Falchion did not become a “cult”
The Falchion knife has turned out in some way a rethinking of real weapons. The fact is that such a thing in the real world is not a folding knife, but a short sword with one-sided sharpening. A modern analog of falshion is the machete. Needless to say, the instances presented in CS:GO are far from this cult weapon of brutal partisans?
However, the Falchion knife is far from the status of a cult weapon among the players. The cost of skins for it is far from the values of the prices for the butterfly, kerambit or Bayonet-knife M9. If the price or hype does not play a decisive role, then Falchion is an excellent candidate for purchase. Good appearance, relatively low price and beautiful animations are strong arguments in his favor.
Bright long-playing skins
When adding skins to CS:GO, the development team hoped that camouflage and abrasion would add seriousness to the players and become popular. Valve employees have never been so wrong, except for the release of Artifact. In practice, the result was the opposite – everyone liked bright and rare skins, even toxic AWP | Lightning strike.
Skins from the Falchion Case are either bright, or are full of details, or both. Due to this, they are still popular. AWP | Hyper Beast, AK-47 | Aquamarine revenge, SG 553 | Cyrex – these and other skins from the case not only retain their value, but even grow in price!
The cost of the already mentioned AK, for example, has doubled over the past 2 years. At the same time, the cost of the case itself repeats the dynamics and now for one case, you will have to pay about 15 cents.
Interestingly, in the Falchion Case there are no skins made in the technique that imitates real camouflage. More or less, only UMP-45 | Riot and Nova | Ranger. These are the two cheapest skins in the case.
Another interesting feature of the Falchion Case is its relatively large repetition of patterns. The reason for this is the scandal surrounding the M4A4 | Howl. After litigation with copyright infringement, Valve has become much more cautious about choosing skins and now prefers to work with trusted artists.
Because of this, there are five skins in the case, the design or theme of which repeats existing skins. This list includes: AWP | Hyper Beast, SG 553 | Cyrex, P90 | Elite Build, MP9 | Ruby Poison Dart and USP-S | Torque.
The Falchion Case did a great job of aging. Those who decided to buy skins from it (especially SG 553 | Cyrex) made the right choice. They are still growing in price and are a good investment.
