Forge Steel Ash Wood Handle Rubber Mallet 32oz
Basic indispensable tool for many applications. Unfortunately the handle is not thick enough for the weight of the head so does not provide sufficiently secure grip even for my relatively small hands. Hopefully, being Ash, the shaft should survive reasonably well.
My assumption is that this is just another situation where the design is developed by someone who is not a tool user.
Predictably it is a fraction of the price of a Thor so this ensures its good value.

Good value and excellent weight for our activity!
This weight of mallet is far more effective than the lighter models.

Mallet weight is great but the handle would be better fitted to a pin hammer way to thin a shaft to get a decent grip of a mallet this weight unless you've got a very small hand.

Probably the worst rubber mallet I've bought. Another reviewer mentioned the skinny handle, though we've never broken one, they're not comfortable. We wind some handle tape on them. The head constantly moves and comes loose, and the rubber splits. They get a hard life in the brewery, and only last for one week, if we're lucky. By contrast, a Thor branded mallet will give us a couple of month's service.
