Talon Knife | Slaughter was added to the game on August 2, 2016, alongside "A New Horizon" update. The skin is available in cases “Horizon” and “Danger Zone”.
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 remains unpainted.
Effect of float
Float Value of the skin ranges from 0.00 to 0.26, which makes Talon 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 central edges of the blade and on the spine. At Float Values close to the maximum, the size of abrasions increases.
The quality of Talon 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.
Talon Knife | Slaughter was very popular after the release, but today its popularity has decreased.
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 zebra stripes are less rare and considered to be the most common ones.
