Jonathan Leitzel had little interest in barbering as a child. The fact that he operates a business in downtown Lancaster, PA; oversees a talented, growing team of barbers; and welcomes a myriad of clients from the tri-state area comes as a surprise to him. Today the Black Comb has quickly grown from a team of two to currently six barbers. The shop has moved from its original Duke Street location to a building five times larger on Orange Street to suit its ever-expanding client base. Known for its precise cuts, straight razor shaves, beard butter, and a quip or two, in just two years, The Black Comb has emerged as a Lancaster City staple.

Today we are extremely honored to feature Jonathan Leitzel, the man behind the Black Comb. What an incredible example of a top notch brand living out their story so so well.

KAREN is the vision, hands, and writer behind Masters of Their Craft features and will take it from here….

Our MASTERS OF THEIR CRAFT series is monthly features where we give a glimpse into the life, vision, and work of artists, entrepreneurs, craftsmen, musicians, business owners, innovators, and fellow dreamers who excel in their area of expertise. They use their gifting with passion and excellence. Their work is tried and true. By sharing these innovators with others who we know will value the labor of their hands as much as we do, we aim to make a humble attempt at giving them honor by telling their stories.
