I was recommending this little fella to a friend the other day and, upon pulling up the site, was totally dismayed at the poor ratings this comb has received. The Zeus Natural Horn beard Comb is something I use every morning to make sure my whiskers are tangle free and headed in a southerly direction.
I feel like the comb is the perfect size for some light man-scaping, and the width and spacing of the teeth feel amazing on the old "chin"-chilla. None of mine were broken or chipped, but I see how that could definitely be a problem. Pretty sure Birch Box would replace it if that were the case.
Now, based on the previous reviews, I feel I have to address the "smell" others have talked about. I'd be lying if I said the comb came out of the package odor free. I just don't know I'd agree it smells bad.
To me it's like the faint aroma of gun powder, or newly tanned leather, and, while I wouldn't plan on marketing a cologne after it, the comb smells like something we bearded types generally like.
I have also found that after a few months of almost daily use, I think it has dissipated so that I don't smell anything when I use it. It's a pleasure to run this comb through my beard.
