Huntsman Knife | Fade was added to the game on July 1, 2014, alongside “The Hunt Begins” update. The skin is available in The Huntsman Weapon Case.
The blade of the knife is chromed and coated with translucent paints creating gradient transitions. The pattern is made in various shades of purple, pink and yellow. The color ratio depends on the pattern index. The handle remains unpainted.
Float Value of the skin ranges from 0.00 to 0.08, which makes Huntsman Knife | Fade available only in Factory New and Minimal Wear condition. Small abrasions are already present on the spine and along the cutting edge in Factory New condition. At levels of wear close to the maximum, the number and size of abrasions increase.
The pattern index affects the color ratio of the skin. Huntsman Knife | Fade with a maximum amount of purple on the tip of the blade (“100% Fade” or “Full Fade”) is considered to be the most valuable pattern variation. The less valuable pattern variations where the amount of purple decreases are titled “99% Fade” (or “fake Full Fade”) and “98% Fade”.
The quality of Huntsman Knife | Fade is Covert. The skin has a StatTrak option and belongs to the "Fade" series.
The skin became very popular after the release and remains in demand today.
