What Are Knife Skins in CS:GO?
Knife skins are cosmetic items that make your knife stand out while you play Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. At this point, there are 19 different types of knives in the game, each with different skins. These knives are:
- Nomad Knife
- Skeleton Knife
- Survival Knife
- Paracord Knife
- Classic Knife
- Bowie Knife
- Butterfly Knife
- Falchion Knife
- Gut Knife
- Huntsman Knife
- M9 Bayonet
- Navaja Knife
- Shadow Daggers
- Stiletto Knife
- Talon Knife
- Ursus Knife
Each of these knives listed above have their own series of skins to share with other knives, but there are some themes that are meant for one type of knife. Remember that a knife skin (just like any other item in CS:GO) does not change its stats, only its visual appearance. If you have a knife skin and you want to sell your CS:GO skins, you can use cash-out sites to do so. By the way, we know from personal experience that it’s much better to play with a cool knife like the M9 Bayonet or the classic Karambit, which looks phenomenal in-game!

Why Is the M9 Bayonet Doppler Sapphire So Expensive?
In addition to the fact that when opening a cases in CS:GO, the type of item is randomly drawn, and in the case of knives, among other things, it is also its float, which is a specific number that determines the accuracy of the pattern of the skin’s theme. The M9 Bayonet Doppler Sapphire has a float that is extremely rare, with a chance of hitting it less than 0.0001%, which is why it is one of the most expensive knives in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
