CS:GO has a lot of gorgeous skins, but many of the best ones are far too pricey, so here are the 7 best knives under 200 dollars CS:GO has at the moment, as of August 2018. These skins will be between $101-$200, as we have already looked at the 11 best knives under $100.
1. Bayonet Doppler – Factory New
You can choose whatever phase you look the most, but the Phase 4 with the blue and the black is a gorgeous knife and one of the sweetest deals you can get for under 200 dollars in CS:GO. By getting the normal Bayonet you can get the factory new version for a cheap price, which is not possible on a more expensive knife like the M9. This is definitely one of the best CS:GO knives under 200 dollars can buy you.
2. Flip Knife Lore – Field Tested
One of the new knife skins in the game is the Lore series, one of the most stunning visuals on a knife there is making it a very pricey option. The Flip Knife Lore field tested is the best option to get the best looking Lore knife for under $200 in CS:GO, as you get a nice long blade giving you a lot of the pattern visible on your screen.
3. M9 Bayonet Night – Minimal Wear
Jet black and demanding respect, the M9 Bayonet Night is one of the coolest looking skins in CS:GO period, never mind a $200 price limit. The M9 is widely regarded as one of the finest knife finishes in the game, and a simplistic coloring of black on black compliments its shape to make this one of the best knives on this list.
4. Karambit Freehand – Factory New
One look at the Karambit Freehand factory new will tell you why it made this list. With a unique set of colors adorning the blade and the classic curved shape of the karambit, you really are getting a great CS:GO knife for under $200 with this beauty. Sporting an almost hypnotic pattern, you’ll find it hard to keep your eyes off this gorgeous skin when in-game.
5. Karambit Ultraviolet – Field Tested
Like the Butterfly Knife, the Karambit is a knife variation that looks sick when being wielded or taken out, or inspected for that matter. Add some business-like style to the knife with the simple Ultraviolet skin, providing for a killer look in a great condition. As far as CS:GO knives under 200 dollars go, the Ultraviolet is one of the best skins you can put on the Karambit.
6. M9 Bayonet Autotronic – Field Tested
What makes the M9 Bayonet such a good knife is that despite only being field tested the skin still looks incredibly good condition. This is possibly because of the Autotronic finish, but whatever it is we won’t complain. You definitely can’t miss this chance to get a knife as nice looking as this for under 200 dollars.
7. Bowie Knife Ultraviolet – Minimal Wear
The shape of the Bowie Knife works really well for the Ultraviolet skin pattern, with a large proportion of the skin being covered in the clean black finish with just a few spots of violet to contrast brilliantly with the dark tones on the rest of the skin. Plus, the bowie knife doesn’t get a whole lot of us in CS:GO, so you’re likely to be the only one on your team with this knife 99% of the time, and that’s always a good thing.
