CS90TA: 90TA Trail Boss Axe
Cold Steel
The Cold Steel Trail Boss Axe is compact enough to carry all day in your hand or strapped to your pack, yet tough enough for chores that would make a hatchet or tomahawk scream for mercy. Featuring a European style head with a 4" blade and a 4.5" cutting edge, it takes a big bite with every swing. Plus, it features a very sturdy, durable straight-grained American Hickory handle. In our extensive field-tests in the outback of Australia, the Trail Boss was used to chop kindling, clear roads and trails, to build blinds and even to chop down a fair sized tree!

Wood grain will vary from piece to piece.
  • Primary Edge: 4.5"

Takes a Heck of an Edge-invest in a cover
THE TRAIL BOSS IS MY PICK FOR FINEST YOU CAN GET FOR YOUR MONEY ON EARTH...I sharpened a mean edge on mine and failed to get a cover prior.I grabbed yesterday to move it and it slid and cut my finger.THESE ARE PERFECT SIZE and hold edge til cows come home..The cut is so clean and deep into the top of my finger,almost to bone.Amazing how it dont take much.These handle great for felling,or can even pack as trail axe by lashing to pak,but these are NOT your grand dads axe,must invest in some type of cover.I am thankful I got cut,not my pup or family member.The old timers were not as sharp able as these.JUST LIKE COLD STEEL PERFORMANCE CUTLERY,THESE ARE NO JOKE..YOU WILL NOT DO BETTER THAN THESE for your buck..

Cons: None
Not made in China
TAIWAN IS NOT CHINA! Better quality and an ally. The head is made in Taiwan, the handle is American hickory. That being said, great camp/trail axe for the money. A European model costing 3x more would be the next step up. Point of balance is 4 inches below the head. Handle quality on mine is great, nearly perfectly vertical grain.

Very Nice Tomahawk
Weight and balance are excellent. It just feels right in my hands. Shorter than a standard felling axe, but excellent quality and balance.
