This item is GREAT! Came as described. EXTREMELY Sharp (do be careful!) The entire width of the metal goes securely into the handle, so the Zester is nice & sturdy, unlike other that taper down to a single point and then go into the handle. The cover is excellent so as to not cut yourself looking through other utensils for things. And the small rubber feet on the tip allow you to set that down and Zest straight up & down without slipping on the counter. It has been through the dishwasher numerous times & had not rusted or tarnished.
