CS90TH: Trail Hawk
Cold Steel

Modeled after an early frontier pattern, our 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's a cinch to tuck it under your belt or lash it to a pack or shooting bag.

Drop Forged Tomahawks

These superb tomahawks are precision drop forged from 1055 Carbon steel. Drop forging is, without doubt, the best method of manufacture for any impact weapon, particularly one with a cutting edge. During the forging process a metal ingot is heated almost white hot and then formed into shape in a series of progressive dies. The large steel dies are fixed to enormous compressed air hammers. Each die hammers the hot metal into a gradually more finished shape. The steel is kneaded and compressed into a completely homogenous mass making the grain structure uniform and minimizing gas pockets or other imperfections that can ruin the construction of a hand forged hawk. This is why most good axes, hatchets, and hammers are drop forged.

These hawks are differentially heat treated. This means that the cutting edge and hammer face is fully hardened, while the balance is left relatively soft to absorb the shock of striking blows.

great hawk
great hawk.. better steel than the 420J, I think. figured out one thing! that little set screw? 3 mm hex head! but don't worry about that little wobble. the screw is fully torqued. Hickory is enormously tough. It's used to make baseball bats.

Cold Steel 90TH Trail Hawk Drop Forged Tomahawk 22" Overall
Great little tomahawk for camping. flat head hammer on one side and a shape blade for cutting on the other. I wanted a multipurpose tool to everything to setup camp and in a pinch self protection. Shipping was fast and arrived intact. I liked everything except for the white hickory handle. I just disassembled and painted it black. Looks great now.

Walkabout tool
Companion for walks through the woods. Use it to harvest fat wood and flint. Works for anything else that needs a hawk hanger tween it's eyes.
