The handles on mine were unfinished, which is fine. Saves me having to scrape them down for a finish I like. If that bothers you, beware. Also, these are small heads with very short handles. I don't know if they would satisfy someone looking to "swing" it like standard size mallets and hammers. You won't be carving any totem poles from logs with these. For me, fit and "finish" are fine and I recommend them.
I'm impressed light but for delicate caring very usefull in hard woods.
The head srews on to the handle with a brass stud, if any problem developes
Replacement is easy.
The one thing that annoys me is that grotesque "SHOP FOX" stenciled across the crown in black letters. I took some abrasive paper and sanded that garbage off. Wouldn't have minded a nice engraved logo. Used to be a time when companies took great care that their branding devices (logos, letting, etc) were aesthetically pleasing.
Of course, I guess that's the age we live in- where one factory in China makes something and 100 different 'wholesalers' rebrand it with their own name for retail sale. As such, the sum effort of their brand is black letters hastily stenciled across whatever space is available.
Still, picky rant aside, you won't regret buying this. Holds well in the hand, strikes well. I don't mind buying simple stuff from the Orient (hammers, tool trays, etc). If any precision is involved, I generally stuck with brands of known quality standards.
EDIT: Dropped it to one star. The handle wouldn't stay tight, and finally broke and cracked up near the head. This is after very light use.

Perfect mini mallet for my toolbox. I'm going to put some blue loctite on the threads to prevent the brass head from coming loose.Published 18 months ago by webman
