Why do people have arachnophobia? This knife must go a long way towards that phobia. This knife’s blade is completely red and plays host to a black spider’s Web.

This along with a slick black handle allows the design to come together beautifully. It pretty much looks like a venomous spider fang. What more could you ask for in a melee loadout?

Karambit | Doppler

This design is truly mesmerizing. It mixes a blend of deep purples and pinks together to give a design reminiscent of a solar system or a portal to another universe.

So if you want to send your enemies packing from the realm of the living to an alternate universe, doppler is the skin to go for.

Gut knife | Gamma Doppler Emerald

First Appeared: 15 June 2016

A variation on the doppler design from above that has a completely different feel and aesthetic. The emerald green metallic finish of the blade, coupled with the light tones of the wooden handle all come together to create a weapon that looks almost elven.

So if you want to bring a bit of elf culture to the conflict zone of Dust2. Then doppler is our top pick.

KARAMBIT | Gamma Doppler

So what do you get it if you combine the last two entries? Gamma doppler of course. This skin takes aspects of the last two doppler variants and combines them to give a new design. This one with a finish that makes it look though the blade has been dipped in nuclear waste.

Either that or you could perceive it as an ominous ethereal fog. Either way, all the more reason to equip this one to your melee load out.

M9 BAYONET | Lore

Lore is a design that has it’s roots firmly in the Celtic era of folklore, hence the name. With Celtic symbols embroidered on the golden, shimmering blade. Plus a green handle that looks rather similar to a frag grenade.

It’s very clear that this one is a not so subtle not to Celtic and Irish heritage. So if you have any Irish blood yourself, why not wear this one as a badge of pride.

TALON KNIFE | Marble Fade

The TALON KNIFE | Marble Fade was added to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on the 13 March 2019.

Description: The blade is made of many colors, but soon it all looks red.

Cheapest Steam price: $812.71

First Appeared: 13 March 2019.

Fitting that the knife is named talon because this skin makes the blade look like it belongs to tropical parrot with a score to settle. With a mix of red, blue, purple and yellow. This blade just screams Piña coladas but with a hint of danger.

Though with the sandy coloured handle it won’t feel completely out of place when on the battlefield. Pick this one up if you like pina coladas and going out in the rain.

M9 BAYONET | Slaughter

First Appeared: 14 August 2013.

From a more jovial skin to one that just screams bloodlust. Slaughter’s design is essentially a camo pattern though in shades of red. So the only way you’re going to blend out of sight is in a bloodbath.

Though if you want to live your Rambo fantasy and deliver carnage, then this is exactly what you’ll be needing.
