CS90FH: 90FH Frontier Hawk
Cold Steel
Suitable for re-enactors from any period stretching from the French and Indian War clear up to the final settling of the West in the late 1800s. The authentic, good looking Frontier Hawk is one tough customer you're sure to appreciate. This light weight Hawk is a joy to use too as it reduces wrist, elbow and shoulder strain without sacrificing anything in chopping power or ease of handling. The merits of its light weight are revealed in combat too because the Frontier Hawk can be used at light speed from any angle and immediately recovered!

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 homogeneous 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.

Pros: Head Material, Construction, Weight, Handle Material
Cons: Balance, None
Solid working tool
Great tomahawk for working. I read a lot of reviews where the head didn't fit like it should have but it has yet to be an issue with me. Used it to chop down a 6in thick tree, didn't break a sweat. Now I don't like this for throwing. For whatever reason it seems to hit on the top of the ax head, connecting where the wood sticks out on top. Still for the price I got can't beat it.

I bought 3 of these for my husband for Christmas. They are great! Except one of the handles arrived damaged and split in half after a few uses.

Pros: Handle Material, Balance, Weight, Head Material
Cons: None
Fantastic tool, beyond original expectations.
Bought this on a whim with rewards points from another distributor (although I am a faithful customer to knifecenter and have never been disappointed by price or service). It has quickly become the go-to tool for chores. Removed set screw, sharpened, refinished handle, and it is a pleasure to use. Chopping, pruning, even light splitting... Holds an edge and its light weight makes it a swift and efficient tool. Choke up under the beard and its an effective 'push knife' for feather sticks and detail work. Would make an ideal camping/survival companion. And for the price and a little elbow grease, it is a fine tool.
