Knives are an essential part of CS:GO. You’ll need to equip your knife to boost your movement speed to run faster. There will also be rare scenarios where you’ll need to pull your knife versus an enemy after running out of bullets.

In both scenarios, your knife will be on full display. This means you’ll get to show off the knife skin you’re using to spectators. Considering how expensive knife skins can be, you may want to test them before purchasing them from Steam’s Community Market.
