A practical field review of a cold steel spike hawk. I modified this slightly trying to combine the best features of the other two hawks Ive reviewed/own. Although it turned out well, it does have some minor weight and balance quirks. The blade profile is also thicker changing the cutting characteristics, not in a bad way, just different. Hopefully the base value of this tool was not lost along the way. In my opinion the cold steel hawks I own, while not perfect are still a good tool, priced reasonably. A word of caution though, they can be slightly addicting !
