The wire is thicker. The business end has more “scratchability” with those flat edges. The file cloth included let’s you fine tune to your desired feel. Can be smooth, can be more like fingernails. It’s up to you.
Nice item, but I thought it would be a little nicer for the cost.
I come from a long heritage of Back scratch lovers in my family. Grew up scouring the Chinese takeouts all over New York in New Jersey looking for the perfect back scratcher… but alas they would always break. Fast-forward to modern day telescoping metal rake back scratchers… which ultimately also always fail!! This is by far the best back scratcher I have ever used… easy to reach all areas and sharp enough to satisfy eve. My masochistic back scratching desires. I am confident it will become an heirloom handed down from generation to generation in my family.
It’s great! It really does a great job! It’s so well made that my grandchildren will be using it long after I am gone!
There should be two or three more tines. It is difficult to scratch without drawing blood.Hard to balance sometimes.
