First, the glass head looks really cool, and is a great handle. The needle is thin but very sturdy. Definitely my favorite poker, so I bought five of them this time. Only issue is they roll off the table
a very handy tool
These are slightly thicker than a paperclip, so they don't bend *quite* as easily. If I used more force it could bend though, so be careful not to use it for anything more than poking out a screen or lighter-duty poking. The nubbin at the end is neat and gives more grip than bending the end of a paperclip...
Everyone should own a pokerpelli! I purchased this one for my boyfriend after he commented on mine. Very strong and love the glass end! Bye bye paperclips!
