I'm very happy with this backscratcher for many reasons! It feels like it's sturdy enough to last a lifetime, and the sharpness of the scratcher 'teeth' was PERFECT right out of the box -- I didn't have to tweak it at all. I just started scratching. The only thing I'd like to figure out is how to keep my hands from having a metallic smell after touching the backscratcher. It isn't a very potent smell, but it is slightly offputting. I thnk it's only when I touch the copper, though. The stainless steel doesn't have any odor.
I’ve owned all types of backscratcher but this is something different...I love it!
My father is always asking me to scratch his back. He has had back scratchers in the past but they never worked well. After discovering this one online that was made to feel like fingernails, I decided to order it; I also loved that it was hand made. My dad is obsessed; my brothers are too. In fact, they started using it in the middle of the restaurant we were at, much to my mom’s and my disgust. My dad is having surgery soon so that pliability of the handle is going to come in handy. This definitely lives up to if not exceeds my expectations and I would recommend it to others in the future!
I really love this back scratcher! It feels great, much more like actually getting scratched by someone (without the bitching though. Yay!) It's a bit long, but I probably just need to adjust it a smidge.
