Lightweight. The stick I received was about 245 grams, or about 8.6 oz. No issues using it as a walking stick for extra balance and stability.
However, I will note that when I experimentally leaned more of my body weight into the cane though, the shaft started to bend, which is a contrast to some of the stronger walking sticks I've used.
The surface feels like it's covered with some protective lacquer which should help a bit with the elements.
A note about the copper tip: at least for the stick I received, the copper does NOT cover the bottom of the stick, which is somewhat disappointing.
