“If you look good, you feel good. If you feel good, you do good.”
They say you can learn much about a man according to the content of his pockets. As the times change, the men change with it, and so inevitably the content of their pockets change as well.

In a prior age, every self-respecting man carried in his pocket a zippo, a handkerchief and a comb. That was back when smoking was classy, germs were unknown, and maintaining hair after removing a hat was paramount.
Style has changed greatly, and although three piece suits and hats aren’t as standard as they once were, many of us still do the extra work to keep a sharp appearance. A pocket comb will always have a place in the Everyday Carry kit of many men.
Due to popular demand, we're making the leather sheath available alongside the popular brass comb in it's own reward option.
We’ve all either heard the term or said it ourselves, and it’s true that they “don’t make them like they used to”. Whether it’s those hefty old Pontiac’s or stout kitchen appliances, 60 years ago things were built from heavy gauge metal and made to last. Today’s game is about how lightweight can you make it, and if plastic will hold it together for at least a short while until they have to buy another one. Planned obsolescence is a great way to make money, but ultimately costs users more through repeat purchasing and the impact that plastic has had on this rock we call home. For us here at Folkland, we prefer the “buy it once, buy it right” mentality that Granddad had.
We’re certainly not aiming to change the comb game in any way with our Pocket Comb. Folks who carry a comb are very preferential in the aspects of the comb that’s right for them, which typically revolves around their tolerances for pocket content and their hair type. That being said;
This comb is specifically built for the people who want a durable comb, compact in size, appealing in design and enjoy the heft of something made to last.
Not to mention the people who enjoy drinking quality beer. Yes, the built-in bottle opener is a useful addition for those of us who prefer a craft beer that doesn’t have a twist top. We’ve also thrown in a tool bit wrench hole for those EDC die-hards who pack around that needed torque bit for whichever piece of their EDC kit needs one.
FOLKLAND is a startup lifestyle brand in the American Pacific Northwest, bringing to market quality made products built with durability and style. We’re looking forward to introducing new products to the market with crowd funding as our launch pad. Our background is in artisan leather goods manufacturing (Craft and Lore) using the highest grade materials for uncompromising quality.
THINGS TO COME

Risks and challenges
There's always risk involved in backing a Kickstarter project. While the Folkland brand is new, the creators behind the brand have their hand in multiple successful Kickstarter campaigns with proven on-time delivery results.
Our greatest risk will fall on our vendors being able to produce our products within timelines promised, as well as material delivery supply. We're confident that the risk of delay is very minimal, and our loyalty to customers is very high. We will see the campaign through, no matter how many setbacks could potentially occur.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
