The Kent Company was founded in England in 1777 and has now supplied the combs for nine consecutive sovereign reigns. The Queen of England uses a Kent comb. In spite of this impressive pedigree, the Kent Combs are equally reputed for their quality. "Each are hand-sawn from large sheets of cellulose acetate rather than moulded and have rounded teeth, ensuring a smooth and comfortable action. The result is a comb that glides effortlessly through the hair without scratching or damaging the hair or scalp."
