Great hammer, slightly heavier than listed.
First off, this hammer is fantastic. It comes ready to swing, with not corners in need of dressing.
My only qualm (reason for 4 stars, not 5) is that the hammer is actually 1.5kg (3.3lbs) instead of the listed 3lbs. I'm guessing that the 2lb hammer is 1kg (2.2lbs) as well.
The handle is well sized and has enough material so that it can be sanded down to your liking if need be. It has some sort of clear coat on it. I'm not sure what it is, but you may want to sand it down.
Overall, this is an excellent hammer, especially for the price.
