Often when reviewing items I\'ll take a look at what others have written to see if my views concur with the consensus or wildly out for whatever reason. The reviews for this hammer and mostly excellent, but with the odd ball thrown in for good measure. I noticed a comment saying that it appears to be glued together and with an odd notch in the top. My favourite was a comment that it\'s fine for banging in nails, but for beating you\'re wife to death you\'d need something bigger :)Anyway, my review puts this squarely in the \"I love it\" group. This is a small hammer (see photo, I don\'t have particularly big hands) and perfect for those odd little jobs where a longer handle might get in the way. Interestingly, it\'s not actually that light though, coming in at 384g, a very good weight for something of this size. The handle is black rubberised coated with yellow plastic inserts, including a slot in the very bottom of the handle to add a tether if required.As to the slot in the top, well, it\'s clearly for straightening nails. Also, something I didn\'t spot in the few reviews I\'ve read, there\'s a magnet embedded in the top too. This is great for carrying a few nails to your work location for example, though obviously it makes sense to pull them off before actually starting any hammering.I bought this as an add on item, to save paying shipping on other goods I\'d bought. At £1.80 this is a real bargain, and it saved me a £3.00 delivery charge. It\'s a handy addition to my tool box and I recommend it to all DIYers.
