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.

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:

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.av., we're really glad to hear you're enjoying the new comb!

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,
