Most Expensive Knives in CSGO

Most Expensive Knives in CSGO

Overview

People generally know that CSGO knives can cost you a lot of money. However, did you know that these items can be worth tens of thousands of dollars?

Everyone likes their expensive branded clothing, but for us Counter Strike players, it’s the incredible knife skins in this game. Valve has done an amazing job in constantly updating the game with new, premium looking knives, but did you ever think that some knife skins would be more expensive than cars? Well, that’s the world we’re living in now, and you’ll be surprised when you see the price tags on some of these knives. 

Karambit Case Hardened #1 Pattern | $1,200,000+

The most expensive knife skin, which is also the most expensive Counter Strike Global Offensive skin in history, is the Number 1 Karambit Case Hardened skin with the Blue Gem pattern

Karambit Case Hardened #1 Pattern | $1,200,000+

The Karambit Case Hardened skins usually go for less than a thousand dollars, but there’s something extremely special about this particular knife. It’s the fact that this knife has the Blue Gem pattern. Blue Gem patterns in Case Hardened Skins make one side of a knife completely ocean blue, which makes the skin have a premium look to it.

The most expensive CSGO knife skin was offered $1,200,000 straight up, but the owner of the knife said it was too low! The skin trading community is now wondering if this particular Karambit Case Hardened skin could really be worth more than a good looking house.

StatTrak Butterfly Knife Gamma Doppler Emerald | $25,000

Next up on the list is the StatTrak Butterfly Knife Gamma Doppler, in Emerald phase. This particular knife skin is currently the most expensive knife skins that doesn’t require any absurdly lucky patterns such as the Karambit Case Hardened Blue Gem covered above.

Butterfly Knife Gamma Doppler Emerald

The Gamma Doppler has a total of five different phases, with the Emerald one being the best-looking one. As the name suggests, the phase provides the knife with an emerald-colored look. The color makes the skin bright, but has the balance of making sure that it’s not too candy coated. 

The Butterfly Knife weapon skins, having the coolest inspect animation and paired up with one of the rarest skin types in the game, creates this crazy $25,000 price tag. Definitely a big upgrade from the Butterfly Knife Marble Fade.

StatTrak Butterfly Knife Doppler Sapphire | $19,700

The StatTrak Butterfly Knife Doppler Sapphire closely follows the footsteps of the Emerald version, as similarly, they both feature the color of extremely rare gemstones

Butterfly Knife Doppler Sapphire

The Doppler lineup has a total of seven phases, with the Sapphire phase being the most expensive one. With blue being one of the more popular colors, the Sapphire easily does the job of giving the Butterfly Knife a prestigious look to it.

This particular knife is selling for right around $19,700, but you can get regular copies of this knife with different phases for cheaper prices. If you’re looking for a cheaper alternative for the Butterfly Knife, check out the Butterfly Knife Marble Fade for a similar experience.

StatTrak Karambit Crimson Web | $19,400

The most expensive Karambit knife skin, apart from the Blue Gem, is the StatTrak Karambit Crimson Web in Factory New condition. 

StatTrak Karambit Crimson Web

The Crimson Web knife skins feature a crimson, blood-red color scheme that perfectly suits the curved blade of the knife imitating the claw of an animal. With the Karambit knives being one of the more popular types of knife, the Karambit Crimson Web would obviously reach an incredibly high price point.

This particular knife is going for $19,400, but the knife can reach even higher prices with the correct pattern. A “spider web pattern” would fetch you an extra $10,000 if you find the right buyer.

StatTrak M9 Bayonet Crimson Web | $18,600

Right behind the Karambit Crimson Web is the StatTrak M9 Bayonet Crimson Web, which will still cost around the price of an actual car. 

StatTrak M9 Bayonet Crimson Web | $18,600

The Crimson Web skin is a very popular choice of skin, and the M9 Bayonet pairs up really well with it. The surface area of the M9 Bayonet is larger than most other knives, so the  beauty of the Crimson Web skin can really be shown to its full potential.

The M9 Bayonet Crimson Web stands right below the $19,000 mark. The thing that makes this skin more special is that there aren’t that many of them that are for sale, so getting your hands on an M9 Bayonet Crimson Web can make it super special.

StatTrak M9 Bayonet Gamma Doppler Emerald | $18,700

Another one of the most expensive knife skins is part of the Emerald lineup. The StatTrak M9 Bayonet Gamma Doppler Emerald joins the list.

The M9 Gamma Doppler looks like a large blade that was crafted using Emeralds, giving the knife such an expensive look. The metallic paint and the instances of translucent wavy lines just make this knife eye candy at this point.

A regular StatTrak M9 Bayonet Gamma Doppler goes for just under a thousand dollars in the market. So the Emerald pattern increases its value by 1800% and puts the price tag at a whopping $18,700!

StatTrak Skeleton Knife Crimson Web | $16,800

The Skeleton Knife is one of the newer additions to the CSGO knives lineup, and has quickly gotten the attention of many fans. As a result, the StatTrak Skeleton Knife Crimson Web fetches an incredibly high price and makes it to the list.

The Skeleton Knife has a really cool pull-out animation, and the small and compact design matches the theme of the Crimson Web. It looks like a knife that you’d bring hunting and the blood-red color of the knife is just extremely fitting.

This Skeleton Knife is currently going for $16,800, but keep in mind that the knife is relatively new. We can expect to see the price start to shift when everything settles down.

StatTrak Karambit Doppler Sapphire | $15,400

It is surprising that the StatTrak Karambit Doppler Sapphire is only 8th on this list, because this knife used to be within the top three most expensive knives in the game. However, this is a good sign that Valve has been releasing more awesome new expensive knife skins for us to use!

Karambit Doppler Sapphire

The Karambit Doppler Sapphire features a full blue look on the entire curved blade. The azure vibe that the Sapphire phase gives to the skin just simply screams premium. It’s pretty understandable why the Sapphire used to be one of the most desired and most expensive CSGO knife skins for any Counter Strike player.

The Karambit Doppler Sapphire has slightly dropped in price over the years, and is now standing strong at $15,400.

StatTrak M9 Bayonet Doppler Sapphire | $15,000

Just like the Crimson Webs, the StatTrak M9 Bayonet Doppler Sapphire tails the Karambit and is the 9th most expensive skin on this list.

This knife was released in the Full Spectrum update all the way back in 2015, and caused a huge craze in the CSGO community. The Sapphire phase, which is one of the rarest phases alongside the Ruby, just fits this knife perfectly and gives off a premium feeling.

Similar to the Karambit Sapphire, the M9 Doppler Sapphire sits at a comfortable $15,000, with its price dropping over the years.

StatTrak Talon Knife Crimson Web | $14,800

We can really see the power of the Crimson Web, as this is the fourth Crimson Web knife on the list. The StatTrak Talon Knife Crimson Web is the last knife to make it into the list.

Talon Knife Crimson Web

The Talon Knife is most known to be a substitute to the Karambit, as both of the two knives feature a curved blade. However, the knife does have a pretty unique pull-out animation that helps it stand out. The Crimson Web looks amazing on this skin, especially with the skin reaching all the way to the ring of the knife.

The Talon Knife Crimson Web is the most expensive skin for this knife, and the price for it is currently $14,800, making it one of the most expensive CSGO knife skins in the game. However, prices for this rare knife skin may fluctuate if new knives come out.

There you have it! These are the most expensive Counter Strike knives on the marketplace right now, and will likely last for many years to come. Would you spend money on any of these expensive knives, and do you think a million dollars is worth the most expensive CSGO knife?
