CS90AXG: 90AXG Axe Gang Hatchet

Cold Steel

For years, Cold Steel has tried to bring to market one of the devastating Chinese styled hatchets used with such awesome effect in countless Kung Fu movies. The Cold Steel version, the Axe Gang Hatchet, is an authentically formidable weapon, not just a prop for the cameras.

It features a drop-forged head, with a differential heat treatment (hard edge-soft body), and a straight, four inch cutting edge (with sharp corners). In addition to that it has a straight grain American Hickory handle with the Kanji characters that mean "Axe Gang".

The sharp corners of the edge will easily pierce the thickest skull and the razor sharp edge will shear through flesh and bone like it was white bread. Plus due to its substantial weight and straight handle, it's easy to throw with great accuracy and is sure to explode any target with the most violent effect.

Awesome thrower
For that price you can’t beat it. An excellent thrower with a perfect hit every time from 10 paces for me. But the handle did break after approximately 100 throws. A little bit of a disappointment but it was a bad hit that got a little sideways and slapped the target but I still think it should have been able to take that. But I had fun with it and I will replace the handle.

Awesome depending on what you are using it for
I am in an axe throwing league and this badboy is probably the most common axe in my axe dojo (not really called that :).Blade is super thin but the head still has good weight.The handle does relegate it to just a decorative piece if you don't mod it (cut the handle shorter, sand some finger grooves, etc).But that being said, its very well made especially for the price. If you are looking to chop some wood for a fire, probably not a good option though.If you are looking to throw an axe and have it stick, this is an excellent option.

Great for the money
I find even though I have a lot of axes and hatchets. I always seem to grab this hatchet for most light to medium chopping around the yard. Fit and finish on mine was quite good. Keeps a fantastic edge. As with most Cold steel items you get a LOT of bang for your buck. Especially if you shop around for lowest price.
