A Shiv is a small dagger-like weapon used as protection in the Markarth prison Cidhna Mine. Since it is a dagger it is affected by perks in the Sneak skill tree, making it a powerful weapon for playes with the 'Assassin's Blade' perk.

[edit] Location

The main way to get a Shiv is from trading Skooma with Grimsvar the Unlucky. This is a required for progression in the quest 'No One Escapes Cidhna Mine'

On rare occasion shivs can be bought from Lisbet at Arnleif and Sons Trading Company in Markarth.

Alternatively with the correct sneak perks a Shiv can be pickpocketed from prisoners at Cidhna Mine.
