The most important traits for CSGO skins are their esthetics and rarity, and the more of these qualities they possess, the bigger the price. Today we present you with the top 10 most expensive CSGO skins that probably everyone would love to see in their Steam inventory.

The cheapest skin on our list is StatTrak Tiger Tooth Butterfly Knife – FN, a weapon that can add a note of sophistication to your game. The tiger stripe design with golden touch is perfect for causing mayhem and humiliation to your opponents.
The price of $2500 is a pretty big investment for regular CSGO players, but the sole appearance of this blade makes it worth every cent. There are some cases of StatTrak Tiger Tooth Butterfly Knife – FN being listed for a lot cheaper price, so checking multiple different marketplaces might be a good idea.
If you own StatTrak Tiger Tooth Butterfly Knife – FN, selling it may be one tough decision, but the money you would get could buy you a brand new PC setup with professional gaming equipment.
Despite being unaffordable for many CSGO players out there, there’s no debating about one thing – nobody would mind having StatTrak Tiger Tooth Butterfly Knife – FN listed in their inventory.
AK-47 Wild Lotus – FN ($4000)
The number nine on our list does not require a special introduction – it is one of the most popular models out there, the AK-47 Wild Lotus. This beautiful skin getting featured on this list is no surprise since AK-47s are leading the skin market in terms of price, alongside with AWPs and knives.
What makes AK-47 Wild Lotus unique is that its designers had the courage of mixing the military green with bloom and floral patterns. The lotus flower covering the gun offers a certain kind of refreshment compared to some dull AK-47 skins, making Wild Lotus a unique piece to own.
The price of AK-47 Wild Lotus is somewhere around $4000, and although it used to fluctuate in the past, it has been stable for some time now and there are no strong indicators that it might change. In case you think $4000 is too much for skin like this, you will be stunned to hear that some AK-47 Wild Lotuses have exceeded the price of $10,000, simply by adding rare stickers to the gun’s base.
StatTrak M4A4 Howl ($8,000)
The Huntsman M4A4 Howl with StatTrak is a classic CSGO skin from the famous Huntsman series. It may be a gun with eye-catching blazing fire and a fire-breathing beast, but that isn't the only reason why it's so special. It started off as a rather uncommon skin, but following an intellectual property scandal, it became a CSGO legend.
Nobody can deny that its price is a huge investment no matter how deep your pockets might be, but on the other hand it is one of the rarest CSGO pieces out there, so some analysts are surprised that it’s not even more expensive than it is. In the current market, players that still have this renowned skin can get $8,000 or more.
Crimson Kimono Specialist Gloves ($10,000)
The Hydra Collection's Crimson Kimono Specialist Gloves can sell for as much as $10,000 on the skin market. They're black gloves with a red striped cloth on them. Despite the fact that they come on the market frequently, Factory New examples are quite rare.
Though not all of these gloves can go for $10,000, according to the best CSGO platforms out there, they have never been bought for a price less than $5,698.19 in this condition.
"Start seeing red," states the flavor text for the Crimson Kimono Specialist Gloves, referring to the gloves' red diamond fabric design as well as its popularity among knife-wielding stealth gamers. In November of 2016, they were introduced in the CSGO catalog.

StatTrak Bayonet Crimson Web ($11,000)
At the advent of CSGO skins, the M9 bayonet received its own skin variant. The StatTrak Bayonet Crimson Web knife's terrifying blood-red blade immediately became one of the most wanted of all weapons, boasting not only the Covert weapon rating but also all the perks of quality and uniqueness that the StatTrak technology offers.
The Bayonet Crimson Web skin now sells for $11,000 in factory new condition. The red web designs are created in random unique combinations on each skin to add to the skin's attractiveness.
Karambit Case Hardened Knife – Blue Gem ($15,000)
The Case of the Karambit Hardened knife is a sought, one-of-a-kind skin in CSGO, available in every color, state, and variety. When taking the Blue Gem into consideration, which spawns at a rate of less than 1% in an Arms Deal Chest, the value skyrockets.
Factory fresh variants of this piece have been widely sought after since 2013, especially because each skin's pattern is unique. Blue Gem variations in good shape can fetch up to $15,000 on the market.
King Snake Driver Gloves ($20,000)
The King Snake Driver Gloves were launched as part of the Clutch Series in 2018. To say they were sought after would be an understatement. When offered in factory new condition, these gloves with the tantalizing "extraordinary" item rating can fetch up to $20,000.
This makes them the most expensive gloves in the CSGO universe, but their worth every penny considering how cool they make you look as you blow up the heads of the opponent team members.
Pandora’s Box Sport Gloves ($25,000)
The Pandora's Box Sport Gloves are not only one of the coolest skins in the CSGO world, but they are also tied for the rarest glove-skin in the game. This skin can cost hundreds of dollars even in used condition. On the open market, it can bring up to $25,000 in factory new condition.
With their unusual purple texture and reinforced athletic glove pattern, these have been a hit since 2016. The purple mesh with the black overlay would be ideal for nervous bomb-placing professionals since they’re just exploding with coolness.
Souvenir AWP Dragon Lore ($30,000)
The number two on our list is a sniper rifle, making it one of the most costly skins in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. You used to be able to get this weapon in a Cobblestone case by observing other people compete on the map that it was affiliated with. A Souvenir AWP Dragon Lore skin had a 1/250,000 chance of appearing, and even then, the condition might change at any time.
Cobblestone is no more available in pro circuits, thus you won't be able to get this piece from the map's boxes. To put it another way, you can't open it. Because this skin can only be purchased and traded on the marketplace, it now sells for roughly $30,000 in factory new state.
StatTrak Case Hardened AK-47 ($150,000)
The StatTrak Case Hardened Ak-47 is the most costly CSGO skin. This piece was one of the Arms Deal Collection skins, and it's distinguished by its gleaming blue casing, which adds to the skin's rarity. As previously indicated in this list, StatTrak technology monitors the kills of each weapon between owners. It has the ability to turn even the most worn-out pistol into the most precious skin in CSGO.
The gun came with four Titans Katowice 2014 stickers, each of which was worth a lot of money and contributed to the rifle's eventual selling price of $150,000 on Steam.
