A knife in CS:GO is a mandatory type of weapon. Every player has it, and it is important to be able to use it. However, not all knives are the same. There are some that can emphasize a player’s personality, authority, and skill, and one of these is the Karambit | Lore.
Which Skin is This?
The Lore is one of the most expensive Karambit knife skins. The blade surface and knife ring have been coated with gold paint with various ripple and tie patterns. The knife handle is painted dark green.
It is also worth paying attention to the quality difference. With the Well-Worn exterior there are minor surface abrasions. They really spoil the appearance of the skin, but not critically so. The StatTrak feature is only available in Well-Worn and Battle-Scarred skins.
For comparison, the Battle-Scarred knife looks like this:
The knife costs:
- $1,400 for Factory New;
- From $590 for Field-Tested;
- From $400 for Battle-Scarred.
From the best to lowest quality exterior, the price decreases markedly.
The knife has a curved blade resembling a tiger’s fang. It was created especially for Malaysian and Indonesian martial art, which is called silat.
The knife is used in a specific way: it is held with a reverse grip, so the index finger is inserted into the ring of the knife handle.
How Does a Weapon’s Condition Affect its Value?
To start trading knives, you need to understand certain specifics of trading this type of weapon. Naturally, a trader wants to earn on the knives, and not store them or use them until the maximum deterioration in quality.
In this case, it is necessary to monitor the price changes, and increase or decrease the market value of the object. It is important to understand that knives are not a mass type of weapon, therefore it will not be possible to buy them in large volumes and sell them in the same volumes.
The main parameters that affect the price of a knife are its condition and integrity. The lower the quality of the weapon, the lower its market value. After all, not only its condition is deteriorating, but also the knife’s drawing and coloring.
Another important component that affects the skin’s price is its rarity. The older it is, the more it can cost. Therefore, experienced players are constantly on the lookout for rare skins, realizing that the presence of a rare skin can make good profit.
There are specialized platforms that help the user with the purchase and further sale of the skin. The person does not have to look for a buyer himself. Certain systems can sell the skin at the declared price and transfer money to a personal wallet. However, here the user may encounter some nuances.
For example, if using Steam, then money can only be spent within the program itself. If you use the services of specialized platforms, for example DMarket, then you can not only sell the knife but also make a profit from it. It is important to choose a convenient way to withdraw funds.
