This cube is so cool! Perfectly machined, smooth and sharp, heavy to hold, hard to put down and pulls your pants down when you walk around with it in your pocket... 👍😁
Was very impressed with this cube, including how it came packaged in such an attractive box in which to store it when not showing it to others.
It was fun to receive my package from Trans Metals. The tungsten cube was exactly as represented, measuring 1.5 inches on a side, and weighing one kilogram, or a bit over two pounds, three ounces. With a density of 19.25, tungsten weighs the same as the same volume of gold, and feels unusually heavy for such a small cube of metal. Lead and silver seem very light weight by comparison. The price may seem expensive to the non-collector, but tungsten is notoriously difficult to work, with an insanely high melting point of 3,400 C. Tungsten carbide drill bits are the toughest in the world.
The tungsten cube comes elegantly packaged and presented in a nice box with slip cover, though I choose to keep the naked silver grey cube on my desktop with the provided stand that holds it up at an angle. It’s fun to invite people to pick it up, and watch their reaction. It’s almost like lifting Thor’s hammer. The shipping took only two days.
