11/12/13UPDATE: Been getting a lot of reports that this has been patched recently.
I haven't been able to test it myself.
I'll leave the guide up in case you still want to give it a shot, but don't get your hopes up I suppose.
This is a short guide detailing how to use the new knives in offline/private matches without having to buy them from the marketplace or be lucky enough to unbox one.
While you can't keep/use them in normal online matches, you can still have fun experimenting with the new knives.
They don't appear to offer any advantages over the default knife, but they have some really cool animations that you might want to check out.

Start a Game

From the main menu, click on PLAY and select OFFLINE WITH BOTS.
Any game mode should be fine, but I recommend using Classic Casual.
If you have your own server, you can use that as well.

Console Commands

First, make sure you have the console enabled.
Find the Enable Developer Console (~) option.
Change it to Yes if you haven't already done so.
Once you're in the game, you'll have to enter several console commands to get the knives.
Start by opening the console (~ key by default).
Input sv_cheats 1 and hit enter.
This will turn on cheats.
Next, input mp_t_default_melee "" if you're a terrorist, OR mp_ct_default_melee "" if you're a counter-terrorist and hit enter.
Be sure to include the quotes! This will cause you to spawn without a knife.
You'll have already started with the default knife in hand, so input mp_restartgame 1 to restart without a knife.
Finally, input one of the following to give yourself any of the new knives: give weapon_knife_karambit give weapon_knife_flip give weapon_knife_gut give weapon_bayonet give weapon_knife_m9_bayonetNow all there's left to do is have fun! Some extra things to keep in mind: Each time you die you'll spawn with no knife and you'll have to use the give weapon command to drop another one.
You can input KILL in console to kill yourself at any time to respawn and give yourself a different knife to try.
If you're in a private match and want to drop some knives for your friends, use the give command when you already have a knife in your hand and you'll be able to drop them on the ground.
