The big ferrous magnet inside the mic bring the weight up to nearly 1.5 Kg!
|This one is certainly a heavyweight!
The badge is very cool though, and the star and wings look like it might be inspired by Soviet artwork of the era!

According to this eBay seller, the mics were made in Congleton, and they were used as announcer’s mics in boxing matches. I have found nothing to confirm or deny this, so as always if you know more than I do, please get in touch!
But if it fell on your head, then it would certainly be…. a knockout.
