This product is sloppily made with welding drip marks on both sides of the bomb where as pictured, there are none. I also measured it at 3.5' tall. It is NOT 4' which they described it as. Is it cute? Yes. Worth purchasing? Not so much.

    Overall a good solid piece that should last forever, but much smaller than expected. I'm happy with it but I believe it is over priced for the size.

    Comments about UncommonGoods F Bomb Paperweight:

    LOVED this item...unique design, very cool. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars was: 1) price----for size, I feel its overpriced---but, since many of us are going in on cost, we purchased anyway--2) residue/dirty----everytime I took out of the box, I had metal residue all over me. Luckily my husband used pneumatic hose to clean item, then he sprayed a clear coat over it so it doesn't leave metal residue on my boss's hands.

        My husband loves it! He's trying to quit smoking and his usage of that word has increased. When I saw this, I knew it was the gift for him. He said he'll put it in his office as a conversation piece, and a reminder to keep working on quitting.
        It's really well done and very heavy.

            I thought this would be larger, like the size of a softball. But it's about the size of a golf ball. Doesn't really matter, as it's solid metal and heavy, will still work great as a paperweight.
