I purchased 2 of these. One for my husband and one for my son. While my husband (old man) thought it was clever, my son (37) was thrilled! He brought it to work, where most of his coworkers have beards, and told everyone where to get it. They all thought it was a great idea!More > < Less


Personal yet practical

My husband had the best reaction to this gift! So difficult to shop for, it turned out to be a very personal and fun gift that he enjoys showing off to friends! It also serves a great purpose when he has been too lazy to trim his mustache!More > < Less

He knew what it was. Not sure if he will use it, but it made for a fun Christmas present. Should have included this picture.

About Whisker Dam

Drink and Dry

The Whisker Dam is a copper mustache guard that lets you drink like a gentleman. It fits neatly over a pint glass, highball, or mug, keeping your facial hair dry as you drink.

When brothers Ellery and Jeff Mulock bet on who could grow a better mustache, Ellery won and decided to keep his handlebar. That upper lip fixture eventually earned him an unusual inheritance: a ceramic mug with a built-in mustache protector.

Turns out these kinds of guards were quite popular—along with facial hair—centuries ago. With mustaches again on the rise, Ellery and Jeff decided a revival was in order.

Made in the USA from 100% copper, the Mulocks' version honors its origins with embossed lettering and a weathered patina. They hand stamp, finish, and package every Whisker Dam from their San Diego shop. Even though it’s all copper, a non-toxic coating keeps any metallic taste out of your mouth.

With this ‘stache saver, you’ll have an always-tidy upper lip.
