First off I would like to say hello to the folks in this sub-forum. I hope to become involved in you community.



A few months ago I got a Cold Steel Trail Hawk in trade. While I don't
think it will ever replace my axe, for mild weather it works well. I
think where a hawk shines is the ability to remove the head and use it
for tasks other than chopping. Any way I did a vid and took some pics.
Sorry about the length of the vid.

Here are a few pics to go with it.

Good to see you joining in.  I was impressed on the other site when you posted this info.  

Based in part on what you have done, I now have a Trail Hawk myself.

I have one of those and find it pretty useful.  The only thing I don't like is the way the head is attached to the wood.  That screw lets the head come loose pretty easily.
