With CS2 out, a popular question has to be “what is the cheapest CS2 knife”? After all, who doesn’t want a blade to signify their status as a CS2 aficionado? So, if you’re looking for affordable knives, we’ve got you covered with this handy guide to the cheapest CS2 knives.

First thing’s first. In this article, we’ll show the cheapest knife models, and cheap finishes for each of them. After all, if we just went for particular skins, it’s very likely that Shadow Daggers and Navaja Knives or Rust Coats and Boreal Forests would populate most of it. That’s why: one knife, one knife skin for each of our top 7 cheapest CS2 knives.

Cheapest CS2 Knives: Top Picks

1. Navaja Knife | Boreal Forest ($80–$90)


We did warn you that the Navaja Knife would end up here, and this particular one costs under $100. It’s not the most beautiful or gripping, it’s debatable whether it’s nicer than the default knife, but hey, it’s surely more expensive.

So if you’re a camo lover who believes good things can come in small packages, this one is perfect for you and might be worth a tryin’.

2. Shadow Daggers | Rust Coat ($90–$110)


The Shadow Daggers have always been a choice where your mileage not only may, but definitely will vary. Some love the unique two-knife design, while others compare them to some NSFW toys.

The Rust Coat doubles down on that YMMV aspect of the skin, presenting a dirty look that may fit in perfectly in a post-apocalyptic skin collection. If your vibe is giving your enemies tetanus with every stab, these knives are for you.

3. Gut Knife | Safari Mesh ($91–$140)


If you were ever looking for a big knife that will be able to blend in relatively well when playing the likes of Mirage, Anubis, but also Ancient (and Aztec if it ever returns), the Safari Mesh is the perfect skin for you, offering a perfectly muddy color palette that will work well with just about any wall.

That said, the Gut Knife does have some cool animations, and if you don’t mind its bulky shape, it’s definitely the first of our “less memey” knife models on display.
