Utsumi, 293 Carbon Tail Comb is 9" long. The 293 has 90 very closely-spaced teeth making it ideal for working with finer hair. The pointed tail can be used for sectioning. A Carbon Comb is completely anti-static, so it does not tangle the hair. The teeth are incredibly smooth so they easily move through the hair. The Carbon combs are heat resistant, and can be sterilised by boiling. Made in Japan.
