Best Knife Skins in CS:GO

Knife skins in CS:GO are probably the most famous skins in the game. They all belong to the Exceedingly Rare rarity class, which automatically makes them a lot more valuable than most cosmetic items. 

The odds of unboxing a knife or a pair of gloves is around 1/400, which is one of the reasons why you should always consider purchasing your desired knife skin directly on Tradeit or the Steam Market. Otherwise, you’ll likely need to open thousands of weapon cases to get it.

Here are some of the best knife skins in CS:GO, in case you want to acquire one for personal use, as a gift, or as an investment for the future. The game’s player base is expanding, and the prices of skins are likely to increase in the coming years.

1. Butterfly Knife | Fade

This beauty costs around $2000 – $2500 and can be found inside the Operation Breakout Weapon Case. This case is full of butterfly knives, which is one of the reasons why it’s relatively expensive.

Like other Fade skins, the butterfly fade looks amazing but it’s quite rare. You’ll need to find lots of knife skins before you finally find a Fade. And that means you probably shouldn’t try to find this skin on purpose. It will likely cost you a lot more than $2000 that way.

Visually, Fade starts with a rusty color on the tip of the blade and transitions into a brown-orange one. It’s unmistakable and you will rarely find a player who owns such a skin. This is one of the high-end knife skins on the market.

2. Butterfly Knife | Tiger Tooth

This skin costs around $1250 and its color resembles that of a tiger. Because it’s a butterfly skin, you won’t find it in that many cases. Only the Spectrum 2 Case and the Spectrum case contain it.

There are less than 10.000 Tiger Tooth skins in total and the CS:GO community has around 20 million players. This means that only one person in 2000 owns one.

You will find this skin for sale only in two versions: Minimal Wear and Factory new. The visual difference is not that big, so you can buy whichever you want without having to worry too much about the difference in quality.

3. Karambit | Lore

This karambit skin makes the weapon feel like it’s made out of gold. The patterns on it are quite fancy and the overall design will give you a feeling of both relaxation and prestige when carrying the knife.

In CS:GO, you find yourself holding a knife for at least 10 seconds in every single round, so it’s important to own a knife skin that gives you a positive feeling. This one is one of the best.

Its cost is somewhere between $850 and $1500. You will find it in multiple versions but you should choose one with a low float value. The Field Tested model is the worst that you should consider.

This skin can be found in the Gamma Case and the Gamma 2 Case. But it’s unlikely that you will stumble upon it.

If you want something even more spectacular, buy the butterfly knife Lore skin. That one’s price can go up to $6000.

4. Butterfly Knife | Crimson Web

This is one of the most expensive skins in CS:GO. You’ll need to pay around $6000 for a high-quality model, and the StatTrak version costs twice as much.

Visually, it’s hard to think of a more impressive CS:GO knife skin. The Factory New model is absolutely terrifying but it’s also elegant in its design.

This skin can be found in the Operation Breakout Weapon Case. Just don’t expect to open one on your first try.

If you want to buy a Crimson Web skin but can’t afford the butterfly version, you can opt for the karambit version. Its price is somewhere between $500 and $4000.

5. Flip Knife | Fade

This is one of the cheaper knife skins, and it’s a Fade. The visuals are stunning, and you’re only compromising on the knife type if you can call that a compromise. CS:GO players tend to prefer the karambits and butterflies over the other types of knives. But if you don’t care about this aspect, this skin will more than please you. And it costs only $500.

This skin can be found in 11 containers, which means that the odds of obtaining it via the case opening method are a bit higher.
