I really liked my stainless steel Model 1 comb, but I it didn't match the rest of my titanium accessories. They have the titanium Model 1 but it has the writing on it, which I was not a fan of. I contacted Chicago Comb Co directly to see if they could do one for me without the writing if I paid extra. They said I don't have to pay extra and I was able to get the titanium comb without the writing for their usual titanium comb price. The service was friendly and awesome.

Is this supposed to have a price on the sheaths? Because as of now it doesn't and that's a good deal if it's included.
correct me if i am wrong but did this just get a massive price hike from the previous $9.99?

Suit yourself.
+1 for a carbon fiber option. I'd also like to see the titanium instead.
Am I the only one who is discouraged by the fact the comb has “TITANIUM“ written on it despite having nothing to do with titanium? I thought the comb was called Model #1 which would have made a way better logo. Also with a product like this no logo would have been the way to go. Great, now I’ve talked myself out of it :(

How many drops are you planning to have which have a picture of the titanium comb which you have never listed it in massdrop. The fact that there are 16 photos and you still need the 3rd one to say titanium is sleezy and seems as though it has only been kept there to attract the type of customers attracted to titanium products. I have no dispute that this stainless steel comb is a great product. But picture 3 is marketing a much more expensive titanium comb which can only be bought from your site. (obviously not a mistake) It's underhanded behaviour towards both your customers and massdrop as a whole. From your previous post I had assumed it was just an oversite but since you have posted it for the 3rd time it is clearly intentional.

My friend, you’ve started with the incorrect assumption that we control this website and the photos on it. Why would you assume this, and then build some kind of theory of our motives on it? I happen to agree that the Ti photo should not be here when that comb isn’t part of the drop (although it *has* been in the past), but we aren‘t in charge of this listing.
Hi @JL2015,
I was from the last drop with the Olive Shell Cordovan sheath(the one before the most recent drop) and received my comb recently. The build quality and design is great. But there is a little thing that is bugging me in regards to the product description.
The Olive Shell Cordovan sheath stated in this drop and your website, is in fact a reverse Black Shell Cordovan. I only noticed this after I received my comb and was in fact slightly surprise. However, it was my oversight at the fact that the Horween Shell chop will only be on the reverse side as the front side is too oily(and beautiful) to be inked.
Olive Shell Cordovan is more niche and rare as compared to Black Shell Cordovan(pretty common). But I was expecting an Olive Shell Cordovan instead of a reverse Black Shell Cordovan when I joined the drop. Ashland Leather product page also indicate that it is in fact Reverse Black (https://ashlandleather.com/products/chicago-comb-with-reverse-shell-cordovan-case). And if you google Olive Shell Cordovan image, you will be able to find some shoes made of these so it does exist.
It probably doesn't matter for people who just want the colour(the smooth side is the front and the rough side is the reverse, so if you look into the sheath you will notice it is black). Both sides are great and unique on its own. But the product description is indeed misleading, and I did feel a little disappointed.

Hi MechChia, thanks for your message. It appears the description here on Massdrop has just been shortened a bit. On our website we give a more complete description including the fact that the interior is black while the outside is an olive-green color with the ink stamp:
"Each sheath is reversed to show the ink stamp of Chicago's legendary Horween tannery, of the few places on earth where this rare leather is created by hand in a process taking six months.  The outside of the sheath has a firm, yet suede-like texture, and the inside of the sheath has an incredibly smooth and shiny black finish." https://www.chicagocomb.com/store/p47/Horween_Shell_Cordovan_leather_sheath_-_Olive.html
I haven't seen Olive Shell in person, although Horween does make a dark green Shell (perhaps some people call it Olive). I apologize for the confusion and hopefully you can still enjoy your Horween Cordovan sheath.
best regards,
John
Hello! I know the website offers free engraving, but does this drop offer it too? If so, how do i add it?
If it is the steel version you are selling why do you show it with the word Titanium etched into it? Seems this has been a problem for atleast 2 years. Nice to know the Massdrop rapid response team is on the case

Yeah this is bullshit - I thought looks titanium, says "TITANIUM", so I joined. I've cancelled. As of right now the picture with the false label is still prominent.
Don‘t but this you can get it a better quality on Alibaba for like 89 cents lol. Its made by robots not indentured servants.
Soko
Saw that but the problem is the edge of the tooth for the Alibaba comb looks slightly sharper, not as rounded as the Chicago Comb. Don't know if you can actually file stainless steel without using commercial-grade tools, but anything works if you have the patience to file it. But then again, it's hard to beat that price.

