This skeletonized-tang knife has been taped at the handle for improved grip. The hole allows a finger to be threaded through for stability and safety.
―Official description

The Skeleton Knife is a cosmetic knife available to players in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and is an extremely rare item received from opening a Shattered Web Case. The Skeleton Knife was released as part of the Operation Shattered Web update.


The Skeleton Knife is cosmetic and shares the same performance as the default knife. It is an extremely rare item and can only be found in a Shattered Web Case at a low chance.


  • The Skeleton Knife is modeled after the Renegade Tactical Steel G4 Stryker throwing knife. The three fuller indents are slightly visible under the tape.
  • There's a 50/50 chance that when the players draws this knife, they will twirl it around their hand.
    • In a similar stride, there's a small chance with the inspect animation the player will put their finger in the gap between the blade and the handle and spin it around for however long the player holds their inspect key until they let go, in which case the animation will stop and the agent will go back to the idle animation.
