This pick has a rich dark patina which would polish up nicely if that is your preference. There are some use marks consistent with its age. There is no plate loss.

Nut picks have other uses! They work well with canapes, hors d’oeuvres and marvelously in drinks substituting as cocktail picks! Adorn your martini in style!
