CS:GO is infamous for its pricey knife skins, such as the Karambit skin (pattern 387) whose owner recently turned down an offer of $1.5 million. But, luckily, not all knives are as expensive and you can get your hands on a knife skin like the butterfly knife for a reasonable price.

Buy From the Steam Marketplace

There are a few marketplaces in which you can find yourself a shiny new blade, the easiest being Steam. Simply log in to your account, add funds to your Steam Wallet, and click on "advanced options" underneath the search bar to narrow down your search to CS:GO items. After purchasing, your item will be placed on hold temporarily while Steam clears the transaction.

Knives on the Steam marketplace are often more expensive than on 3rd party websites, so consider checking those other sites out and doing some price comparisons.

Check Out Skinport

Skinport is the most used skin-trading site in the US and has many positive reviews with great pricing and trading rules. Skins reflect immediately and the profits can be put straight into your bank account as real cash, making the site super popular for those looking to make some real profit in trading skins. Items sold here are often much cheaper and sometimes feature discount sales.

All you have to do is head over to, log in with your Steam account, and buy, sell, or trade at your leisure.

Butterfly knife prices start at around $400, but you can trade up—start with a $50 knife and continue climbing toward the top knives on the market.
