Cold Steel 90TA Trail Boss. The Trail Boss is light and compact enough to carry all day in your hand or strapped to your pack, yet heavy and 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 1/2" cutting edge, it takes a big bite with every swing. Plus, it features a very stout straight-grained Hickory handle.

Extensively field-tested by Lynn C. Thompson on a month-long hunting trip in the outback of Australia, the Trail Boss was really put to the test. He used it to chop kindling, clear roads and trails, build blinds, and even chop down a fair-sized Gidgee Tree (one of the hardest woods found down under).

The Cold Steel Trail Boss Axe/Hatchet features a 6.5-inch hawk length, and 4.5-inch primary edge made of drop forged 1055 Carbon Steel. Its cutting edge is differentially heat treated. straight-grained American hickory which is unsurpassed for absorbing the shock of hard chopping. Weight: 2 Lbs 9.5 ounces. This is an oversize item, it does not qualify for free shipping or Basic shipping, due to the weight must go through Priority Mail.

Note: This is a large, oversize, heavy item. Additional shipping charges apply. Not eligible for FREE SHIPPING or BASIC SHIPPING methods. Please select Large Axe Package Shipping Method upon checkout. Thank-you.

Great Axe! Will Last a LifeTime if taken care of. Great Build Quality. Had a sharp enough edge to chop with but i put a sharper edge on it that is razor sharp. Sharp enough to cut the hair on my arms. Its a beautiful axe. And the design is one of the best ones for axes. Definitely made to Last and cut down a forest. Super lightweight for its size.

Would definitely buy it again and recommend to buy one, Im surprised its this inexpensive. I would easily see this as a $100 axe. Definitely keeps up with the more expensive axes for sure. Never thought id be so happy over an axe. But its like Christmas when it arrived and gave me joy.

I am happy with this axe but am disappointed that it did not come with a sheath. The handle was a little rough but workable.

Well pleased the only exception being that desired is a true 'slab sawed' grain in the handle, uniform the whole length.

Great Axe I have used it successfully in Southern Texas.

I own three of these Cold Steel Trail Boss bushcraft axes (one in my truck, one in my camper, and one in my pack. Because of their true versatility and cost they can't be beat, they excel in the North American forest and hold and keep and edge like the old axes of yester year, they all needed some edge work out of the box, the handles are straight grained American hickory like you get on a Gransfors Bruks or Wetterlings axe. I have experienced no head slip or grain splits in any of them, if you want true performance and overall toughness give this axe a throw, it is as close to perfect as you could get for a 23" inch bushcraft style axe! Kudos to Cold Steel on this one!

This is a great camp axe. I plan to buy another to leave in the car. I was clearing some bush and some small trees and this axe worked like a champ. Came out of the box sharp and the handle is solid.
