the plastic tips do the job of not scratching the cookware, but you can not bang the utensil on the pans to remove food as that part is made of metal and comes to a sharp point.
Nice ! Handle might not last a long time but the steel will last a lifetime ! I would love to have one about 1 inch wider . I like the sharpness it has , great for any hard surface pans ! You can get under anything and clean the bottom goodness loose !
I can't tell you how hard this ice pick was to find. I searched many local retail outlets, and could not find this item anywhere. I just needed an ice pick as a handy tool for the home. Besides ice, you can use it to start a small hole in a piece of wood to get a eyehook started ; a hole in a piece of drywall for an anchor without having to take out a drill --not as messy. It's just a handy thing to have around the house. Overstock.com is my to go place for hard-to-find items.
