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.

      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.

                Great paperweight for your office...small in size so it fits in any space...but a good weight at the same time to keep those papers down. Just a really clever concept!
