Groom to Go

The Go-Comb is a thin, lightweight, metal comb, about the size of a credit card. Made to slide easily into your billfold or pocket, this wallet comb keeps hair looking good when you need it, and stays out of your hair when you don’t. Which makes you wonder: why are regular combs so long? Brooklyn-based Maker Heather Burkman pondered that one night while out to dinner with her uncle. She watched him fix his hair with a traditional comb, then awkwardly put it in his wallet, half still hanging out. Heather didn’t see the need for all that extra comb. That led to the creation of the Go-Comb. With the look and feel of vintage travel combs, Go-Combs feature a variety of colors and designs appealing to both women and men. They are made with a waterproof mix of brass and stainless steel, which resists both rusting and bending. And best of all, you can actually carry Go-Comb without an awkward protrusion from your wallet or pocket.

    While I think the idea of a comb that fits in your wallet is a great idea, I don't see it being so great for the wallet. Fourteen dollars is a lot to shell out for a small comb when I've seen small similar shape combs for just dollars. Grommet, you really need to rethink what your costumers want and what is a reasonable price to pay for an item.

    @Laura Huh.... Well, $14 for a stainless steel comb doesn't seem so much to me, I guess -- perhaps because stainless is a great material, and I like knowing the comb won't break if I sit on my wallet. I'm about to order....

    @Christine L. I agree with Christine- and probably most people. $14.00 is certainly not out of line for a convenient sized, Stainless Steel comb.

    Hi there! Yes as a few folks have pointed out, stainless steel is a quality material that doesn't come cheap, so it provides the strength while allowing the comb to be super thin, taking up about as much room in your wallet as a credit card.

    Thanks for your thoughtful comments!

    @Heather I like the idea of being able to carry this in my wallet without it being obtrusive. I have very fine and thinning hair. Is the comb considered "fine toothed"?

    @Robert Hi! The fine tooth was created for fine hair and facial hair, actually after many requests to create a fine-tooth version. The new design has been very well-received. There are about 10 teeth/inch if that helps.

    @Laura Thanks for your input--as Grommet's CEO I can assure you that we avidly read and often discuss every comment people post during the Launch Conversation. This input is invaluable!

    As you can imagine we get feedback on pricing--not just in comments but also behind the scenes--by watching what Grommets get shared, bought, and also reviewed. If there is one thing I have learned about pricing, is that what is a reasonable price or a good value is a highly individual judgment. Sometimes early adopters of a type of product value that kind of access even if the initial pricing is higher than the existing alternatives on the market.

    We handle and test every product over so have a pretty intimate familiarity of its attributes and any weaknesses and whether the pricing is "sensible." If we see a Maker trying to get a product on the market with an uncompetitive price we also advise them to adjust it...because they won't get a fair read of the market. Bottom line: pricing is complex, interesting, and will never be a science with newly launching products. That is the case here too with Go-Comb. Thanks for your quick input Laura.
