Gut Knife | Slaughter was added to the game on August 14, 2013, alongside "The Arms Deal" update. The skin is available in 11 cases released in 2013-2015.
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 is made of wood and remains unpainted.
Float Value of the skin ranges from 0.00 to 0.26, which makes Gut Knife | Slaughter available only in Factory New, Minimal Wear and Field-Tested condition. Levels of wear can be determined by the size and number of abrasions, which start to appear on the corner of the blade close to the handle and on the spine. At Float Values close to the maximum, all edges of the blade have noticeable abrasions.
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 dog bone, a butterfly or a cat are less rare and considered to be the most common ones.
The quality of Gut Knife | Slaughter is Covert. In some pattern variations, the elements of the pattern create different shapes resembling a heart, a diamond, a dogbone, etc. The skin has a StatTrak option and belongs to the "Slaughter" series.
Gut Knife | Slaughter was very popular after the release, but today its popularity has decreased.
