yes you can use the shive 2 times there is a little notch when you use a shiv once the notch cuts in half the the second the shiv breaks


Nah... it depends if you have found training manuals. I currently have it at 3 and I think I had it up to 4 in my last playthrough.


IMPOSSIBRU!!! No, seriously. You're thinking of something else. There's only 3 uses max.

Yup, it is at the bottom of the pills upgrade list. The very final item.

This is Shiv Master explained. 

 

When you have level 1 Shiv, it will break whenever you use it no matter what. Level 2 Shiv, you can execute with it twice, but if you use it to parry off a clicker it gets COMPLETELY USED UP, like a shiv door, no matter if it still had all 2 uses. Level 3 Shiv, you can execute 3 times, but the shiv will be COMPLETELY USED UP when parrying a clicker.  If you have Shiv Master, the level 3 shiv will only go down 1 notch, just like if you had used it to execute. But anything less then level 3 shiv will be completely used up regardless of Shiv Master or not. 

 

That is what shiv master is for, keeping shivs from completely breaking when parrying clickers. It is the most useless upgrade, because you should never have to parry a clicker. ONLY USE SHIVS FOR SHIV DOOR.

Shivs will always break if you retaliate a clicker's attack or if you open a shiv door.

I think you guys got it wrong... It doesn't get used up if you are at level two and have three degradation slots per shiv. I know because I tried it. I had three full shivs and managed to kill 6 clickers by hitting triangle after they grabbed me and still had a shiv left.

uhhhh thats what I said. I think you got the "levels" part in my comment backwards. When I said "levels" i meant the level of the shiv after finding Manuals, I didnt mean "Shiv Master" levels. You have to get the Shiv completely upgraded AND get Shiv Master for the shiv to just deteroriate instead of completely breaking. If you have Shiv Master but not fully upgraded Shiv, it will break upon parrying. If you have fully upgraded shiv but no Shiv Master it will still break. You must have both
