Oh Massdrop, I don't know what to say except that I'm so sorry that I'm too dedicated to shit posting. But that's why I love this site. It took me half an hour to remember this :D


I felt kind of bad spending so much on a comb but something about it really appealed to me. I've had it for a few weeks now and it's great. It feels solid, like I'll have it forever. All USA made too I'm pretty sure. I don't feel bad at all about buying it, this thing is bad ass. Brass and leather? Always looks dope.
Hi there! How would you maintain your comb, in particular the brass? I would like to get a comment back from the producer of the comb. Had never really any experiences with brass. Thanks!

Thanks a lot! It is more detailed than i asked. Perfect customer relations. This comb is clearly the best decision I made so far on Massdrop. Looking forward to your next drops. Keep it up!

You're absolutely welcome. Thank you very much for your support and enjoy your comb!
Does anyone know what type of naval brass this uses? (i.e. lead-free naval brass)

This particular Brass is C464 Naval Brass and does contain trace amounts of Lead. It is listed as a "lead free" brass by the manufacturers I have looked into and ordered from. Other alloys have as much as 50 to 60 times more Lead and I pay quite a bit more money for C464 Brass for that reason. Great question!

For reference, if you tripled the Lead content in C464 Brass it would still be EPA approved to use as piping for drinking water.
Does anyone know how big the teeth are compared to a Kent 82T folding comb?
Can anyone provide a picture of this with something in it for scale (pocketknife, quarter, etc.), or as part of their carry?  Just looking to get some idea of size.

Thanks for those.  I ended up buying this, and it did end up being bigger than expected when it arrived.  It is pretty awesome though, and fits in well with my current everyday carry.

This is a very nice and consistent everyday carry. :)
Wanted to add to the praise below...this thing is now living in my right pocket and I don't see that changing soon. Cannot wait to see the patina form on the brass.


Just got mine today and "Wow".

This was a bit of an impulse buy, as are so many of our little carry around bits and bobs - the seemingly silly EDC items that we try to justify a 50$ price tag with the hope that it's "buy-it-for-life" quality.

So often we are disappointed.

This is not one of those times. Full grain leather, excellently cut and burnished edges, clean pressed lines for the bordering and text, and of a lovely weight to hold in hand.

But above all, it succeeds in the details. The comforting and all important small things that separate the "eh I guess it is ok, at least it was on sale" purchase trials from your treasured possessions. Perfectly uniform and rounded teeth, the tightness in the hinge, no burrs or rough edges to the metal, no missed spots to the brushed finish, the rotation into the sheathe does not scrape at tip as it slides in nor is the sheathe too roomy either.

This sounds like a love song, but you know the feeling. When everything is just as you were hoping for. The satisfaction of buying a carefully and well crafted product.

In functionality, it combs well. I have long, straight, very determined Asian hair. Combs that are too wide toothed do little more than break up tangles, too fine and they threaten to clog up just out of sheer follicle density. This is a nice balance that works well for me.
Got mine today. Great quality. Solid comb, nice leather, heavy and well finished. Better than expected. Will be used on my full beard. Top-notch product! Worth the extra customs (shipped to Germany).

Btw; c'mon Massdrop, we need a EU warehouse. Even European products are being shipped from US.
Dang it I just missed this! I saw it today at my university and wanted to wait till I got home to join the drop but lost track of time. I am a sad camper now. =( Maybe next time.

It's live again.
Very nice looking comb, but my beard is far too long for combs, only brushes for me.
Just recently received mine. I thought spending $45 on a pocket comb was a bit questionable but now that I have it, it's as cool as my pocket knife. And built very rugged so I know it will get passed on someday. A very cool item indeed!
Is the leather case made of full-grain, top-grain, or genuine grade leather?
