All-American Comb

To call this laser cut, hand-finished, Made for a Lifetime comb a "metal comb" is like calling a Ferrari a car. Founders and childhood buddies John and Tedd started Chicago Comb Co. to make everyday objects that were more than everyday–they create enduring works of sculpture and design right here in the USA. Blending artisan manufacturing methods and the latest technology, each comb is precisely cut from Kentucky stainless steel and Ohio titanium to stand up to daily use. John and Tedd also wanted to kickstart some local manufacturing in their native Chicago area and to make a product that could be treasured across generations. To make your comb even more memorable—or if you’re gifting it—you can add a custom engraved monogram. Chicago Comb also helps you protect each comb in style. Their Horween leather sheaths are a gorgeous, custom fit addition. Each is vegetable-tanned and hand-oiled in Chicago at a 100-year-old family leather tannery. The full-grain leather ages well, to match the long life of your comb. Whether taming wild bedhead or straightening up a ‘stache, Chicago Combs are a lifetime styling companion for any man.

    I have currently have two aluminum combs. The primary home comb, made in Sweden, is a standard barber's style with two types of tines - Standard and Fine. I use only the fine end for my daily hair combing. The second comb (Swedish "Countess" comb no longer available) is a cheaper manufactured, who knowns where, and has a tendency to bend out of shape easily.

    Several questions -

    I currently have two aluminum combs. My primary barber's style (two types of tines) comb was made in Sweden (no longer available), while the second comb was made who known where - is pure junk (thin - bends). I use the Swedish "Countess" combs solely at home, having lost too many traveling.

    Several questions -

    1. Can your model No.1 be manufactured with the thin tines?

    2. Can model No.2 be used a a standard travel/pocket comb.

    3. Can model No.2 be purchased in longer lengths? (I like the style)

    3. Thickness of your combs - Do they have a tendency to easily bend?

    4. Are the tines hand polished to a smooth finish to prevent and pulling?

    @Alexander Thanks for reaching out! Thank you for the product recommendations! Right now the model no. 1 comes with medium width tines and the model no. 2 only comes in a shorter, compact size. We will definitely keep these in mind for future consideration.

    The model no. 2 fine tooth comb makes a great travel/pocket comb, especially with the sheath. Since you mentioned only using the fine teeth of your current swedish comb, the model no. 2 would be a versatile hair and beard comb for you.

    The comb is made of high quality stainless steel and is very durable, stronger vs. aluminum. With the fine teeth model no. 2 we would recommend keeping the comb in leather sheath if you keep it in a bag, etc...

    In regards to the finish, we machine and hand finish all of our combs in our Chicago workshop ensuring a smooth finish, no snagging or pulling, The classic comb comes in a matte finish with the teeth rounded and you will see the teeth are shiny, mirror at the base ensuring a smooth comfortable experience.

    On a side note, my grandfather was from Sweden and we're big fans of modern, Scandinavian design!

    Appears my questions did not go through -

    1. Can model No.1 be manufactured with fine-tooth tines.

    2. Model No.2 appears to be a mustache/beard comb - Can it be used as a standard travel/pocket type. Concerned about bending.

    3. Are any other lengths available i either model, especially No.1.
