The narrow teeth will remove tangles from fine coats, while the wide teeth will remove tangles for coarse (or curly) coats. This is extremely beneficial for me asI own a Husky with two layers of fur, and a Jack Russell with extremely curly fur. The comb really gets underneath, catching all of the loose hairs in the undercoat.
When I've used other combs I've found the teeth to have harsh spikes that cause pain and discomfort if used incorrectly. The Wahl Metal Pet Comb doesn't have this problem as all of the teeth are rounded at the points. At 21cm it's quite long, making it perfect for my Husky and the other larger dogs I often groom.
I haven't had any problems with this comb; however, some of the negative reviews on Amazon report that the teeth are too sharp (this hasn't been a problem with mine). Others report that the packaging doesn't make the grade and that the comb itself is too heavy for grooming smaller dogs.
If you have more than one dog or are constantly vacuuming due to malting undercoat, this dog grooming comb is definitely worth buying – at only £2.92 it will hardly break the bank. I've had mine now for well over a year and use it on a near-daily basis. None of the teeth have bent, broke or damaged, even with the constant pulling and tugging that it has been subjected to. If you only have a small dog, something a bit lighter may be more beneficial, but only if weight bothers you. See reviews of other dog grooming combs here
