No. 1 Back Scratcher

Almost heaven . . . that’s where we’d rank a good back scratch. So, sooner or later there had to be a Colonel-inspired back scratcher. And, this handmade one’s a dandy. American oak handle with leather lanyard for hanging. Bridle leather pad supports three double-pronged solid brass “scratchers.” Makes a great gift.

May be personalized with three initials in solid brass plate on the reverse side. 18 1/4″ long. Product packaging includes cotton canvas dust bag and gift box.


Handcrafted in Lynnville, TN USA.

  2. This is the best back scratcher known to man! I bought one a few years ago for my husband and he loves it and uses it daily. We have a second home so as part of his birthday surprise, I bought him a second one so he never has to be without a good scratch!

  3. Absolutely love my back scratcher! My girlfriend purchased it as a gift for my birthday. A year after purchase the handle broke. I contacted them and they repaired it free of charge. Patty was great and very helpful!


  4. Oh my! The groan heard throughout the Universe was me using this out of the box for the first time tonight. I coveted this for Christmas but no one got it for me – poor me…. I was purchasing something else and rationalized purchasing it and I DO NOT regret it at all. It is very likely that I will rationalize buying a second one for my work office the next time I buy something from the Colonel.

    Fantastic product and worth every cent. Enjoy the moon pie too!

  5. I ordered this item personalized as a gift for my husband. It arrived with the gold personalized plate scratched all over. When I called to get the scratched plate replaced, I was told I had to pay for shipping cost to have it sent back. Very poor customer service when scratched plate should have never been sent out that way. New plate arrived unscratched. Cost me extra $ 10 for shipping though- just beware poor customer service!

    Note from Col. Littleton: We have contacted this customer in order to correct this occurrence. Thank you for sharing this feedback.

  6. I order three items from THE Col. The writing desk, the back scratcher, and the fly swatter. I had each one engraved. I was surprise at how well done the letters were and the deepness of each one. JUST PREFECT! This Back Scratcher really looks evil at first. You wonder if you dare use it on your flesh. But let me tell you now you will go OMG. It feels soooo good! All the items I purchase were either Birthday or early Christmas gifts. I am really thinking about buying more Fly Swatters and Back Scratchers. All items are excellent and worth the money.

  7. gets the job done
    I love this back scratcher. If you have sensitive skin you might want something else!


  8. The ultimate back scratcher
    My back always itches. I’ve purchased dozens of back scratchers from Chinese gift shops, and recently discovered the portable back scratcher, also very good.

    On a recent trip to Asheville, NC, I was in the general store and discovered the Col. Littleton back scratcher shown here. I tried it and loved it. Because of the price, I almost didn’t buy it, but in the end decided I had to have it. I’m glad I relented. This is a great back scratcher, and works even through a t-shirt.

    If you like a hard, vigorous back scratch, this item is for you. It looks like it’ll last for generations, and while it is probably a bit overbuilt and overpriced compared to other back scratchers, I am endlessly glad that I changed my mind and bought it and that it waits for me on my night stand!

Our Story

Our Warranty
Our Warranty

We are committed to producing quality, handcrafted products that showcase our time-honored standards of excellence and deep respect for the Americana tradition. Col. Littleton products go through rigorous testing and numerous quality inspections before being shipped to our customers. Should you receive a Col. Littleton product that is defective in materials or workmanship, you can count on us to make it right. Our guarantee is limited to the cost of the product itself. It also does not cover normal wear and tear. We feel if you just plain “wore it out,” you got your money’s worth. Also, we cannot be responsible for an item which has suffered through alteration, damage due to improper cleaning, improper use, mishandling or accident. If we made a mistake in personalizing your product or if the product is defective in materials or workmanship, of course we’ll replace it. Otherwise, personalized products are not returnable.

Our Leather

Leather is a passion for me. There are more kinds of leather and leather processing out there than you can shake a stick at. You can mold leather into just about any shape or form. You can make every hide look just alike. You can dye it green, blue or even pink. You can apply a finish, coat it, spray it or make it look slick and shiny. That’s not what we’re about at Col. Littleton. To me the beauty is in the naturalness of the leather. People always comment to me about the special “feel” of our leather and how it becomes even more beautiful after it has some wear on it. It’s all about our leather process. When you buy Col. Littleton leather goods, you’re buying, for the most part, full-grain American vegetable-tanned steer hide that has received a minimum of alteration. We don’t apply a finish to hide character markings. The way I see it, every marking tells a story and covering them robs the piece of its life and character.

I see a real resurgence in the country today for products made in America. Our focus is to design and create products that speak to the time-honored traditions that have made this country great such as handmade craftsmanship, authentic rich leathers and quality workmanship. There’s a nostalgic feel about the products we make . . . most of them could have been made 100 years ago and many are made using turn-of-the-20th-century methodology and machinery. Our products are true Americana; forged as our forefathers intended by people who care and take pride in making a beautiful product.
