Eh! The head is made of the remainder of the parking lot olive tree, complete with worm holes. It's very dense and resistant to splitting, so it's good for this. Mediocre materials aside, this mallet is the best I have felt for tapping things into alignment. Rubber/dead blow mallets are spongy and do not work with confidence. Steel damages the surface and is bouncy. Plastic is even bouncier. Lead makes a great mallet for non-organisms.
This one feels nice. I left the handle with the tooled finish for maximum caveman.
