Default What kind of COMB do you use for tying

Which do you use for "combing" out the hair, etc. ?

Moustache comb ? Regular mens comb, fine end section ? Women's Eye Lash comb .. seems to be very FINE teeth and spacing ...

What say thee ?

I took an old toothbrush, ground down the head (on my benc h grinder) to one row of bristles, tapered the neck and shortened the handle. I also cut the bristles down to 1/4". Seems to work OK. It does trap a few larger hairs, but it does pull out the under fur in the (mule) deer hair that I usually use it on.
