This is the largest of the balicombs made today; prior to 2010, balicombs in Batangas were only made in the 19 cm / 7.5" size. We commissioned the first larger balicombs and they've been a resounding success! This size would be great for a hair professional. The combs are hand ground and the teeth are sawed into the stainless bar with a hacksaw, entirely by hand. This takes a great deal of skill to get right; one slipup and the stainless bar has to be scrapped.

The wenge is dark brown and black; it is glossy from the buffing wheel and has not been hand finished.

I would charge an additional $39 to hand finish the wood on this comb as it would take a great deal of time and effort to work around the bone.

I finish the wood with oil and wax after careful hand sanding to 2000 grit. This gives the wood a matte finish, but also removes all excess buffing compound and dust, and greatly improves the fit and appearance of the wood.

You can see the wave-like figuring inherent in wenge clearly here.

The comb was well ground; maybe a 9/10 in my book.

This is a top notch balicomb in the rare 29 cm size; a Pinoy Steel original. $175. Please add $39 for hand finishing.
