The Escapists Wiki


The Comb Blade has only one use; beating up other inmates or guards. It is a 2/5 weapon, making it as strong as the Comb Shiv.png Comb Shiv, Toothbrush Shiv.png Toothbrush Shiv, and the Broom.png Broom. In The Escapists 2, it is also required in Favours.

Because the Comb Blade is a relatively weak weapon, it's recommended to use a Comb Shiv.png Comb Shiv instead (or considerably better, a non-contraband weapon such as a Broom), and to save the Razor Blade.png Razor Blade for making a stronger weapon, such as a Whip.png Whip or a Knuckle Duster.png Knuckle Duster.

In The Escapists 2, the Comb Blade is virtually useless, as its stats are identical to those of the Razorblade used to craft it, while the Razor is also non-contraband. As such, it is recommended that you never craft the Comb Blade (unless you're doing it for a favour).


It can be found on inmates, rarely in their desks or crafted.
