This comb has a great weight to it. I used to use plastic combs that you can get for fifty cents or so, but this comb is much more substantial. It does what it is designed to and looks great on the bathroom counter top. You could get a plastic comb for much, much cheaper, but a man who has a comb like this is a man who cares about quality and things that last. He's a man who pays attention to the smallest details. And that's the kind of man people want to be around. It's an instant conversation starter and people will be sure to notice.
