“The beaver went at it with a dull apprentice”

4.75/5 (12)

Appearance; beaten up and scratched to FRIG. Looks good from afar but far from good. Typically in reference to surface scratches, injection mould tooling marks, etc.

A phrasial spoonerism of “the apprentice went at it with a dull beaver”
