Our Trench Hawk may well be the perfect antidote to the raw terror of eyeball to eyeball combat in the confined spaces of a trench, bunker, alley or narrow hallway. All it takes is one stroke from either the vicious cutting edge or its brutal wedge shaped spike to end the fight, and if the party starts at longer range the Trench Hawk's twin "business ends" make an accurate throw a breeze, since there's double the chance of a lethal hit. When used defensively, the Trench Hawk's cutting edge and spike also provide a big advantage, as either can be used for hooking or trapping and, like our Spike Hawk, their combined length can be used to parry or block an incoming blow. Drop forged from 5150 carbon steel and differentially hardened, the head of the Trench Hawk will withstand tremendous blows and the awful stress of continued throwing. The handle of the Trench Hawk is also highly resistant to shock and impact and will withstand abuse that would easily break even a tough hickory handle. And, as an added benefit, is easily and cheaply replaced when finally worn out or broken from repeated throwing (NOTE: any handle can, and will, break eventually). Finally, to help protect its owner from its cutting edge and dangerously sharp spike, it comes with a patented Secure- Ex sheath that features a cleverly articulated design.

The blade is nice, strong, and can cut through everything I've tried. I managed to cut a 5 inch diameter tree in less than a minute without any damage to the blade. I've only picked up a couple of nicks in the blade since buying it, and it was usually from either a rock stuck in the wood, or a nail.
The spike will go through just about anything you can think of as well, including hard hats, bicycle helmets, motorcycle helmets, and steel.
The only issue I had with it was the sheath. I dropped it once and it snapped both the rivet and the plastic of the sheath itself. That being said, it was still usable without the spike cover, and the blade piece is still held on using the nylon strap buttoned around to the other side.
All around great tool for camping, travel, or even a bug out bag.
When I received it, it came in a decent size shipping container. When I opened it, I was greeted with a few strips of those giant air bubbles and the axe itself. The axe was only covered in a bit of plastic. There was no box for the item itself so you wouldn't know that it was actually from Cold Steel or what the item is specifically. So in other words, the packaging could be nicer. I expected more from Cold Steel than just plastic wrap on the head.
The sheath was one of the reasons that I bought the axe. I thought it was pretty cool and I was not disappointed.
When I removed the sheath, there was a bit of paper, held on my grease/oil, probably to keep the blade in good condition. I removed it an wiped off all the oils from the axe. I tested the sharpness of the axe and found it to be sharp enough. It can cut through paper rather smoothly but is not 100% consistent through out the blade. That doesn't really matter too much since you are going to be doing a lot of chopping an not much fine cutting.
Just in case you were curious, there is an area close to the head of the axe that you can hold ergonomically. With that, you get more control of the axe head and can do some fine cutting if you wish.
The spike on this is very sharp and can definitely be used as a weapon during something like the zombie apocalypse. Even though the odds of actually having a zombie apocalypse is nearly 0%, it is still a fun tool to have.
The handle feels very durable and strong.
Total weight is 2 lbs 3 oz or 990 grams. It has a nice heft to it.
Whether you are using it for some fun destruction, handy work, or a weapon for self defense, then this is a pretty good axe for your money. It costs slightly more than some lower end ones but it is well worth the $10-$20 more.
