I wanted to give this hammer a 5 star rating, but I can't. I used it to open a bottle and then, after tossing my long blond tresses over my shoulder, tossed it toward the counter. Unfortunately, it touched down lightly on the counter and then returned to me at full speed. Instinctively, I ducked and it went through the window behind me, leaving broken shards of glass in the flowerbeds below. Very quickly, it returned again through the next window, breaking that one, too. I ducked again and this time, it went through the refrigerator door. More broken glass, dripping liquids of various colors, and a real mess. Odin didn't make no fool, so the third time it came back to me, I caught it.
I suggest placing it gently on your countertops.
