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.

    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.

    perfect for my pack

    Posted by David on 10th Apr 2019

    I wanted something fairly lightweight to do chopping and splitting for firewood. This fits the bill perfectly, much lighter than my hatchet. The head no longer comes with black paint and has a patina from something like gun blue. The handle is nice and smooth and finished well. I had to sharpen it because the edge was very dull. I take the head off and use by hand and can store this in my pack, this lets me put the handle uncut attached to my molle. I've put a small hole and lanyard on the handle to help with fixing it to my pack. The head screw has been removed and I've worked the handle so the head fits perfectly with no wiggle at all. I can just tap the head on and off when I need to use it. I don't know why people complain about them, they're great value for money. My axe and hatchet cost much more than this but I'm very pleased with it. 1st class service from Heinnie again.

    Good travel axe.

    Posted by Shannie on 30th Jan 2019

    Had mine a few years now, excellent service as usual from HH. The axe may have some flaws, but these are far outweighed by its advantages. Mine arrived with good fitting head, and only required a little work to get a razor sharp working edge. Advantages; lightweight, so it packs easy. The length of shaft, although some prefer to shorten it, it is good for extra "purchase". If you want a shorter handle, just change your grip further up the shaft. The length of the cutting edge may be small, but it is effective enough with a practised swing, for splitting and cutting larger timber than you'd expect, assisted by the curved cutting edge. Definitely worth getting a proper fitting sheath to avoid accidents while carrying. I have ground the cheeks on my axe head slightly making it much easier for shaving /carving wood, If you carry all your gear on your back, this axe, and the CRKT Wood Chogan are well worth considering. I chose the Cold Steel for the slightly longer shaft.

    Myth Making Made Steel

    Posted by Old Dog on 7th Sep 2017

    You realise your naivety when the 'Taiwan' etched into the heavily painted head appears more permanent than the sticker which proclaims 'the American tomahawk company,' The shaft of the helve is damaged in an attempt to make it fit the head and then grub screwed to make it stay in place. Of course you expected this to be something of a project but scandinavian tools have spoiled you and this item was not ' that cheap.' Then you pry off the soft clear cover to reveal no edge at all and a grind that will not be sharpened until the paint is stripped. For a little less than half the cost of a small Swedish axe this hawk is only worth the outlay for the sake of novelty or the romance of a time long past.

    Cold Steel Trail Hawk - Excellent

    Posted by David Lukeus on 14th Oct 2015

    Hi all, I thought I'd leave a review for this excellent little Hawk, having read the previous reviews I was a little worried about its quality, but like many others I wanted something to put my own input into. Having taken a chance and placed my order and received it the next working day as with all my orders, Top marks to Heinnie as always, it arrived well packaged and I must say the quality was much better than I expected

    poor quality control by cold steel..

    Posted by hobo on 6th Nov 2014

    I bought one of these as a project hawk.. however I was shocked by the quality of the axe head... plus the fit to the handle was incredibly lose and poor... I was impressed by Heinnie's delivery as always.. I actually contacted Heinnie to mention the poor quality and was advised I could send it back for a full refund.. however I wanted to work on it as a project so I kept it... However, if you wanted it as an "out of the box" product forget it... would have been a danger to yourself and others using it... I have since re-finished the head and handle.. plus soaked in the handle with the head well hammered on in water for three days.. re inserted the grub screw and wedged the ax head... Come on Cold Steel where is your quality control? Cheaply produced and poor quality.. only worth buying if you have the tools and patience to make good...

    Words of Advice

    Posted by Geoff on 10th Jul 2013

    Firstly, I'm stunned, as always, by HH's service and delivery speed! First class. Okay, now, a few words of advice with this item. Not an out of the box ready to go axe. Loose head, splittery handle, etc. This is a piece of kit that you should expect a bit of work on. Instead of buying this as a 100% ready to rock n roll 'hawk, think of it as a project 'hawk. If you see it as that, you have a 5* base to start work with. Remove the head, reshape the hickory top, and then reseat the head. You can add the little screw back, but if you've done a good job with the handle, you shouldn't need to. Sand down the hickory handle, a little oil to get it protected and nice. If you want to go for that Native American feel, a little emory on the head to remove the black coating. Sharpen up the blade if you so desire...I did. Because it is sold (and advertised by Cold Steel) as a ready to go tomahawk, plus because of the effort required to get it into a ready to use state, it only gets 3*.

    Excellent... With abit of TLC

    Posted by Cameron on 27th Jun 2013

    Bought this a few weeks back, right off the bat it didn't quite do it for me and the head wobbled a lot, after some hard use on my DofE camp the head soon seated nicely, when I got back I removed the set screw, stripped the paint, forced a patina, sanded the handle and stained it walnut, then I put in a lanyard tube and a nice thong lanyard and added an OD green paracord Turks head over strike protector. Then a nice convex edge finished the axe of nicely. Lastly I purchased a custom sheath from Broncho custom crafts to put the icing on the cake so to speak. Now it's one fine tool that I am proud to have in my collection. If you want to see what this looks like ill be posting a video on my youtube channel MakingTheCut97. As always great service from Heinnie!
