Cheap CS:GO knives are cosmetic items that are in high demand among the regular userbase. As the majority of the players do not have a lot of money to splurge on purchasing virtual items, knife skins are something that automatically ranks low on their CS:GO cosmetic wish list, mainly due to them being slightly more expensive than most weapon skins in the game.

Obviously, the list below will not feature any top-tier knife skins, but it is a well-curated guide using which you can get a great knife for a good deal.
Here is a list of the cheapest CS:GO knives that you can purchase in 2021, that does not dent your wallet too hard and gives you a great knife that has literally no effect on your gameplay.
5 best cheapest CS:GO knife skins in 2021
The below-mentioned knives are some of the best cheap CS:GO knives that are currently available on the market. We will mostly be mentioning the price of the knife as per the ‘Steam Community Market’, but one can always visit a trusted third-party website to grab the items at an even lower price.
Apart from that, the list will contain a variety of knives and it might not necessarily mean that they are the cheapest on the market, because our objective is to find value for money. The skins should be attractive and look good in-game, while also being cheap.
Navaja Knife | Urban Masked
‘Navaja Knife’ are some of the cheapest CS:GO knives in the game and that is because their design is simple. Overall the skins for these knives offer a bit less when compared to some of the other expensive ones. This knife style was added to CS:GO in August 2018 and mostly offer multiple entry-level knife skin variants, one of the best among those are ‘Urban Masked - Field Tested’.
This simple knife skin is for those that like a single-tone colour variant on their knife, without any grand textures or designs of any kind. Its minimalistic appearance is what makes it stand out as a classy knife despite having a Navaja-style imprint on it. The ‘Navaja Knife | Urban Masked - FT’ is available for around $65-70 USD on the Steam Community Market, but if you are lucky you can get it for slightly less than $60 also.
Shadow Daggers | Scorched
‘Shadow Daggers’ have lost their value by a lot since their initial release in 2015. They used to be quite rare but more players have sold them over the years, but with fewer buyers left to purchase them now, these unique knives are a great grab. The Shadow Daggers knife style is one of the most unique in CS:GO, as players grab a small melee weapon in each of their hands.
‘Scorched - Field Tested’ is a great grab for around $70-75 USD on the Steam Market, offering a great shade of silver and black that blends well together and does not erratically stand out as something ‘low quality’. This can be a great addition for anyone looking to treat them to a value for money knife skin.
Navaja Knife | Scorched
The ‘Navaja Knife | Scorched - Field Tested’ is another Navaja-style knife that looks absolutely stunning in an overall black shade. It looks slick and shiny while being very minimalistic and classy in its own way. The hilt of the knife has a good shade and though the blade is a bit roughed up, it is quite a steal for users as they can grab it for around $65-72 USD on the Steam Market.
Falchion Knife | Safari Mesh
The ‘Falchion Knife’ is a modern recreation of a sword, this knife does have a great overall design with a small curved edge and kind of a long handle. The falchion style is a great small covert melee weapon that looks great especially in the ‘Safari Mesh - Field Tested’ design.
Despite the low-grade texture, the design looks really good on the knife which has a printed hilt that is olive in colour and a dark greenish blade. The price of this knife skin varies by almost $10-12 USD on the Steam Market, and you can get it for anywhere between $70-82 USD, which is quite a steal for skin this good.
Gut Knife | Freehand
The ‘Gut Knife’ are massive in shape and size which has a hook design at the tip of the knife, which is also what makes them stand out from the rest. Despite being cheap this knife-style is not a hit amongst the general userbase, as they generally tend to be quite ugly.
The ‘Freehand - Field Tested’ has a very unique style and design on the blade part of the knife, and even the FT texture on it looks really attractive, giving them a good blend of classic and a modern feel. Players can grab it for anywhere between $80-85 USD on the Steam Market, and even more pocket friendly on external websites.
These are 5 of the best cheapest CS:GO knives that are currently available on the Steam Community Market. Players who are looking for some cheap knife skins that look good as well, and are absolute value for money can go ahead and purchase any one of them.
