The Falchion Knife is a cosmetic & shares the same performance as the default knife. It is a rare special (★) item that can be found in a Falchion Case, Spectrum Case, Spectrum 2 Case, or Operation Riptide Case.


  • The Falchion Knife has two inspection animations. The default animation involves the player spinning the knife on his palm and inspecting it. The second rare animation has the player balancing the knife vertically on his hand for a few seconds.
  • The Falchion Knife originally deployed faster than other knives, at .97 of a second as opposed to 1 second. This was left unseen for 2 years until it was finally fixed on April 20th, 2017.
  • The Falcion Knife in Chroma & Gamma finishes do not display their collection properly, displaying the Falchion Collection instead.
  • The Falchion Knife is pronounced as "fôlʹshən" though many make the mistake of calling it the "falcon" knife.
  • The Falchion Knife is modeled after the Espada (Large) by Cold Steel.
