. Costing only $50, it is the cheapest weapon in the series and much more useful than Fiber Wire, but eventually it is removed from subsequent games.


The blades are 440C high-carbon stainless steel constructed with a traditional style. Unlike Oyabun Knife, the blades are toothed.

Comparisons with Fiber Wire

  • As a bladed weapon, it can be used in two ways, slashing (frontal) and neck slicing (behind), whereas Fiber wire allows only strangulation from behind.
  • It is much cheaper, costing only $50, whilst Fiber wire costs $110.
  • The time required to kill a target is significantly lower than the fiber wire.
  • Being made of metal, it cannot be used in places equipped with metal detectors, such as in "Traditions of the Trade", meanwhile, the fiber wire can pass through without detection.
