Do you need any other things besides the print?

You will need to use 2x M3 bolts, nuts, and washers to hold the bits together. Alternatively, you can substitute it with a bamboo/wooden and press fit it.

Hey guys if your like me and the pin doesn't ever wanna stay in I just use zip ties

Hey, I love this model. Would it be okay if I sold some at my school. People seem to really enjoy it!

Selling something that even vaguely resembles a weapon (especially illegal) at a school seems like an extremely bad idea...

Its not a weapon its a comb and a butterfly knife mixed together :)

Thanks captain obvious... That was never in doubt. Now read what I said again. "Selling something that even vaguely resembles a weapon (especially illegal) at a school seems like an extremely bad idea..."

Great model! all of my friends love it !

this is cool! just DONT print this with brim, because its really hard to remove the plastic between the teeth!


Can we have a version with wider teeth as well as the current version?

I am finding the small teeth more difficult to print

I remember having one of these from the local show. The handle link does not work but I see 245 downloads, maybe the link is broken.  I would like to make a few if you could fix the link please would be cool, cheers

I just tried, and it does let me download. Maybe it was just a problem with Thingiverse during the time you tried to download it?

Hi , I cannot download the handle file, it comes up with a page of code like ... Is the link broken ? :'(

Cool design. It works fine on my short hair, though my wife says it doesn't reach her scalp through her thicker hair. Still, she wouldn't want to carry such a mechanical-looking weapon-inspired comb around anyway :) It reminds me of my titanium-handled Leatherman multitool.

I'd like to suggest trying a modification of the decorative holes in the handgrips. Circular holes make perfect sense when you are machining metal, because you can just drill them out, but on a Reprap style printer (like my Prusa), it might work better to have diamond-shaped cutouts - that is, squ
ares resting on their points. It'd look even more mechanical, and avoid the drooping that sometimes happens when attempting to bridge vertical circles.

I filed out the decorative circle cut-outs on my handles with a round file, because my printer left them looking a bit wobbly due to the angle of o
verhang. Good fun, though, as I love testing out what my printer can do. And now I have a cool butterfly comb to carry in my pocket and play with when I'm bored.

Thanks for the design. It's always good to have more stuff to show off to those who don't yet get the point of desktop 3D printers.

I had this idea just the other day spooky. Great job.

I couldn't find one myself on thingiverse so I just thought I had to make one :-D

loving this, just like the real ting init :-)
