Bowie Knives were released during the "Operation Wildfire Update", as an 'Exceedingly Rare Special Item'. Surprisingly enough, I have only seen 10 Bowie Knife fades when this guide was made, and was able to scrape a lot of info, just enough for a fade guide. This guide may be edited to suit better pictures once more are unboxed. Fades have different percentages, and it can increase your knife value depending on the fade percentage. Better fade percentages mean higher price value when trading.

I will be going over the fade percentages of the Bowie Knife.

75% Fade Percentage
Bowie Knives with the <75% Fade pattern will generally look like this.


You can distinguish a 75% Fade if the yellowish part only reaches the ridge of the last tooth.
80% Fade Percentage
Bowie Knives with the <80% Fade pattern will generally look like this.


You can distinguish a 80% Fade if the yellow part crosses the last tooth ridge, and if there is slightly more purple on the blade.
85% Fade Percentage
Bowie Knives with the <85% Fade pattern will generally look like this.


You can distinguish a 85% Fade if the yellow part reaches the handle, and if the purple is in the middle of the curved tip at the end.
90% Fade Percentage
Bowie Knives with the <90% Fade pattern will generally look like this.


You can distinguish a 90% Fade if the yellow part fully reaches the handle, and if the purple is all the way up the curved of the blade.
95% Fade Percentage
Bowie Knives with the <95% Fade pattern will generally look like this.


You can distinguish a 95% Fade if there are no gray spots on the knife's blade, and if the purple reaches way farther than a 90% one (above).
100% Fade Percentage
Bowie Knives with the >100% Fade pattern will generally look like this.


You can distinguish a 100% Fade if the yellow is significantly bright, and if the purple reaches all the way to the blunt tooth on the front of the knife.
Conclusion
Bowie Knife | Fades are rather large knives, and large knives would require huge patterns, which is why there was a 6th fade pattern, rather than the usual 4-5 patterns. This guide can be used as a reference to determine your fade percentage, although this may not be accurate (when this was posted).

And a last note-

Due to an incident that happened a lot of months ago, please do not take this guide and claim it as your own. I had to file an EULA report, that guide got taken down, and it's just not fun for anyone. You are more then welcome to translate the guide (although it seems unnecessary), but only if you give me credit for it. Or not, just don't claim you did the cropping and stuff (pro cropping skills take time)
Questions and Answers
answer these fam rn

Q: wtf how did u get these images there r only like 2 fade knifes in exsistent popular youtuber rechyyy and super
A: There are actually more than 2 knives, I inspected 10 of them, and managed to get sufficient info for a fade guide.

Q:This doesn't seem accurate enough. Why is this?
A: If you're questioning why a certain fade has a bigger jump than another, it's probably because there were only a select few knives in existence when I had created this guide. Images will be fixed and modified if deemed necessary.
