Keep Combed, America.
If you've ever carried a comb in your back pocket or cut one in half to fit it in your wallet before, this is the comb for you. If you’ve ever opened a beer, this is the comb for you. If you’ve ever watched Netflix on your phone while eating cereal, this is the comb for you.
The Headgehog is a stainless steel multi-function comb the size and thickness of a credit card. It fits in your wallet so you can carry it with you everywhere. You can straighten, shape, or detangle your glorious locks to have the finest head of hair and impress all your suitors at the gala. You can also choose to look slightly more presentable at the grocery store, if you're less ambitious.
The Headgehog is designed for EDC (everyday carry). Wallet, keys, phone. The three things that go with you everywhere. We designed the Headgehog to incorporate into your wallet, so you'll never have to remember to bring it with you. We've utilized all available space on the comb to pack in every feature we could think of. Wrenches, a bottle opener, a phone kickstand, and even a chip clip, all in glorious 2D. Tools for everyday life that leave you simply prepared.
The Headgehog is the actual size of a credit card, measuring 3.370 x 2.125 inches in size, and about .040” thin (1mm).
It weighs less than one ounce, about .6 ounces to be exact.
The Headgehog is made from heat-treated stainless steel, and won't bend, break or rust. It's available both in natural steel finished with a high gloss overcoat or in several bright colors.
Colored Headgehogs are powder coated for maximum durability.
Zootility Tools is committed to producing Headgehog in the USA. It was designed in the USA, all of our manufacturing vendors are in the USA, and all of the materials we source will be made in the USA.
The Headgehog design is a challenge to manufacture. It has small details that can not be produced through traditional metalworking techniques. After months of experimenting, we decided the best production process is laser cutting. Each product is individually cut on a high-powered laser. We have developed our own process for removing and rounding the sharp edges left by the laser cutter. The final step is to use another laser to engrave the product text onto the face of the tool. The final product is a true testament to modern American manufacturing technology.
Risks and challenges
We've done the legwork on this project, we have vendors lined up and prices quoted. We have gone through many, many prototypes and have decided on a design and process that will produce the best tool. We are confident to be able to start shipping HeadgeHogs within a few months of becoming funded. Does anything ever ship on time? We have found it does not, and any production delays could trickle down to shipping Headgehogs slightly late to backers. If that does happen, we are talking about weeks and not months.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
