Skins in CS:GO are a great way to customize the look of your player model and add a bit of color to the game. CS:GO Knives are the holy grail of skins, but their high price tag puts many people off buying one. Here are some of the best knives under 100 CS:GO can offer. You can get these from third party websites, which are usually cheaper than the Steam Market allowing you to get the best cheap CS:GO knives for that little bit cheaper.
1. Gut Knife Doppler – Factory New:
Looking for good CS:GO knives under $100 does, unfortunately, mean that to get the nice patterns in good condition you will probably have to go for a slightly less knife knife design, like the gut knife. The good news, though, is that for under 100 dollars you can get a factory new doppler design on the knife. That means the rich colors of the doppler will be fully visible, and on a knife with as wide a surface as the gut knife this means you get a really nice amount of color and design for a low price.
2. Falchion Knife Crimson Web – Field Tested:
One of the most highly revered kinds of knife you can get are the Crimson Web series. As long as they aren’t too worn, the red background with intertwining black webs looks stunning. The great thing about the Falchion Knife is the blade is very large, so you get a lot of the red and black web design on the knife. For under $100, the Falchion Crimson Web is a great shout for a good knife on a budget and certainly one of the best CS:GO knives under 100 dollars.
3. Flip Knife Freehand – Factory New:
The Freehand is one of the newer knife skins to be added to CS:GO, and its price has lowered to be affordable on a $100 budget on a flip knife, in factory new condition unbelievably. It’s pretty crazy that you can afford a Freehand design in factory new condition for under $100, and you’re sure to draw jealousy from teammates when the sleek and clean design is whipped out from the flip knife’s body.
4. Flip Knife Damascus Steel – Field Tested:
Flip Knives are cheap and simple knives, meaning you can find many variants of them for under $100. One of the nicest colour combinations is the Damascus Steel, contrasting the handle with a brilliant silver blade. It’s possibly one of the best knives under 100 dollars you can find in Counter-Strike. And $70 for a Damascus Steel knife is a bargain.
5. Huntsman Knife Stained – Minimal Wear:
There aren’t many knives in CS:GO that look quite as formidable as the huntsman knife with it’s long body and vicious edges, making this edgily-styled knife one for someone looking to build an intimidating inventory. Huntsman Knife stained is an underrated skin in CS:GO, as the blotchiness of the skin design works well with the size of the Huntsman Knife to combine into a frightening image indeed.
6. Huntsman Knife Case Hardened – Field Tested:
Huntsman Knives are great skins when you’re shopping on a tight budget, and here’s another really stunning one that is as unique as it is gorgeous. Case hardened skins always look different from one knife to the other, so you’ll own a weapon almost unique in CS:GO. What’s more, it’s a combination you don’t often see in matchmaking which is great, as let’s be honest, no one wants to follow the crowd.
7. Shadow Daggers Tiger Tooth – Factory New:
The Shadow Daggers had a rough time when they released, being called butt plugs as frequently as their actual name. Despite that, though, some really nice skin combinations exist with these daggers. One of these is the tiger tooth factory new, and astonishingly you can get this skin for under $100. The gold and black combine together blissfully in factory new versions of tiger tooth knives, and on the shadow daggers will be one of, if not the only, way to get a factory new tiger tooth knife when looking for skins under $100.
8. Bayonet Urban Masked – Minimal Wear:
Budget knives in CS:GO often come in the form of less-used skins, and this one does just that. While the urban masked isn’t often regarded as a top quality finish to a knife, when it’s in good condition, like minimal wear level, it really does look very clean and a nice addition to any inventory. Combine that with the brilliant animation from taking a bayonet out and how menacing the knife looks once drawn and you really have a winning combination from such a cheap knife.
9. M9 Bayonet Forest DDPAT – Minimal Wear:
With a green-tinted handle to match the woodland patterns flowing down the knife’s blade, the M9 Forest DDPAT is a severely underrated skin and honestly one of the best knives you can find in CS:GO for under 100 dollars. In a condition as good as minimal wear this knife looks clean, meaning this knife can go toe-to-toe with much more expensive looking weapons for how great it looks.
10. M9 Bayonet Ultraviolet – Battle Scarred:
Astonishingly there are two nice-looking M9 skins that you can buy for under $100, the second of them being the battle scarred Ultraviolet. In its battle scarred state, you get almost a Vanilla skin which would look cool in itself, but also with slight purple lines over the knife.
11. Bowie Knife Blue Steel – Field Tested
One of the newer knives coming into the game and that has got a lot of use in 2018, the Bowie Knife looks powerful and sturdy in the hands, similarly to the M9 Bayonet and the Huntsman Knife. This one is lingers comfortably under that 100 dollar threshold, but its looks deserve the price. This weapon looks clean, with the blue of the blade and the black of the handle contrasting pleasantly, making you look awesome in-game.
These prices were accurate on BitSkins as of August 2018. Prices on third market skin websites can fluctuate depending on what the sellers set the price at.
