Good looking, very practical, 3 is the right number
These things are awesome, and amazingly priced. I bought them because they're actually really nice to look at! They're made of bamboo and look really nice around the house, and since there's not much else that could be different about a backscratcher, that was important to me.
I have a wife who just positively hates scratching other people. There are times where I get a bad itch on my back and I BEG her to itch me, and she does....except it's the softest most gentlest form of itching you can imagine. Needless to say it's SUPER unsatisfying and drives me insane.
Now, I just run into the next room or pick one up from my desk and just go to town scratching my itch. It works perfectly!
An important thing to note about these is just how useful having three of them is. I have one on my nightstand, one on my work desk (work from home) and one as a floater around the house. It basically means I'm always very close a back scratcher when I need one, and although I didn't ever consider itchy back as a particularly big problem in my life, this $10 solution absolutely solved it. Thank you!

GREAT backscratchers, if you're willing to invest 2 minutes' work
Well built, properly sealed (lacquer of some sort to keep out moisture and keep it from splintering too easily), and of a very handy length. The fact that this pack includes a FREE (bonus) backscratcher definitely makes this product worthy of five stars... But I just had to dock one star because the ends come so round and DULL, these may as well be "safety backscratchers" (anyone having some experience using "safety scissors" in school will know what I mean).
This was easily remedied by 2 minutes' work with a Dremel and Dremel cutting wheel (on each). Cut perfectly perpendicular to the plane of the teeth or with a slight bevel (for example: forming a /| shape), either way you can make this good set of backscratchers into a GREAT set of backscratchers. I've already given one away to a family member who desperately needed relief from that just out of reach itch.

Get help with that itch
Nice quality. I actually bought them because I wanted the small lightweight backscratcher which came along with the order. It was perfect for my needs. The other backscratchers were excellent quality and not so massive or heavy that I could not use them. I had no complaints about the condition they arrived in. I am totally dependent on the internet for anything I need and I was grateful that something this ordinary but odd showed up after I went searching.

... this BambooMN Brand b/c it works and it works great, probably like 20 more and lay it all ...
I would actually buy more of this BambooMN Brand b/c it works and it works great, probably like 20 more and lay it all about the house because..... The wifey boss is always itching her back, so these save me, because I'm lazy, from having to scratch her back ALL THE TIME and 4 of them, and for about the price of a lunch meal!! What whattttt. Now all I need is to get the portable one so that she can scratch her back out and about.

Should be thinner and longer. Excellent quality and made in USA though...
For my taste the larger sticks are too wide and too short. The smaller stick is much better and is the only one out of the set I use but it is still shorter then I would prefer. Good quality. Made from super strong bamboo. Plus made in the USA!

An EXCELLENT back scratcher
An EXCELLENT backscratcher. Although at first glance it looks like it would be too smooth to provide a satisfying "scratch," it is actually just right. It would have been even better if it was few inches longer. As it is, you've got to go over your shoulder for most of your back and then behind your back to get to the bottom third. STILL, that's not really a complaint; The "scratchability" factor is the key thing, and this one wins. PLUS, you get more than one for your money! When I was looking at backscratchers on amazon, I saw you could easily pay a higher price for ONE backscratcher than you would pay for this set of four.
I noted someone said they received only one backscratcher. I received four... three regular and a "travel-sized" one, which is simply a thinner version of the regular one, although still the same length.
I also noted that someone said to beware of splinters. I have encountered no such problem. The bamboo backscratcher is covered in a thick coat of varnish or lacquer to help prevent that situation.

Quality bamboo back scratchers
Quality. Effectiveness. Durability. Redundancy (or one for multiple rooms). All at a very reasonable price.
Having lost my smaller version of one of these when I moved several years ago, I just can't believe I never got around to replacing it. (One aspect of) happiness, is being able to comfortably scratch your back.

Better than my old ones...and there are 4
I love these things, great price and work even better than my original. They really get those spots on the back you can't reach. I don't see any rough spots on them, they have a minimal coverage of varnish...fine for back, feet and reaching those packages on the top shelf...yes, I use them for that too.

These are simple but effective. I'd buy them again. Can't beat the price. Took off 1 star for the deep curve in the scratching part. The long curve makes it more difficult to scratch with your shirt on. But this is a universal problem for all back scratches in my opinion. I would buy again.

I returned it
I returned it because the bamboos were not sanded well, it hurts to use it on skin directly. You will be fine if you use it on top of your clothes.
