CS90AXG: Axe Gang Hatchet
Cold Steel

For years, Cold Steel has tried to bring to market one of the devastating Chinese styled hatchets used with such awesome effect in several Kung Fu movies. The Cold Steel version, the Axe Gang Hatchet, is an authentically formidable weapon, not just a prop for the cameras.

It features a drop-forged head, with a differential heat treatment (hard edge-soft body), and a straight, four inch cutting edge (with sharp corners). In addition to that it has a straight grain American Hickory handle with the Kanji characters that mean "Axe Gang".

Due to its substantial weight and straight handle, it's easy to throw with great accuracy.

Pros: Weight, Construction, Head Material
Cons: None
Great for the money
I find even though I have a lot of axes and hatchets. I always seem to grab this hatchet for most light to medium chopping around the yard. Fit and finish on mine was quite good. Keeps a fantastic edge. As with most Cold steel items you get a LOT of bang for your buck. Especially if you shop around for lowest price.

"Axe Gang"
A nice replica of the weapon favored by Chinese tongs in turn of the century San Francisco, as well as many Kung-Fu movies. Therefore, it doesn't bother me that the handle is a bit thick/longer than a hawk. If you've seen footage of gangs fighting with these, they look a little awkward to wield anyway....still wouldn't want someone swinging it at my head.

Too thick a handle
Great edge and great steel head. The handle though, is just too thick. The Cold Steel Spike Tomahawk handle would be a great handle for this awesome hatchet head. Even if Cold Steel were to just mill down the existing handle towards the lower grasp, it would be a 5 Star rating. Love the look, and heft...hate the handle!
