* Averted in the ''ComicBook/LuckyLuke'' stories, since the FarWest had less of a prison gang environment. On one occasion, Averell made a fake gun out of soap and shoeshine. How? Well, he had a model: the guard's gun, which had been forgotten in the cell. After making Averell eat the soap gun, Joe and his brothers escape.

* Comes up in ''Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack'' on multiple occasions. During orientation, inmates are shown a toothbrush with a razor blade melted into the handle (later, a similar implement is used by [[spoiler: Pennsatucky]] in the shower). [[spoiler: Pennsatucky]] also has a wooden crucifix that has been sharpened to a point. At one point, Piper accidentally takes a screwdriver from the electrical shop that causes the prison to go into a panic due to its potential use as a weapon ([[spoiler: and later, the same screwdriver is returned to Piper specifically to be used as a weapon]]). In the second season, one of the elderly inmates repeatedly stabs another inmate with a shiv [[spoiler: after mistaking her for Vee]].

* In ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'', one of the early uplift experiments (who had to be kept locked up because they're all psychotically violent) mentions carving one by sharpening a plastic spoon. Seeing his fellow uplifts get themselves killed from "testosterone poisoning", he used the shiv to castrate himself.

* in ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', inmates at the Kyln threaten Gamora with a variety of shivs. Since the place is a HellholePrison where the guards don't care what the prisoners do to each other as long as they don't make messes, the shivs range from as big as daggers to as big as machetes and some show quite a bit of craftsmanship.

->''"This shank is a classic. The bottom end of a toothbrush is carved down to its sharpest point, almost like an arrowhead. But the best part is, the weapon doesn't have to be concealed. It can be placed in a pocket, bristles showing. Ready to be grabbed for action!"''

* A regular occurrence (almost to the point of being OnceAnEpisode) on ''Series/{{Oz}}''. In "Cuts Like A Knife", TheNarrator Augustus Hill delivers some exposition on the various types:
** The Gillette Bayonet is created by extracting the blade from a disposable razor (hense the name), and placing the blade in the bottom of a pencil or pen. The problem with putting the shiv together, is that you will most likely cut yourself in the process.

* ''VideoGame/SevenDaysToDie'' lets you craft a shiv out of a piece of bone. While it ''can'' be used as a weapon, its crude nature means it deals very little damage, and it's better off used as a carcass-dressing tool to process animals and zombie corpses.
