Every signature Can You Handlebar comb is cut, assembled, and sanded by hand. This attention to detail insures not only the heirloom quality of each individual comb but also that it meets the specific grooming needs of your facial hair. The wide teeth are designed to allow you to comb your beard without fear of tugging, pulling or hair loss. The painstaking hand-sanding process is of particular importance in removing any sharp edges from the wood so that each pass of the comb through your beard hair is smooth and free from any snags, cuts or breakage to the hair.
Once the sanding process is complete, the comb is dipped in a mixture of linseed and mineral oils. This mixture enhances the natural color of the wood, protects the comb, and allows the wood to remain porous. Over time, the wood will absorb any product used in the beard as well as the hair’s natural oils, seasoning the comb and giving it a color and patina unique to each user.
Paduak (pronounced pah-duke) is an African wood that is moderately heavy, strong and stiff, with exceptional stability. Paduak presents in a unique reddish orange color that will deepen over time. This is the natural coloration of the wood, not the result of any stain or paint, and is quite exceptional to behold in person.
The handle is made from Wenge (pronounced when-gay), another wood of African origin. The wood grain of the Wenge handle runs perpendicular to the grain of the Paduak body, which adds strength and stability to the overall structure of the comb as well as providing a unique two-toned look. The comb is designed for strength, durability and longevity, insuring you years of proper grooming.
The comb measures just over 3.75 inches wide and just under 2.75 inches tall.
