The Cold Steel Axe Gang Hatchet is one of the finest battle hatchets produced by Cold Steel. With the staff and management of Cold Steel being active in martial arts and the film industry, they took special care to make this Chinese Gang Hatchet as functional as it is visually appealing. There are many Cold Steel innovative aspects of this hatchet including the differentially heat treated drop-forged head - which has a hard edge capable of reaching razor sharpness, but a soft steel body for absorbing impacts. The handle is made from hand picked straight grain American Hickory and is embellished with the Kanji characters for "Axe Gang" to give the axe added appeal.

First I had to cut down then handle by 4 inches or, to reduce the 1-spin distance to suit my space requirements. It is certainly possible to throw with the original handle, but you will either have to modify your throw or throw from a different distance. Then I had to sharpen it because the edge was not apexed, and was about as thick as a dime the whole length of the "cutting" edge. Even though it is typical of axe manufactures there is no reason an axe, especially one with a thin grind like this should come any duller than a pocket knife.
Once those modifications were made the axe throws very well. It has just enough weight, and the thin grind helps it stick in even tough targets. Once sharpened, it holds it edge very well and I am more than satisfied with the results.
I picked up this axe. It was a little long for my taste so I cut it down to about 15” in length. It’s a joy to throw and doesn’t fatigue my shoulder due to it’s light weight.
It’s also very durable. I let my students throw it and even though it’s constantly hitting the floor when they use it, it’s still in great shape. All other wood handle hatchets that I’ve tried have broken very quickly if allowed to hit the floor. Try this low cost beauty out for yourself!
