The Made in China sticker plastered to the cork side of the ruler certainly defeats the purpose of buying a cork-backed ruler. It can be removed... along with some of the cork under it. Displeased.

Metal ruler, one side is inches, the other side is centimeters. It is as advertised. The only thing is the UPC is stuck on the cork with a horrible adhesive. Not that uncommon but this is 2013, can't we use a upc sticker that can be removed?

They put a permanent sticker on the cork back, and carefully removing it gouged the cork. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY.

It is a ruler. It is for measuring. It is made of metal. It has a cork backing. So far it has measured things and do that quite well. I bought it for what a ruler is for, not for what it is not for. It has passed the tests that a ruler should pass.

I always loved these rulers when I used them at work and was so irritated that the kids only had pieces of broken plastic rulers to use, so I invested and got each of them their own ruler. They love it (they can write their names on the cork underside), they can do all the things that kids aren't supposed to do with rulers and do anyway without breaking the ruler; they're easy to read and don't lose their ink...need I go on!

The best part - when I bought their ruler I got one of the longer ones for me. My sister tells me that all I need now is a habit to complete my old-fashioned teacher outfit...I already have the disposition and the ruler. Hmph!

Rather well made. No casting marks, no scratches, no sharp edges.
Measuring markings are engraved into it instead of just printed, which is great.
Markings do not start at the beginning of the ruler. There is an unmarked space.

It is not very thick, it flexes quite a bit, but it's better than having it be thick and heavy.

The cork backing is not flush with the edges of the ruler, so when placing it to draw a line, the actual ruler part is elevated slightly.
This is to protect the cork backing from being damaged. There is a sticker on the cork, which has to be removed carefully, or it will take off some cork with it.

So far I am pretty happy with this. Would recommend.

I have a previous iteration of this product at home and bought some recently for my office. Either the metal or the cork or both are thicker on my original than on this one. It works fine as a straight edge, and the measurement markings are deeply etched and easy to read, but if you need something that will be rigid, this is not the right ruler. It both bends and twists. Company ships promptly.

It is what it says it is except...it is quite thin and flexible. I was expecting something a bit sturdier and stiffer - less "bend" to it. The markings are clear to my eye. Have not attempted to remove the "Made in China" label on the cork backing and probably will not after one reviewer remarked that removing that sticker damaged the cork backing. Was expecting something a bit MORE but I think it will be adequate.
