The Best Knife Skins Under $200

Stabby stabby in style!

CS:GO has a lot of gorgeous skins, and some that you can even get for a reasonable price. Here are the 14 best knives under $200 in CS:GO at the moment, as of March 2019. We have already looked at the best knives under $100, so this article will contain skins between $101-$200.

1. Karambit Damascus Steel - Minimal Wear

We're not sure why someone with such lustrous skin printed on a knife as popular as the Karambit would put it on the market, but they have - a selfless act, it would seem. Jokes aside, this skin is genuinely phenomenal, it's simple, eye-catching, and under $200 - what more can you ask for?

2. Butterfly Knife Urban Masked - Field Tested

Oh boy, this is a beauty. If you're not a fan of extravagant, multi-color, confusing skin patterns, then the Urban Masked is the knife for you. This knife is the king of simplicity, and that's what makes it so eye catching. Speaking of eye catching, the price tag of this knife being under $200 caught our eye!

3. Huntsman Knife Marble Fade - Factory New

Want to catch other people’s eyes when you’re playing CS:GO? Then you need something outside of the box. The not-too-commonly-seen Huntsman Knife Marble Fade is the combination you’ve been waiting for without realizing it. Brilliantly colorful across the wide blade of the knife, this is something that would light up the room right before you light it up again with your one taps. A masterclass all over.

4. Bayonet Case Hardened - Minimal Wear

While slightly less intimidating than their brother in the M9 Bayonet, the benefit for the normal style Bayonet is that you can get some great skin finishes for even better prices. Take this one: a minimal wear case hardened knife for under $200, with the added benefit of being in one of the most classic knives in the game. That’s a bargain if we’ve ever seen one.

5. Karambit Night - Battle Scarred

Oh boy, this is a pretty knife. Fun fact: The battle scarred finish is actually our favorite variant of the night skin - the silver trimming on the edges of the blade mix really well with the skin's dark color. Another fun fact: the battle scarred variant of this knife is only $130!

6. Bayonet Doppler - Factory New

How can a skin be so convoluted, yet so elementary at the same time? One of two great questions that we asked ourselves when we found this skin. The other great question.. is that price tag correct? We have an answer to that one - yes, it is.

7. StatTrak™ Karambit Boreal Forest - Battle Scarred

Very few Boreal Forest skins are in the $100+ price bucket, but we can for-sure see why the Karambit Boreal Forest is priced above $100. It genuinely looks like something an avid jungle-dwelling survivalist would have stripped to their waistband. And, better yet, it's so rare that we had trouble finding an accurate price for it, so you're not going to see many other people carrying this blade about in-game.

8. Falchion Knife Marble Fade - Factory New

You’ll struggle to find a skin that combines as many colors as well and seamlessly as the Marble Fade series. In Factory New, they’re beautiful. And when you have the Marble Fade pattern on the top and the bottom of the knife, then vincemcmahon.gif because that’s just too much to handle.

9. M9 Bayonet Blue Steel - Factory New

The Blue Steel is a minimalist skin finish among the crazy colors and patterns that you’ll find in most other skins. That serves to make it uniquely awesome in its simplicity - something that the thuggish design of the M9 Bayonet only enhances. This is one for you if you don’t want to throw splashes of yellow and green all over your knife.

10. M9 Bayonet Freehand - Field Tested

The M9 Bayonet’s design is still one to this day that much of the CS:GO community favors. It has stood the test of time, remaining as strong in popularity now as it looks in your hand. The Freehand adds a dash of imaginative style to this bare-bones knife, causing a pleasant contrast that you won’t look away from.

11. Flip Knife Doppler - Factory New

You know you’re getting lucky when you find a Lore skin for well under $200. One for all our AWPers out there due to how swish the Flip Knife looks when you draw it after firing an AWP shot, you’ll be writing the lore of your own world with this magical skin.

12. M9 Bayonet Boreal Forest - Minimal Wear

If you were in a forest with this bad ass blade, people would think your hands are empty. Lucky for you, most CS:GO maps aren't forest-themed, so you're going to be noticed with this knife. Whilst you get the perks of owning an awesome looking M9 Bayonet, it comes with the downside of players asking in game 'how much was your knife' and 'nice knife bro', for as long as it's in your loadout - because let's face it, a knife like this is going to draw some attention.

13. StatTrak™ Falchion Knife Case Hardened - Minimal Wear

The bright steel of this knife’s handle coordinates brilliantly with the metallic colors that the Case Hardened series sports. Turn your graphics up to high when you inspect this baby, and let the colors dazzle you.

14. Karambit Bright Water - Field Tested

The fact that you can pick up a nice-looking Karambit for under $200 is reason enough to check this skin out. One of the priciest knife designs in CS:GO combined with a color that looks unexpectedly pleasant on a knife combines to make a sweet, sweet deal.

15. Butterfly Knife Forest DDPAT - Field Tested

Everyone has their favorite animation based purely on it’s animation when you withdraw it, and you’ll find for a lot of people it’s the Butterfly Knife. Pulling off the intricate twirling each time you withdraw your knife is hypnotic, and a big reason to consider any type of Butterfly Knife - this just happens to be one of the cheapest.

16. Bowie Knife Tiger Tooth- Factory New

If you’re picking up a Tiger Tooth knife in CS:GO, you best be going for a good condition skin. In Factory New and when you have the graphical settings in CS:GO set to a decent level, the luscious golds weaving their way between pitch black stripes - like you might see on a Tiger - will serve to instantly boost up how epic your inventory is. They say beauty is deadly, after all.

17. Bowie Knife Doppler - Factory New

The Bowie Knife has plenty of length on its blade, meaning the mesmerizing colors of the Doppler skin have plenty of room to impress your teammates, and create jealousy in your enemies when wielding this knife. Whether you favor the blue Dopplers or the red Dopplers, you are sure to find a stunning combination of the two colors to really add a layer of prestige to your inventory.
