A homemade weapon usually made out of old crap lying around like broken glass or metal. A shank usually is only for stabbing and has no cutting edge (like a dart, but a lot bigger and more dangerous).
As a verb shank means to stab somebody to death with a shank, with quick short motions to the area just below the ribs.
-In both of these senses shiv means the same thing.

"Shank" can also be used in golf to describe a terrible slice or duff resultant from the club head not centered on the ball during the swing. Also a verb.

I've also heard from a guy in NC that they use "shank" to mean pantsing where he lives. Hardly anybody else I've asked says this is true, though. Must be a southern thing as far as I know. Usually they yell "shank" as they pull down the pants.
-I crafted a shank and shanked this guy in prison.

-Ahh! I shanked that drive!

-"SHANK!" he yelled as he pantsed Robert.

The art of taking a shit whilst having a wank. Great way to save time. Also heightening the pleasure factor, as a big firm dump squeezes past the male g-spot.
I had a monster shit last night. Time was not on my side, so I decided to double up and had myself an awesome shank.


My flatmate left the bathroom door unlocked last night, I accidentally walked in on him Shanking!

The most dangerous form of shiv involves the prisoner using matches or a lighter (both felony level contraband) to burn a toothbrush into the shape of a spike. The spike is most commonly stabbed into the eye or genitals of the intended target.

verb. typically thought of as a way to hurt someone in prison with a handmade knife. However, it has a 2nd meaning. Shank can also mean to draw a penis. The drawing can be as elaborate or as simple as one would like it to be. But the idea is that the penis drawing is a surprise, unbeknownst to the receiver.
" damn, my notebook got shanked..."


"I just shanked your shit"
