Classic Knife | Slaughter was added to the game on October 18, 2019, as part of the CS20 Case, which was released alongside the "Cache and Release" update.
The blade of the knife is adorned with an abstract pattern made with aluminum and chrome paints and coated with red translucent paint. The handle and the guard remain unpainted.
Float Value of Classic Knife | Slaughter ranges from 0.00 to 0.26, which makes the skin available only in Factory New, Minimal Wear and Field-Tested condition. Small scratches and abrasions are present along the cutting edge and on the tip of the knife already in Factory New condition. At levels of wear close to the maximum, the paint layer on the wavy pattern along the cutting edge is almost completely peeled, small abrasions are present on the spine.
The location and shapes of the pattern elements depend on the pattern index. Pattern variations with shapes resembling a diamond (or a diamond and a heart) are considered to be the rarest and the most expensive ones. The second-rarest pattern variations contain only a shape resembling a heart. Patterns with shapes resembling a dogbone or an angel are less rare and considered to be the most common ones.
The quality of Classic Knife | Slaughter is Covert. In some pattern variations, the elements of the abstract pattern create different shapes resembling a heart, a diamond, an angel, etc. The skin has a StatTrak option and belongs to the "Slaughter" series.
Classic Knife | Slaughter became popular after the release and remains in demand today.
