The award-winning Chicago Comb Company has been granted one of the most distinguished awards for their products. They have been issued two design patents for their unique combs by the United States Patent Office one for each of their two flagship products, the design of their Number 1 and Number 2 combs.
"We couldn't be happier," says co-founder John Litwinski. "We've spent many hours in crafting not only our unique designs, but we put a lot of attention on creating a high-quality product. We live in a time when it is very easy to copy products. Now that we have these patents, the worry of competitors copying us with inferior products has been taken out of the equation."
The Chicago Comb Company was founded by two childhood friends, John and Tedd, in 2010. Since starting their business, they have seen a steady growth in sales year after year, and the combs are now featured in retailers in 23 countries across the world. Their passion for quality and their keen sense of detail has brought to life a unique everyday item that will stand the test of time.
The patented No. 1 and No. 2 combs were the first combs ever to be laser cut out of steel in the US. The combs are then hand finished in their workshop in Chicago. All the steel that makes up the combs is sourced in the US as well as their packaging.
"One of our core values is local production. From the laser cutting of the combs to the machine and hand finishing, all are done right here in Chicago. Not a lot of companies can say that it's something we are very proud of," says co-founder Tedd Strom.
The Chicago Comb Company has expanded over the years, and now offers five different design models of combs, each with a matte, mirror or black finish. In addition, they offer their patented designs in pure American Titanium - the only comb in the world to do so. Each of their designs is accompanied by a leather sheath using top-quality leather from Chicago's world-famous Horween tannery.
They offer custom engraving on their website (www.chicagocomb.com), perfect for any special occasion or event, as well as limited supply of combs featuring the designs of acclaimed artists engraved on the combs.
