for what it is worth, the example i purchased also weighs more than 1.2 pounds (the stated weight in the amazon listing). mine clocks in at 1.666 pounds, or 757 grams. the "sheath" (really just an edge guard) adds 1.2 ounces, or 34 grams. of course this stuff will only matter to weight weenies packing the thing for bushcraft or survival, but that could be me, so there it is.
nonetheless, it is a five star product, and mine shaved arm hair right out of the box.
It also came nicely sharpened as well, but I also touched it up just a bit as well to add even more sharpness. It'll trim the hair on your forearm quite nicely, and it will chop wood like a breeze. This axe will also do a great job for making various camp implements, such as makeshift tent stakes (Which I did), and so on.
Bottom line: If you need a high quality axe that will get the job done better than most other axes (With the exception of a Gransfors-Bruks), then this is the one. Don't be put off by the price, because it is well worth it. Both of my buddies that went with me that weekend also loved it, and were envious of it.
