CS2 | All knife skins

Many Counter-Strike enthusiasts emphasize the significance of a well-executed knife kill over gunplay. Whether it’s a precise strike with an AK, a spray with an M4, or a takedown with an AWP, the rare knife kill holds a special place.

Why not showcase your prowess with the knife while stealthily eliminating enemies from behind? The knife, being prominently visible as players navigate with it before switching to their primary weapon, offers an opportunity for display.

The Arms Deal update of 2013 revolutionized Counter-Strike by introducing distinctive and intricate knife finishes, featuring blades of various shapes and colors. With the enhanced lighting and shadows in CS2, these knives appear even more stunning.

Here’s a comprehensive list of every knife skin available in CS2, ranging from the default knife to those valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars.
