Let me preface my review by saying that I was on a perpetual search for a good shoe horn. I have tried them all ... plastic, metal, wood, short, tall. I discovered that I like tall shoe horns and my experience hinted that wood performed better than the other material options. I found the #E-8100 on Amazon.com and gave it a try.
When I initially saw the shoe horn, I was greatly impressed by its quality and appearance. The product is a display of skillful woodworking. The wood has a nice glow to it and I could not find any wood working imperfections. Some of the other reviewers mentioned a leather string for holding the shoe horn. My shoe horn did not arrive with a leather string, instead it has a richly textured brown string that looks and feels nice. For appearance and workmanship quality, I give the #E-8100 an A+ (A+ being the highest and E being the lowest grade). In fact, the shoe horn looks so nice that I store on in full view on the hall tree.
I've had this for six months, and have been happy with it. It's nice and stiff; no creaking or bending when using. I haven't noticed any problem with cracking or damage, as some of the other reviewers have observed-- I use it in the garage, and there have been numerous occasions when I've accidentally dropped it on the hard concrete floor, with no problems.
If I had to pick out anything about it that could be better, I note that it's somewhat narrow, not very curved, and has a symmetrical handle, so in a dark place (e.g. a garage), it can be hard to tell which side is the front. Would be nice if something about the shape made it easier for my hand to tell which way 'round it goes.
Perfect! The right length, well made, & good looking. Bought 3 & put them around the house in bedroom, mudroom, & backdoor... wherever shoes come on & off. Great Amazon value for a 67 year old puppy having trouble bending over!
