The BW Utsumi 299 White is made from ULTEM which is a high-strength plastic. It is more flexible than carbon and is static-free, so it does not tangle the hair. It is also heat resistant, so can be sterilised with hot water / steam. Teeth are incredibly smooth so they glide through the hair. It is 9" long with 1.5" medium spaced teeth. The medium spaced teeth are good for all hair types and the comb is ideal for flat tops and working with clippers. The off white / cream color allows you to see the hair clearly against the contrasting color of the comb.
