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.

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.

Awesome trail hawk
I got this trail hawk mailed to me in Hawaii and it came right on time, so thanks knife center you are awesome! I plan to order again. The edge of my hawk not the sharpest but I thought it was sharper than I expected after looking at other reviews. I will be using it mainly for camping and hiking and ultimately will be in my survival kit. You are going to have to make some changes like sanding the handle, the set screw got thrown out because it's useless, and putting a better edge on the blade. A lot of people customize their hawks like taking the paint off and applying a bluing finish after sanding. I have customized mine where I have sanded the top of the handle to the contour of the hawk sitting sideways and I can use it like an ads tool if I need to. There so much things you can do to customize your trail hawk. I'm going to be doing a lot if cutting so I made mine look good but it's not pretty to where I'll be worried about the cosmetics. All in all it's a great tool, I'm happy with mine and I'm sure you will love yours too. Aloha!
