Cold Steel Trail Hawk Modifications

Cold Steel Trail Hawk American Hickory Handle arrived the head was loose and only held in place by the use of a friction screw (note Tomahawk purists abhor the use of a screw to fasten the blade head to the handle, but I digress)  The Hawk’s American Hickory Handle finish on the handle is very plain Jane, mass produced,  but functional.  As for the Tomahawk head, it’s solidly made of decent steel, but the black paint coating hides the heads true potential.

In order to give your woodsman buddies Tomahawk envy you’ll need introduce your Trail Hawk to a few minutes on the wheel to strip the paint from the hawk’s head and then soak overnight in a vinegar bath. The result is a beautiful patina on Tomahawk’s steel blade.  Next, cleanup the eye with a file for a couple of minutes.  Finally, if you want a blade you can shave with, and who doesn’t, then grab your Arkansas Sharpening Stones and go fifteen minutes on  both a medium stone and fine stone for a razors edge.

As for the CS Trail Hawk Hickory handle, I stripped the finish with 150 grit sandpaper and gave it a couple coats of stain and then lacquer.  The end result of the Cold Steel Trail Hawk makeover is you’ll be the proud owner of a great looking Tomahawk!
