The Worst Knives in CSGO

There has been lots of craze and rising popularity surrounding the topic of CSGO knives. For CSGO players, having cool knives is pretty much the same as flexing a new watch or sneakers. However, there are really bad knives that have been released in CSGO’s long history. Check out some of the worst knives in CSGO below!

Navaja Knife

In our opinion, the Navaja Knife comes in as the worst knife to ever come out in CSGO. The blade of the Navaja Knife looks incredibly small and thin, meaning that the knife probably won’t do a good job of featuring the different CSGO knife skins.

Not to mention that the handle of the Navaja Knife is pretty much twice as large as the blade, and is made out of scrappy, wooden materials that just do not look appealing in the slightest.

All in all, the Navaja Knife is one of the cheapest knives in the game, so it may still be an option for players who are looking to get their first knife at an affordable price.

Shadow Daggers

The Shadow Daggers will make it as the second worst knife in all of Counter Strike. This knife is the only knife in CSGO that allows you to dual-wield, but something about the knife just seems off. Maybe it’s the questionable design that looks like it’s something you’d pleasure yourself with…

Shadow Daggers

Anyways, the Shadow Daggers didn’t have the cleanest introduction into the game, as on the early dates of the knife’s release, the pull-out animation of the Shadow Daggers would shake your crosshair if you’re using the left-handed viewmodel and result in players being nauseous.

Overall the Shadow Daggers just don’t do the job of being a premium knife, so we really recommend against buying it.

Gut Knife

The Gut Knife has been out in CSGO for the longest time, but that doesn’t make the Gut Knife special at all. For almost a decade now, the Gut Knife has been a punching bag for being the ugliest knife in CSGO, but with the release of new knives, the Gut Knife isn’t the worst one anymore.

Gut Knife

The only good things about the Gut Knife would probably be its low price point and the decent pull-out animation that comes with it. Other than that, the knife looks like something you’d find in your grandpa’s toolbox.

The handle on the Gut Knife looks cheap, and the blade doesn’t look too premium either. For those reasons, the Gut Knife is pretty high up on the tier list of worst knives.

Falchion Knife

To be quite frank, the Falchion Knife has a pretty boring design to it, but that’s not where the real problem lies. 

Falchion Knife

The Falchion Knife allows its handle to follow the design of skins, so you’re actually getting lots of surface area for your skin. The problem is that you’re barely able to see the handle when you are holding out your knife, since the Falchion Knife is too big. This means that you’re unable to see half of the skin unless you inspect it. 

However, the pull-out animation is decent, and the inspect animation is pretty cool, so it’s safe to say that the Falchion Knife isn’t the worst knife, but not a good one either.

Nomad Knife

Next up on the list is the Nomad Knife, which follows the concept of being a handy hunting knife that you’d bring out to the wilderness.

Nomad Knife

Now, the knife has a pretty slick pull-out animation, and the regular knife inspect animation which can never go wrong. The knife itself doesn’t look too shabby, but the issue is that the knife just looks pretty normal.

The Nomad Knife doesn’t have a bad design, but it doesn’t have an amazing one either. It’s just simply average and dull. There’s barely any hate for the Nomad Knife, but no love either, so that’s why we’ve decided to place it here.

Bowie Knife

Right off the bat, the Bowie Knife is already a pretty goofy name, and it’s pretty hard to take this knife seriously from the name alone. But, the Bowie Knife still has some good to it.

Bowie Knife

The main selling point of the Bowie Knife is that the blade of the knife is very large. However, the phrase “double-edged sword” perfectly fits this knife. A larger blade will mean that Bowie Knife displays more of the knife skin, but will also mean that the knife covers an unnecessarily large portion of your screen.

It comes down to whether you prefer the large blade or not, people either love the large blade, or they hate it.

Stiletto Knife

The Stiletto Knife is one of the newer additions to the CSGO knives lineup, but it has received mixed feedback on whether it’s a top tier knife or not. Unfortunately, there are a lot of haters for the Stiletto Knife.

Stiletto Knife

The main reason for the hate is mainly because the blade of the knife looks like a gigantic toothpick that someone like Bigfoot would use. The Stiletto Knife has a pretty high price tag attached to it, but you don’t really get much surface area to display your knife skin.

However, the knife does have a super clean pull-out animation and a decent inspect animation to boot.

Flip Knife

The last knife on this list will be the curved blade, the Flip Knife. Now, the Flip Knife isn’t a terrible knife by any means, but it’s not a great one either.

Flip Knife

The handle on the Flip Knife just looks low-quality and cheap. It really feels like you need a high-end knife skin for the Flip Knife, such as the Doppler and Lore for it to look premium. 

The Flip Knife itself has an okay pull-out animation, and is a great choice for minimalists as the knife is small and compact. This knife may be favored by lots of people, but we don’t think that it’s top ten material.
