A couple of years later I had to look back on this purchase and give an honest review. Until now there wasn’t any back scratcher that lasted they always broke and as embarrassing it as is I have to be honest I have a serious case of yeti back hair, which is probably why it’s always itchy. I swear to God, I could pass this thing down to several generations. It’s absolutely not going to break and it’s a relief knowing that. I always keep this thing on my bed when I go to sleep as well I mean it is so well-made I swear to god if there was ever a home invasion, this thing would do nothing less but F them up with 1 swing lol. I’m just so glad that the man making these things came up with the concept, these are seriously great craftsmanship.
There is an old Jewish saying - when you buy - buy good - because when you buy good - you have! This is a perfect example of the saying because it will outlast YOU!
Bought as a present, the recipient was delighted at how effective this scratcher is, quality is excellent well worth the money
So far I have bought 5 ItchThatBitch's. First was the copper heavy duty one to replace all of the broken bamboo and "special" wooden ones that inevitably break. I loved it so much I have been working my way thru buying the heavy duty brass or silver ones for my immediate family. I am about to start on friends. Its funny how the people I have given them to said they probably wont use it, then later tell me they use it all the time! Its the right price to make it a perfect gift idea too!
The scratcher does a generally good job. I would like it to have a larger handle on maybe a future iteration, it tends to feel pretty loose and has more flex than I would prefer.
But when I can get a good grip on the handle it scratches nicely on bare skin or through clothes.
