Looks fine, but how do it work? :? Put the spargel in the rounded end and pull it through?

Let's say you're right handed. You hold the tip of the spear in your left hand, then with your right hand you clamp the peeler up as high as you intend to remove peel from, then pull away to the end of the stalk. Release and repeat. Clamp, peel, clamp, peel. Unlike green asparagus, white asparagus is very brittle and the skin is tougher, requiring removal; you have far less breakage this way than you would with a conventional peeler.

What do you use to peel asparagus that you're angry at?

It's not difficult! Btw, it has something that looks like a blade at one end. No idea what that's for, I've never used it.

I graduated to a larger asparagus peeler, but it takes up a lot of space in my kitchen. BTW, the knife-looking end on your peeler is probably just that: a way to cut asparagus to length w/o grabbing another knife.
