Review Requests: Cold Steel Tomahawks/Axes

Apr 24, 1999
I thought I posted this thread yesterday, but it somehow disappeared. Anyway, I believe the title says it all.
all I'm going to say is you can't go wrong with one of them (except the bad axe) and get extra handles
Eye, I'm primarily concerned w/ performance. I.e., how they hold up performing in a campsite/yardwork situation. You know, chopping wood and limbing. Any hotspots? Does the tool do most of the work or do you have to put some oomph into it to get it to do its thing? Edges hold up well? And finally, for utility purposes (I'll try throwing later), which would be recommended? Keep in mind that I like to pack light, though. Thanks.
