Peter’s Beard – Beard Comb Review

Peter’s Beard - Beard Comb Review

This post was most recently updated on November 7th, 2018

Peter’s Beard is actually a brand which claims to be located in the United States. Most of the combs were shipped from the United States, so this lends credence to that claim.

However, it turns out that the main company is actually a retailer and Peter’s Beard is just a line of products for beard care and hygiene.

The main company turns out to be Insonder, a company located in the Netherlands. They have quite a number of products being offered on the market ranging from beard care and hygiene (which is their Peter’s Beard brand), headphones and portable audio equipment under the name Vanderfields, and even pillows under the brand Dr. Sleepwell.

The brand Peter’s Beard is actually a newcomer. It was established in 2017, the year this review was done, and it is one of their main bestsellers. They do have quite a number of other products under Peter’s beard.

They listed five but in actuality there are basically three, one beard comb, one beard brush and a set with the two. The remaining two are basically the same beard comb and brush just named differently.

Now, just because they are a retailer instead of a manufacturer does not mean that their beard comb is bad. Their beard comb is actually superior to most on the market.

First, we must understand which company manufactures them and knowing what they specialize in. There are quite a few repetitions of the same product under different names, and I just want the public to be informed.

Before talking about the beard comb by Peter’s Beard, let’s talk about what we should be looking for.

  • We have to take into consideration how sturdy the beard comb is. We can find out by knowing what is it made of.

Real wooden combs are superior to plastic or synthetic ones as they are better for your beard hair. Wooden combs are also generally sturdier.

  • The utility and number of teeth on the comb.

For beard combs, having two sides is a better deal. That does not mean that combs with only one side of teeth are bad, only that two-sided combs are more convenient and provide more utility.

  • The toughness of the comb, especially the teeth.
  • The design and sturdiness of the handle.

Features of the Peter’s Beard – Beard Comb

For the beard comb:

  • This beard comb is the lightest comb I have ever used. It weighs almost half of the other combs. It is only 1.4 ounces.
  • The comb is purely wooden and the material used is sandalwood. While I prefer bamboo over sandalwood, this one has great materials since the sandalwood not only looks nice, but it has a fresh wooden scent, meaning that it was not treated with chemicals. This is preferable to chemically treated handles.
  • The comb is two-sided, which is a big plus. One side has the regularly sized teeth usually found with combs, and the other side has the thinner and narrower teeth.
  • The comb is very small and I can actually fit it in my palm. This is very handy and it easily fits in your pocket.
  • The leather case is a nice touch. It looks like a wallet and I find it classier than most.

Pros

  • For the comb design, it works really well. I can remove all tangles with the shorter teeth and then style with the standard side.
  • The handle (or more correctly termed spine since there are two sides of teeth) is quite sturdy. I tried to bend it and found that it was quite sturdy.
  • This comb is resilient and the small size hides its sturdiness and strength! It can comfortably fit inside your pocket.
  • This set has a great package. Peter’s Beard is quite a catchy name, and the black corporate package with the classic brown leather case makes this beard comb look very stylish.

Cons

  • A tiny nitpick, but I am used to cotton bags rather than a leather case. This is because it is easier to find a cotton bag if you misplace it compared to a leather case, since leather cases are quite a bit smaller. Even though I prefer the leather case.

Verdict

The comb itself is one of my favorites. While my preferred wooden material is bamboo, the sandalwood used here is of high quality. This beard comb also has two sides and while nothing beats the application of oil via a beard brush, the side with smaller teeth can substitute for it.

I would highly recommend this beard comb by Peter’s Beard.
