CS90TH: 90TH 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"
Received package a feww days ago along with paracords and some knives. As with many reviewers I decide to " redo/ design" the wooden handle and started to remove the screw it was so tightly fitted. I started first manually with an allen key with minimal success. It did not budge.I decided to use allen key bit with my cordless drill. No success. The ultimate decision - saw off part of the handle.Done! right? no,no. Screw was still VERY,VERY dificult to remove. Paint in the tread.... maybe?. Now I have to give more business to Knifecenter. : )

Pros: Balance, None
Cons: Construction
poorly made
I bought this partly for the removeable handle, and found that the set screw holding the head on was stripped at the factory. Also the handle doesn't fit the axe head well where it's flared at the end, crudely chipped and splintered. Also not a big deal but they could have sharpened it at least a little? I thought Cold Steel had a great reputation-- not impressed

Pros: Balance, None
Cons: Head Material
I wouldn't recommend it
It's a cheap tomahawk. The edge is beyond dull. I probably shouldn't use it for chopping wood but I have and it's okay for smaller limbs but beyond that, not much. Maybe it's good for throwing but I haven't tried it. The balance seems nice but I don't have anything to compare it to.
