Cool idea, but how comfortable is it to hold up?

Very easy!

The Thumbsaver is made out of solid aluminum to house the magnet, and has an incredibly light wieght so you can hold it up without sore arms. It also has a rubber comfort grip that makes it easy to hold and absorbs vibration when hammering. Great tool!

Cool Idea, but...

A cheap comb will have the same functionality, with no magnet...
