This takes place at the end of Chapter 3.

After gaining access to the final area, you'll need to get a chainsaw to open the gate. The chainsaw is only found on the sadist which is a boss type enemy found inside the barn. Before going into the barn and releasing him from behind the gate, you'll want to explore the house with the rifle man on the balcony which contains a bow and shotgun. You'll also want to go up the ladder of the tall watchtower in the middle of the area where you'll find flash bolts at the top. You'll also want to disarm traps in order to gain parts to craft a total of 3 explosive bolts & 2 flash bolts. With your equipment ready, it is time to go to the barn and release the sadist by shooting open the gate.

Once the sadist comes out you will want to directly hit him with 3 explosive bolts as fast as possible. After those 3 bolts you can use you shotgun to hit his legs from a distance in order to weaken him a little, but make sure you DO NOT KILL HIM. With the enemy weakened, you'll want to take out your flash bolt and aim it near the enemy's feet, in order to stun him. Once he is stunned, crouch behind him and press the button prompt to preform a stealth knife strike. If he is weak enough he will die on the first try. If not, use your second flash bolt and try it again in order to kill him. If your knife strike kills him the achievement will unlock.

If you are not successful, you can craft more flash bolts, or die on purpose in order to be reset to a checkpoint so that you can try again.
