Modelled after an early frontier pattern, the Cold Steel Trail Hawk can do it all. It's an excellent chopper and has a functional hammer poll with a hardened face so you can drives nails, hammer in stakes, and smash or crush just about anything. Best of all it's extremely lightweight and compact so it is a cinch to tuck it under your belt or lash it to a pack or shooting bag.

    Cold Steel Trail Hawk

    Posted by Philip Greenhill on 22nd Jul 2022

    This is my 5th Cold Steel Hawk/axe and the first that I haven't had to clean up the fitting around the head, they arrived looking similar to the photo to one degree or another. Considering how sharp CS knives are I'd have hoped for sharper edges on their hawks but I haven't found it to be so. I'm still a fan of them though and enjoy throwing them (badly)

    Cold steel Trail Hawk

    Posted by Ken on 30th Jun 2022

    Wow, this is my first tomahawk, so no previous to compare to. First impress, I absolutely love it. The head is small, so you think that's dinky, the blade edge is dull, the new rustic blacksmith coating is really nice, the handle is well shaped. Then you swing it, omg this thing bites like a rottweiler out of the box, tactically, it would undoubtedly'keeel', as a general tool, very capable. It slides in the belt and due to its compact form you could wear this all day long. It throws like a dream and sinks in up to the nuts with little effort. If you remember tradtional hawks are general purpose tool/weapons not specialised wood choppers like a granfors, then you will be amazed. Due to its compact form, in SHTF, it's perfect for combining with another or a spike hawk and wear on the belt all day with no issue.

    Needs work

    Posted by Andrew on 12th Dec 2021

    As new, the hawk has issues - the head is covered in a horrible black paint, the handle is too long (for my uses), there’s a horrible foil sticker on the head, the head is loose, there’s a useless grub screw, the edges of the eye are really sharp and burred, so the eye digs into the handle instead of friction fitting, and lastly the edge wasn’t sharp. I read a lot of reviews and watched a lot of YT videos about theTrail Hawk, so I knew all of the flaws before I bought it and knew I would have to correct them. After a couple of hours work with a hacksaw, sandpaper, round file, mill file, linseed oil, and a custom leather sheath, the hawk looks stunning. A tomahawk doesn’t chop or split as well as an axe or hatchet, but it’s lighter to carry and use than an axe/hatchet, I find it’s better at finer tasks like stripping, feather sticks, notches etc, also the head comes off easily and can be used on its own, and it’s easy to make a new/replacement handle. For short trips it is my go to tool, as well as the main tasks of chopping and splitting I also use it for most of the tasks I used to use a bushcraft knife for - so now, for the trips where all I’m doing is making fire and cooking, the only blades I carry are the Hawk and a Case folder.

    Cold steel trail hawk

    Posted by Will Marshall on 30th Jul 2021

    Just what I needed for my pack, not sharp but didn't take much work to sharpen to a good edge. The grub screw was a pain to remove and rounded a hex key.

    Better fit and finish

    Posted by Mark on 18th Jun 2021

    I have been using the Trailhawk for about a week now. This isn’t long enough to give a definitive review, but I can pass on some initial thoughts. I will mostly be comparing it to the Pipe Hawk by Cold Steel that has been my go to camping chopper for about 7 years now. First is that the fit and finish are way better. The new style comes in a nice forge scale rustic coating that I love and am going to leave untouched (less the tiny “Taiwan” etching”) way better than the hateful gloss finish these hawks used to come with. The set screw is still there though. In this case the handle friction fit perfectly, no carving or sanding required like the pipe hawk, but that might have just been a fluke. I did try it on my pipe hawk handle and it fitted nice there too. The edge on my pipe hawk came with a simple V grind, the Trail hawk came with a compound grind that was much easier to convex, although my tools and sharpening skills have got better in the last 7 years which may account for this. This, hawk was ready for use in about 20 minutes from opening, my pipe hawk took a few hours. Overall I would say the production quality is much better. In terms of its utility, the Trail Hawk head weighed exactly 12 Oz on my kitchen scale, the handle about 10. This makes it very light. The pipe hawk head is 5 Oz heavier, and I thought that was light. The trail hawk head is smaller in every direction, including the distance between the cutting edge and the handle, which makes the trail hawk great for precision cuts. The thin blade digs deep into wood, but is a simple wedge shape and sticks if you hit with much force. I had to change my technique, using short rapid pecks to avoid sticking. I have tested it on a 5” thick cherry branch that I cut about 3 months ago, it was still fairly green. I bucked it into 5 pieces, which took longer than I would normally take with the bigger hawk, but was quite energy efficient, not tiring at all. It was able to split the resulting foot long pieces but needed “persuasion” from a mallet to drive the eye through before the wood gave up. It performed much better on carving tasks, the bit was light and precise, cutting depth was easy to control and I never feared breaking my work like I do with hatchets. I left the handle full length and had no problems with fine work, which is a good job as it would make a terrible chopper if the handle wasn’t as long as it is. Overall I think it was a good purchase. I will see how much use it gets over the next couple of years before making a final judgement, but believe it is a viable alternative to a light hatchet if you don’t mind packing the longer handle.

    Shockingly Poor

    Posted by Tony on 5th May 2020

    Simply not usable out of the box, 1.5mm flat edge. Fitting of the head is awful and silm taper of the top handle means it's going to be hard to refit and I might have to replace. I have bought a few cold steel products over the years and I've watched there quality go down, but stuck with them because I like there designs and with some work can turn out good bits of kit, but this is last straw, the whole thing needs reworking, last time I buy anything cold steel. This is no fault on heinnie Haynes, there service is spot on, I have ordered before and will again. But on this tomahawk buyer beware

    overall poor quality

    Posted by Dave on 23rd Jul 2019

    Handle so smooth it's almost slippery, will be worse when working in rain. Head loose and actually moves slightly. Guessing the only thing holding it place is the tiny grub screw. Utterly blunt. Can press thumb against 'edge' with full pressure and no cut. Not really worth the price, feels more like something closer to a £20 product at most.
