Back story on how the ACE pocket comb came to be. In 2011 a 3 letter agency came to me and wanted some pocket combs for field agents that worked in areas that they could not carry conventional weapons and needed items that would pass off as nothing but what it was....defensive in nature and sublime. Things like tactical pens, lightweight impact tools etc but even these could raise a eyebrow if seen. I often show people the comb and ask "What is it" they always reply "It's a comb" grinnnnnn ha ha.
So they bought a few of the original pocket combs with the clip. After some testing they conducted they like what the comb could achieve in terms as defensive tool and the fact that it was a very nice grooming tool. The downside was the "Pocket Clip" they got profiled and often asked what kind of knife they had or why where they carrying a "Knife".
Upon reading the report they sent me I told them to hang tight. I took a old school original plastic ACE pocket comb made a drwaing and then with some modifactions to the "Tine" spacing and length of tines I had a prototype cut, sent to the shop and finished in short order.
I tested it in various ways, in numerous situations in a attempt to replicate what someone in that capacity would encounter. Handed off to a friend who had business in Washington D.C. this person would be passing through numerous security checkpoints. Some of these checkpoints with have a level of scrutiny that borders insanity due to the level of secrecy involved in these AO's. Only one in as many as twenty checkpoints did the comb get retained and not allowed to pass, the security officer that took a interest only did so when he handed the comb back and felt the tines and commented that this item was considered duel purpose, my tester acknowledge that fact. The security guy asked him where is came from and he said it was a gift from his mother and he did not know were she ordered it from. It made it through security at a strip club that forbids any types of items except for crisp one dollar bills...ha ha. It really is in the end a COMB so there it is there?

Once my testing was complete I sent a report and the prototype to the agency. They put it through a battery of test and came back with a nice little order and a thanks for developing a much needed item that could prove to save the day. If it as ever been used by them I will never know, but just the thought of making a difference is reward alone.
The Hornet Comb modeled after one of my best knife designs (Not currently in stock but coming soon)
Also I hear people complain about the price and I will just say that I do my best to bring a honest price for a good tool. I have to have the comb water jetted which to begin with is not cheap, at the moment I am looking at a new water jet cutter but the place I go does such a good job paying the price they ask is worth it. The fact will always remain that 6LA4V MILSPEC Titanium is very expensive and extremely difficult to work with. Also because I have to carry the overhead which sometimes is quite a bit I have to get the return to ensure I can keep them in stock. I assure you I am not getting rich selling pocket combs, I do it more as a service to my brothers in arms to keep the bad ass bearded guys looking good. In the end you will always get what you pay for!
