Wood is great. But, sometimes, steel is the right way to go. More often than not, wood is rigid, fixed, and inflexible. Steel, on the other hand, is usually a much better ingredient for a flexible construction, if done right. And, for the most part, WOVTE Bear Claw is done right.
Made of 100% stainless steel, the model’s rake won’t rust, break, bend, or deteriorate after a year or two. The rubber handle is soft and it fits perfectly in your hand.
That said, what makes this scratcher what it is isn’t the cushion grip handle nor the metal rake. More importantly, it is the telescopic nature of the handle. When folded, the tool adds up to 8.4 x 1.5 x 0.6 inches in overall dimensions, making it easily the most portable entry on our list.
Of course, an 8-inch long accessory won’t allow you to reach every part of your back. Fortunately, the aforementioned telescopic quality of the handle lets it extract all the way to 23 inches, making for a really cool scratcher that can be used to effortlessly access any part of the body. Add to that the bear claw imitation rake and you get an accessory that brings with it nothing but pleasure and satisfaction.
In conclusion, WOVTE Bear Claw is the most flexible and personalized option in this review. Thanks to the telescopic handle, this is also the best travel model. It does get a bit wobbly when extended to its full length. But, other than that, this is the back scratcher to go for.
