Cold Steel Trail Boss Review

Looking for a good budget axe that won’t break your wallet then check out the Cold Steel Trail Boss. The Trail Boss is a nice entry level axe, lightweight and the perfect size to carry with you for most jobs.  We used the axe to chop kindling, clear roads and trails, to build blinds and fell a nice sized tree.  The Cold Steel Trail Boss is a good quality axe at a good price and that makes it good value axe to own.

Solid Wood Cutting Axe

The axe is a rugged camp axe featuring a European style axe head made from drop forged 1055 carbon steel. The Trail Boss is of comparable quality and price to the other hickory handled, carbon steel camp axes. The wood axe overall length is 23 inches, with a cutting edge of 4 ½ inches. The Cold Steel Axe weighs 2 pounds, 9.5 ounces. It has a straight-grained, American Hickory handle.

Easy to Carry

If you’re going camping, especially if the weather is cold, then bringing the Cold Steel Trail Boss with you is a no-brainer. The axe is compact enough to stow in most vehicles for easy transport.

Plus, Trail Boss is light and compact enough to carry all day in your hand or secured to your pack frame, yet heavy and tough enough to make quick work out of most camping jobs. The axe blade takes a big bite with every swing. Cold Steel Camp Axe features a very stout straight-grained Hickory handle. Cold Steel Trail Boss is a good quality axe at a good price and will no disappoint.

This axe is awesome!

Bought this axe for cutting trails, backpacking & Bushcraft adventures. Out of the pacakge, (as with all axes) had to take a file and sharping stone to the blade. It does not come with a sheath, no biggie…for the price it is worth it to make one or buy one.

Great Axe

Handle is light and sturdy. Axe head when sharpened correctly will shave hair of your arm and it will hold an edge well. I may buy another to have a backup.

I have taken this on three camping trips, and it works great. It chops very well, and it seems to be good quality.

Cold Steel has done it again. Well balanced, strong handle with a good sold feel to it. Took an edge that you could shave with. Does not come with a sheath.

Great little camp axe

Great little camp axe. Used it a lot this summer to cut down split logs for outdoor fires. Handle feels very sturdy and fits well in my hand. I made a leather sheath to protect the axe head and make it safer to travel with. It fits perfectly under the seat in my truck when its not on my back pack. Perfect weight to hike with and takes the place of my Becker B2 for splitting duties for fires and some trapping. Came out so sharp that I was a little worried about accidental cutting. I would recommend it to anyone for a handy axe to have. It has some limitations with bigger logs but thats to be expected.

Its a good axe that can be a great axe.

If you are looking for a bushcraft axe and dont have alot of money this is it. An you can make it a 100 dollar axe with little time or use it right out of the box it up to you. But for the money it a good buy.
