Cold Steel Finn Hawk

A design collaboration between Andrew Demko and Lynn C. Thompson, the Cold Steel Finn Hawk is the latest in their series of inexpensive hard wearing bushcraft and outdoor tools. Its traditional Nordic styled “Scandi Ground” German 4116 steel blade is sub-zero cryo-quenched for superior edge holding potential, with a steep 7.5mm blade bevel and a functional curving belly for skinning and slicing strokes. Furthermore, its 4” blade is more than big enough for most game processing tasks, not to mention for camp chores and food prep too.


The Finn Hawk’s handle is two time injection moulded. The first layer of high-impact polypropylene is strong, durable and highly weather resistant, while the outer layer (made of TPR rubber) has a whorled spiral pattern providing a food safe, comfortable and secure grip in even the worst conditions. The Finn Hawk is supplied complete with a slim line secure-ex polymer sheath with integrated belt loop.

    Razor sharp.

    Posted by Toad on 15th Mar 2021

    Usual great service from HH. I’m housebound so this will never be used outdoors. I already have the Finn Wolf which I use for wood carving and the Hawk is just as sharp and reliable. It will slice paper thin or take out chunks if needed. Well worth having in you’re tool box.

    Not for everyone

    Posted by Gary on 13th Feb 2021

    It was nice and sharp out the box, skinny but concave wide handle feels nice but not for long periods, good starter knife or back up, really sticks in the sheath, no rattle no fuss,.well worth the money for a beater

    Cheap but excellent

    Posted by Dan on 16th Aug 2020

    I have had this knife for several months and am very satisfied with it. I bought it after a review in a German Knife Magazine recommended it. The blade is fully encased in the rubber handle making it excellent for food preparation and ease of cleaning. It is one of two such knives that I own and I would happily buy a second of either. It is a bit tight in the sheath and requires some force to withdraw however if you are aware of this it can be done safely. I have not cut myself with it although apparently this is a common concern. I suggest holding the base of the sheath whilst withdrawing the knife thus ensuring your hand is clear of the blade when it is removed. A firm grip is needed though as the hand does occasionally slip. Perhaps Finn Hawk could look at the sheath again and redesign it slightly, there is evidence of wear on the handle just at the base of the blade. At £30 or less you can’t complain but care should be taken when handling the knife, as with all blades.

    Very dangerous sheath, it needs revising for safety

    Posted by Michael J on 18th Jun 2019

    I'd already read the review by Alijami about the excessively tight sheath, so I was well prepared... but boy, this is crazy tight and, guess what... I slashed the base of my left hand index finger trying to get the knife out! There is tight for security, but this is quite ridiculous and, excessively tight = dangerous. Cold Steel urgently need to revise the design of this sheath, or the handle of the knife - I believe the oddly textured 'rubber' may increase the tightness of the fit, whatever, this sheath is not properly designed for this knife, *be warned*!

    not for me, others MMV

    Posted by Alijami on 25th Apr 2019

    I need to start with the sheath because that is what made the Finn Hawk impossible for me to keep. The force required to remove the knife is in my opinion excessive. In hindsight, most YouTube reviews make the same point. It is interesting to compare with the Mora 860 Companion which is a broadly similar knife. The Mora requires less force plus the sheath has a thumb ramp to push against. The Finn Hawk doesn't. That out of the way the Finn Hawk has a number of features sufficiently different and arguably better than the Mora Companion to justify the slightly higher price point. Perhaps most importantly, unlike the Companion, ex-factory the spine is square ground and will strike a ferrocerium rod and will also scrape bark. The Finn Hawk also has a lanyard hole favoured by some though these are mods that Mora Companion enthusiasts can make to their own knives. Unlike the Mora, the Finn Hawk has a straight spine without a drop point. A result of this is slightly more belly, so a better profile for food processing. My Mora lives in the kitchen drawer when not outdoors. In hindsight I would have been happy with the Finn Hawk on permanent kitchen duty instead of the Mora. So a great value knife for anybody prepared to commit to the sheath or who just wants to try something different.

    Excellent knife.

    Posted by Leigh on 22nd Dec 2018

    Comfortable handle, sharp, squared spine. 4116 steel takes a good edge & is a doddle to retouch. Sheath is a Mora type but with superior retention. Someone complained about getting the knife out of the sheath? Yes, it's a bit stiff, but a tag of 550 through the lanyard hole deals with that one quite nicely. Personally I rather have too much retention, rather than risk loosing the knife. Throws sparks from a Ferro rod like no one's business. It's a Cold Steel so you shouldn't break it, unless your doing seriously dozy with it. At under £30 it's a good buy. Soon as they come back in stock, I am going to be getting another one.
