Quality comb, perfect for it's intended use
on 15 July 2014
After growing a beard for the first time in my life, I purchased this comb along with some beard oil in order to keep said beard nicely groomed.
The comb was nicely packaged and has the look and feel of a quality product.
On using the comb I was initially a bit frustrated, but this was due to my own stupidity rather than a flaw with the comb. I speak of the near impossible task of getting this comb open if you have oily fingers from applying beard oil. This frustration can be easily avoided by opening the comb before applying beard oil or washing oil off hands before opening the comb. However, the only sequence of events that seems to satisfy my feeling of oneness with the universe is 1- Apply beard oil, 2- Open comb, 3- Comb beard, 4 -Close comb, 5- Wash hands. Having to change this sequence of events made me deeply unhappy so I decided to use a comb which does not require opening in the bathroom and use this comb for carrying around with me which, of course, is the whole purpose of this comb.
For this purpose the comb is perfect. It is small enough when folded to carry in a pocket and plenty big enough when unfolded to do a good job of combing your hair or beard. There is also a clip which I assume is for clipping onto a shirt pocket like you would a pen. I doubt I will use this feature though. If someone asks to borrow a pen after seeing the clip on my shirt pocket and I tell them I do not have a pen, I will have to show them that it is a comb or they will think that I am lying and just don't want to lend them my pen and that is an awkward situation I could do without. Also, I don't really wear shirts.
As hard as I have tried I cannot envisage a scenario in which I would get slippery fingers and then immediately need to use this comb whilst I am out and about going about my business. I can therefore find no flaws with this comb and award it 5 stars.
I will be purchasing a Kent Brushes Beard and Moustache comb for my bathroom as my current bathroom comb is not of the same quality as this comb. It is also a different colour to this comb, and that's starting to bother me.
