Love it As always Cold Steel delivers! Quality Product.
This tomahawk handles well and feels very reliable in the hand.
The handles grain is very straight and the head arrived in perfect condition.
Though the factory edge wasn't impressive, a little time with a file fixed it right away. It took an edge very well and held it nicely while chopping and cutting through both green and dead wood.
The handle came with a very smooth finish of some kind, but it made the handle very slippery when any moisture was on it.
This was remedied immediately by a quick wrap with some athletic tape.
It also throws well and is light enough for prolonged use. It bites deep and shears well when notch cutting.
This is a very sturdy and useful tool for anyone on a budget, and as an added bonus the small blade size can be made into an effective impromptu adze for special projects.
4 stars only because of the extra material needed to add grip to the handle.
I bought this tomahawk to use at work (I am a forester). So far, I have used it for chopping relatively small trees and branches off of fence lines and driving fencing staples with the hammer poll. It did a fine job for both tasks. I also tried throwing it in the yard for fun and had no problem getting it to stick. I am not a tomahawk throwing expert, but it seems to be a good thrower as well.
