Kent 81T Men’s Handmade Beard/Moustache Comb
Simple, cheap, and dependable; that’s pretty much all of what the Kent 81T beard and mustache comb have going for it. For a price just over $5, the Kent 81T is a small yet very functional beard comb. Meant to manage even the most unruly of beards, the fine teeth of the beard comb are naturally flexible and offer an excellent way to spread beard balms evenly thanks to its wooden structure.
The Kent 81T is a handmade wooden beard comb that’s finished with a thin varnish to make the wood grain stand out and provide a unique look to each and every comb. The markings are etched on using a simply heated metal branding plate, and that’s it. The overall look of the comb is straightforward and classy. What makes the comb great is because of its wooden structure, the fine bristles of the comb flex with their natural flexibility and resistance. Also, the fine pores on the wood surface can absorb a fair amount of beard lotion or beard oil and help spread it like a brush on your beard.
The comb is available in different sizes and tooth grades but talking about each comb type could take up a whole column in itself so let’s just focus on the 81. For over six generations, the Kent brand has been making their beard combs the traditional way to ensure exceptional quality and craftsmanship. As simple as it may look, but the Kent brand beard comb carries with it a lot of history.
EQLEF Green Sandalwood Pocket Comb
Compact and lightweight, the EQLEF Pocket Comb is the beard comb that you can discretely stash in your coat or jacket pocket. The comb is made with 100% natural sandalwood that is finely crafted with precision tools and high-quality standards. The advantage that wooden combs over plastic or metal combs are that they tend to be less harsh by offering less resistance and does not snag your hair.
At 10-centimeters by 6-centimeters in dimensions, the tiny beard comb comes with a small and fashionable sleeve that can cover the teeth of the comb. The sandalwood is treated with a beautiful varnish that gives the grain on the wood enhanced contrast. If looks alone sold a product, then this comb will sell like hotcakes. The natural sandalwood paired with the varnish gives each comb a unique look much like how each fingerprint is unique.
Like most beard combs, the wooden construction of the comb allows the easy absorption and spread of beard oils or beard balms. The two-sided design of the comb gives you access to a regular comb or a fine-toothed comb. The wooden construction’s inherent flexibility feels nice on your beard, and it even becomes addicting to the point that you can use it as part of a relaxing exercise.
Rocky Mountain Barber Company Beard Comb
If you want a premium beard comb, you have to pay a premium price; while a sub $15 price may not be called “premium” for combs, it’s more than what it usually costs. What does a premium comb have over your ordinary cheap beard comb? Well, it’s the value and craftsmanship. While combs may get overlooked quite often because of how simple they are, there are a few companies that make beard combs with a passion.
Upon receiving the box, you are greeted with a premium package. Unlike most combs that you get for a low price, the folks at Rocky Mountain Barber Company doesn’t skimp on the packaging. With the premium package, you don’t encounter any cotton bags or bubble wrap once you receive the product. Instead, you get a solid box with solid fiber cardboard walls and premium velvet-like lining. If you’re not too enthusiastic with the packaging, you can quickly dismiss the company for selling you an overpriced comb along with a fancy box. However, once you feel the comb, you start to get where the company is going with this product.
Rocky Mountain Barber Company does not only make great beard combs, but they also add what they can to increase the value of their product. For example upon the first touch of the comb, you feel a smooth touch with a subtle texture, and you notice a smoked wooden smell that reminds you of the good old days. But it doesn’t finish there; the wood is chosen to strike a balance of sturdiness and flexibility. Using the comb is a smooth and problem-free experience. And to top it off, the comb is handcrafted to perfection that every detail is meticulously handmade to add to the value.
Striking Viking Wooden Beard Comb & Case
Continuing with premium combs, the Striking Viking Wooden Beard Comb is more expensive by a few cents than the Rocky Mountain Barber Company Comb and has its unique attributes that set it apart from the Rocky Mountain Barber Company Comb.
