Knife Review: Cold Steel Finn Hawk

By Timothy Gamble
I love Cold Steel knives. They make well-designed, high quality knives at an affordable price. My latest Cold Steel acquisition is the Finn Hawk - a full-tang, fixed blade knife with a 4-inch blade. The Finn Hawk has quickly become my "go to" knife for general use. I give it 5 out of 5 stars, because I literally have nothing to complain about with this knife. I cannot find a single negative thing to say about it.

Here are the specs:
  • Over-all Length: 8¾ inches
  • Blade Length: 4 inches
  • Grind: Scandi 
  • Spine: 1/8-inch thickness, 90-degree (can be used to spark a ferro rod)
  • Weight: 5.1 ounces (not including sheath)
  • Handle/Grip: Dual Injection Mold, outer layer is TPR rubber
  • Steel: German 4116 Stainless
  • Sheath: secure-ex polymer sheath with belt loop
  • Price: currently under $20 on Amazon, so its affordable
The Finn Hawk comes quite sharp right out of the box, and seems to hold its sharpness well. It is a Scandi grind, so its fairly easy to sharpen when needed. Ir is a full-tang knife, except for the very-back tip which sweeps upwards to allow for a lanyard hole, so maybe technically it could be argued not full-tang, but its definitely more than a three-quarters tang, so I let others argue the technicality.

The Finn Hawk has proven to be a great general-purpose field knife for me. Frankly, I like it better than my Swiss Moras. An all-around great knife for work around the homestead or campsite. Priced at under $20, it is an amazing deal for its quality and usefulness (find it on Amazon). I like this knife so much, I've ordered a second one to have as a back-up.
