5.0 out of 5 stars Bakery pin: perfect for everyone, October 12, 2008
On the current Amazon page, three Vic Firth rolling pin models are listed together -- this review is for the bakery pin, which is about 20" long and of uniform width, without separate handles.

I wanted to mention one thing explicitly that I hadn't seen in other reviews -- this is a great rolling pin for all hand sizes and strengths. If you have arthritis or a hard time gripping handles, this rolls nicely under the palm & fingers with plenty of room for your 12" dough in between. If you have large hands, the wide ends are much more comfortable to hold than the narrow, tapered ends of a French pin. Kids can get leverage on it, since there's no spinning handle axle or specialized technique required. Everyone in my family can use this rolling pin and get excellent results. That, to me, is a terrific feature.

And yes, like everyone else has said, it provides great control, is effortless to maneuver, and really attractive. It's easy to clean, and needs no more attention than your butcher block; just condition with a little oil occasionally, and don't soak it in water for long periods of time.