First of all, you don’t get a lot of packaging for the product, what you get is a simple box where the comb and its extras come in. The majority of what you pay for comes from the thick and sturdy comb and the nice synthetic leather case. First of all, the case is slim and has the company branding stamped on the façade. The leather is not genuine cowhide, but it looks, feels, and smells otherwise. The comb fits well inside the case, and it looks great. For the comb, it’s designed with a smooth curve that gives the come rigidity towards the main spine of the comb’s teeth. The comb is made of high-quality wood that’s treated with a light varnish to highlight the subtle details such as the fine grain. Each comb looks different from one another because of the different cuts of wood.
The comb is divided into two parts from the middle; the teeth include standard coarse teeth for general grooming and tight fine teeth for getting rid of tangles and knots. The fine grain of the wood allows for efficient oil and beard care product distribution.
Groomarang Beard Styling And Shaping Template Comb Tool
If you’re looking for an all-around beard grooming tool for cheap, then you can get the Groomarang Beard Styling and Shaping Template Comb Tool. Just like its long name, it does all of those things that are in its name. You get a coarse comb for general beard grooming, a fine toothed comb for managing unruly beard hair, a brush for cleaning up, and a curved template that you can use when shaving.
All of these things in one pocket-friendly tool feels like the Swiss army knife of beard grooming. If you think that the plastic build of the comb makes it easy to get caught in the tangles of your beard, then you’re wrong. Groomarang took one step ahead in the design of the comb’s teeth that not only will it allow for tangle removal and taming of beards, but it will also help beard balms and oils to glide over your beard.
The plastic beard comb also has advantages over the wooden beard comb; for starters, the non-porous surface of the comb makes it easy to clean and wash with minimal detergent. Plastic combs are also cheaper than premium wooden beard combs, but I won’t talk about wooden and plastic comb comparisons because it’s like comparing apples to oranges.
Grow A Beard Beard Brush And Comb Set
For a low price of only over $10, you get the best value beard grooming set for your money. Going back to classic wooden combs, this is the only set that comes with a beard brush that’s also pocketable. The whole set is free from any synthetic materials only going for authentic fibers such as bamboo boar fibers for the brush bristles and fine quality bamboo wood for the comb and brush handle.
Grow A Beard is a company that not only takes their products seriously, but they also take care of the environment. Instead of using high-quality wood for their products, the company chose to use farmed bamboo for their wood and brush fibers. Using farmed bamboo than outsourcing high-quality lumber is damaging to the environment because it encourages the felling of trees which take a longer time to replenish than using bamboo. Bamboo can be trimmed, and it will regrow in the fraction of the time it takes to grow a tree. The company saves more money and sell their products cheaper while minimizing their environmental footprint.
The comb is a double toothed style pocket comb that has a large tooth and a fine tooth. You can use the beard brush to take proper care of your smooth beard after managing it with the coarse and fine teeth of the comb.

BushKlawz 4Klawz Beard Comb
Compact, lightweight, sturdy, and versatile; that’s the main goal the BushKlawz 4Klawz Beard Comb. This comb is made for grooming and nothing more. You won’t find any premium packaging here; just a simple cardboard box with inlay and a thin piece of printed cardboard that wraps around the comb. For a little over ten bucks, this comb does more jobs than any other combs in this list. It is because of the four different tooth types instead of the usual two-piece comb combo.
The wood is of average quality, and there’s little treatment done to the wood for the comb. The comb is washed and sanded but skips the vinyl varnish that will give it shine. Instead, the wood is finished in its natural wood finish and branded with the BushKlawz logo in the middle. All around the edges of the comb, you can find the two main combing teeth that are your usual coarse and fine-toothed combs. On the sides, are not-so-deep teeth but have different tooth types than the ones on the main edges of the comb. This gives the comb a lot of versatility to handle any beard at any time thanks to its compact pocket-friendly design.
While it lacks the premium touch of the more expensive combs, it more than makes up for it with a low price and the versatility of four combs in one.
No matter your beard type, you’re going to end up buying a beard comb to take care of your beard. Ordinary hair combs simply won’t be enough to handle the curls and roughness of a beard. Using the incorrect tool for the wrong job won’t do you any good. If you’re looking for a beard comb, focus on how it works and how you will use it. If you’re going to use it for grooming such as managing tangles and for relaxation, then buy a simple wooden comb. If you’re looking for versatility or usefulness, you can get the tool-like combs that you can use for different jobs. Price is not an issue because most combs are priced closely together save for the more premium combs
