This Mason Pearson beard comb is my top pick due to it’s unique “rake” style design. The deep grooves and long teeth make it ideal for taming unruly beards.
Your beard is a mess. It’s curly, crazy and all over the place. You, sir, need a beard comb.
Other men let their scraggly beards grow in every direction. This is suitable on only two occasions:
The first is if you’re a hobo. You call the local freeway overpass your castle, and your horse is a shopping cart. Your beard is home to any number of six-to-eight-legged things, and one can’t tell where mustard ends and ketchup begins. And you reek of swamp.
The second is if you live in the Himalayas. Or Alaska. You built a log cabin with your bare hands and every day, you pull a giant, wriggling trout from the local stream. Your best friend is a bear named Freddie and you regularly take beavers out for a romantic dinner of wild nuts and berries.
If you are neither of these two things and desire to instead take real women out on a date, use a beard comb, with a healthy compliment of beard conditioner. Pummel those wiry strands into submission with a few daily strokes of your fine-toothed, gentlemanly comb. Don’t put a bow in your beard or anything (we don’t want to be too extreme); just give your beard a quick combing through once or twice a day with a handy beard comb.
GROW A BEARD.
Wooden Beard Combs
It’s popular in the professional bearding circles to use hand-carved wooden beard combs. The Evolatree company makes some of the most highly respected wooden beard combs, and their collection comes in a number of unique, masculine shapes. Here are my favorites (click the image to see pricing details):
Stainless Steel Beard Combs
The Chicago Beard Comb Company makes an excellent line of stainless steel beard combs, in matte, glossy, and brushed finishes. The craftsmanship on these combs is unparalleled. They come with leather sheaths, and some come with black finishes.
Ox Horn Beard Comb
Here’s a little luxury item for you. A beard comb hand carved from ox horn. This is particularly interesting to me, of of course, due to my alter ego.
This is my favorite beard comb because I love the feel of horn. It is smooth, easy to clean, does not absorb oils, and sturdy. I hear that the hand-carved comb teeth can shatter, however I have never had it happen in my 2 years of owning this comb (conversely, plastic combs tend to loose their teeth easily in my hands).
Metal Wallet Beard Comb
This is a pocket sized glossy metal comb designed for beards with wide teeth. It fits in your wallet like a credit card, so you can keep it with you inconspicuously. A handy comb for the man on the go.
