The scratcher is about an inch and a half wide. It would take me an hour to scratch my whole back. I need a back scratcher the size of a human hand, and a monkey’s hand.
Have had the scratcher over a week now. My first few uses I found it like nails (not human) were scraping down my back...any applied pressure and it hurt. I contacted seller and he suggested using the sandpaper sent with the order to soften the teeth. It worked. There is a learning curve in using this...gentle pressure is better or at an angle if you want a harder scratch. After a week, I've decided I am happy with the purchase and find myself reaching for it often before falling asleep.
Not your average back scratcher. Not only is it a shiny, twisted, stainless, work of art; but it works well too. An elegant conversation piece and nice gift idea for those who have everything. Nice work!
My husband loves this back scratcher! Very well made and worth the extra expense. Would definately recommend!
