Product Description

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.

This is a quick review for those who purchase this as a user.

This hatchet was produced to capitalize on a movie prop, but it has several elements that make it very useful. The handle is long enough for a two handed grip, the edge is straight allowing it to be used as a carpenters axe and for efficient chip removal, it's light enough to be used for carving and it's heavy enough to be used for chopping.

However, there are several things that have to be taken into consideration if your going to use this (as apposed to hanging it on a wall).
-There is no edge on this, at least not the one I received. By this I mean that it's completely square at the edge, like using the back of a box cutter.
-The edge is left very thick, even if it was finished - right behind what would be the edge bevel your looking at .100" thick. I filed mine down to .030" thick right behind the edge, which involved putting a heavy secondary relief bevel that was about half an inch wide. A substantial amount of file work.
-All of the edges are sharp 90 degree corners with minimal edge breaks. It's worth taking a file to each edge including the pole (back of the axe used for hammering) and round them out to reduce stress risors.
-The handle has a flush square corner at the base of the head. This is to say that on a normal axe handle the eye of the axe is forced onto a tapered shape, where on this it rests on a table of wood. This may cause problems since as the axe vibrates, it will be vibrating on a surface that can push the head away from the handle. You might want to carve it away so that you can push the head farther on to the handle, giving you more room to flare the top out of the wood in the eye out, giving better retention strength.
-The handle is thicker than it needs to be.

None of the other reviews talked about actually throwing this hatchet. I bought it for several reasons:
A. To throw
B. The awesomeness of owning an Ax Gang hatchet
C. To generally use in the woods.

I'm experienced throwing knives of all sizes, and after a few misses, figures out how to throw this axe. It landed clean, chopped wood just fine, and looks great.

In a youtube review here:
[...]

This guy proves the worth of this ax, shows it being thrown, and puts it to the test. He then explains how he broke it in half by purposefully trying to break it, compares it to a $130 tomahawk, and then calls it garbage.

Bottom line, this is a great tool. It looks great, it works great, and it throws great. If you want a functional hatchet, a throwable tomahawk, or a generally righteous prop from kung fu history priced at just $20, this is for you!!

If you're looking for a $130 tomahawk that won't break when you smash the handle against a tree, you should just re-evaluate your life choices.

When I received this product I was excited. If you have ever seen the movie "kung fu hustle" or other martial arts movies where there there a hatchet then you you like this item. It arrived with a great edge for chopping. One thing to watch out for is when you try to take off the sticker it comes with, that can be tricky. Overall for the price of this product you will get more than your money's worth.I might get another one just to keep pretty while I use this one

This is a nice hatchet that will serve its purpose perfectly.
The one problem I had with it was that the symbols were messed up. They look burned/carved in from the pictures but mike were just cheap vinyl decals that were put on poorly.
The ax holds up well through day to bay activities and chops well.
Blade is very easy to sharpen and seems to hold a good edge for an ax.

A very good reproduction of the traditional Chinese hatchet. It is very sturdy, and well balanced. I was a bit disappointed by the Chinese characters on the handle. From the picture, it appeared that they were carved in. However it appears to be a decal, which will wear off in time. Otherwise, I am very pleased; I bought 2 of them!

BTW, if you're not familiar with the reference "the Hatchet Gang," check out the movie, Kung Fu Hustle.

I like the weight, however not as sharp as I expected. I will have to put an edge on it before I try to use it. Great price and quick delivery.