The copycat combs are junk, with very sharp edges and poorly made. Please check out the photos in this post: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/stainless-steel-comb/talk/203300 Or read the verified reviews for these knockoffs: https://www.amazon.com/EDC-Stainless-Minimalist-Engraved-Tactical/dp/B012JRPOAM/ref=sr_1_48?ie=UTF8&qid=1515038765&sr=8-48&keywords=edc+comb
Is it possble just to order a sheath without the comb?
Where is the Matte Black option?
Houtworm
Was wondering the same...
Bendi
Yeah, i just ordered this one, hoping for the matte black version again in a future drop because i will surely buy it :)
has anyone’s comb shipped from this most recent drop? i got a shipping notification last week but it’s still showing up as ‘label created’
Well I'm in although I'm kind of kicking myself already, I wish the titanium was an option in the drop. I did spring for the Olive Cordovan sheath. Here's hoping some time the titanium with be an option in the future although if this is a lifetime comb I can't see myself needing a replacement. I just don't loose stuff that's more of an investment then a disposable. Heat treating a titanium one would be GORGEOUS !
I'm happy to report that after hearing that my old comb (a no. 1, in SS) was sharp and pulled/tore hair Chicago Comb Co. sought me out and asked me if I would like a replacement. The replacement arrived and is a spectacular comb that I will happily use for a long time (I can see it being handed down for generations if not lost). I am very happy with both the comb and the customer service. Thank you!
M.a.v
M.av., we're really glad to hear you're enjoying the new comb! Best regards, John Chicago Comb Co.
Love my model 1 and use it every day. Definitely get the sheath, it looks really good and fits like a glove. Would like to see the titanium version without the engraving/etching.
I got one in black from the last drop. Very nicely made and the finish was consistent. If you're in the market for a steel comb like this I don't see how you could go wrong getting this one.
I got one 2 years ago and was disapointed. There was several marks / scrapes on it. Perhaps the factory chose to send a poor comb to me in Denmark, rather than a customer in the United States.

Thank you my friend, we're so happy to hear it arrived and that you like it! (N.B., for those wondering, we sent a different style of comb, the Model 2, at his request). Warm regards, John Chicago Comb Co.
Got mine: I'm very satisfied. The quality is top notch. Gave it the old magnet test and it's real deal Stainless steel. Unless I lose it, I'm sure that I'll never need to buy another comb as long as I live.
NealP
Just fyi, there are magnetic stainless steels as well as non-magnetic.

Yeah, I wasn’t aware of just how many ways you could limit your searches. I knew you could sort by applicant and some fairly obvious things, but actually seeing you could sort by city specifically was news to me. I was pretty sure state was there though. I imagine older patents get more difficult to track down, but it should be pretty easy to find a lot of newer ones if you know much about what you’re after given the number of ways you can refine the search there. Actually sort of surprising that a government site makes something more easy to accomplish than expected.
Thanks Professor Pat. We also list these patent numbers on our website at the footer to each page and several other places. Patent litigation is expensive, but we have in-house staff with a legal background, and we've found that the appropriate pressure has caused companies like Amazon, eBay, and Etsy to remove copycat patent infringing listings. Individual stores also don't want to be carrying a product that's an illegal knockoff, and especially since the quality of these copycats is junk.
Here are two photos of the Model 1 Black comb under different lighting conditions. The color is quite a deep, dark graphite black. The graphite black finish is amazing - very smooth and super tough / durable.

Any good for those of us with beards, but no hair on top?

Just looked them up. They are like half the price of these and that's without no massdrop "deal." Thanks for mentioning them.

anyone know of some cheap metal pocket combs that aren't knockoffs of chicago comb(I'd rather not support the knockoffs) I live in canada so the price is almost doubly restrictive

I bought this for $10 when it was available on Amazon, and its amazing https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BZALE18/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Klip
Look into the Zeus thunderbolt on Amazon. Think I got it for $15 and free shipping
Is there any brand engrave on the comb itself? or its just plain stainless steel comb?
Yukita
This particular version of the comb, Model No. 1 Matte, does not have the logo engraved on it. There are other versions of this comb, e.g. Model 1 Classic, which have the logo, but those aren't part of this drop. However, all of the leather sheaths have "Chicago Comb x Ashland" and "Made in USA" stamped on them.
JL2015
Hi JL, noted and thanks for the explanation :)
These are all over ebay for $3 or $4 and you can even get them in actual titanium for a few dollars more. This is a Very bad deal.

I will check my pictures but the chances are extremely slim. Its a comb and i was a teenager and family photos were not a thing for us (to my great sadness) I remembered it only because i loved the finger hole as i could twirl it around my finger. It might have been even more than 20 years as i remeber it and the grand canyon which would put me more at 10 or 12 or almsot 30 years ago. But there is no way to know if that is one or two seperate memories.
I will tell you this. While i dont like the way our patent system is broken i do like us companies. If i find something i will send it to you non publicly so it cant be used to hurt you.
What was the price for the last drop? Was it cheaper than $25.99?

I meant in last drop, I'm aware they do couple of more models

The last drop featured the Model 1 Matte comb only. On a couple of occasions prior to that, Massdrop also offered the Model 1 Titanium. None of the other Model 1 combs have been on Massdrop.
