This hammer looks great, better than in the picture. However, after only having it about a week and just from holding and lightly swinging it, the head has become loose on the haft. This isn't a huge deal as this is a wall-hanger type piece, but it is a bit disappointing. Also, the description says that the head is solid but I can hear a little piece of something rolling around in there. I wouldn't discourage anyone from buying it necessarily but be aware that it is not quite as solid as it looks.
