This will be my first review ever.....
My friend had the Cold steel trench hawk, and i had the M48 Tomahawk. We were on a 1 day survival trip, whichmean We are limited on what we can bring on the survival trip. No tents, sleeping bag, guns, drugs, no lighter or matches, basically very minimal amount of stuff. So I used both Tomahawks to chop wood, cut to make a shelter. We also had a throwing contest and to see which is good for throwing.

Cold Steel tomahawk-

Nice and heavy for cutting and chopping wood.
Every throw Stuck on the tree
Stayed Sharp
Comes with a nice Cover

its a Bit top heavy


Light and Fast
Very Sharp
Decent at chopping and cutting wood
Fancy box

Doesnt stick when thrown
Metal is not as tough as Cold steel trench hawk.
The cover for the tomahawk, button broke.

So If I had to buy another one again, I would buy the Cold steel trench hawk.

I just got the M48 tomahawk. I haven`t got a chance to put it thru its paces yet. I`ll get back to you.
