Metal curry combs are likely no worse than rubber or others. They can be gentle or harsh according to how they are used. I use them year 'round for things like mud, snow, etc. to help remove things quickly. Of course, using them lightly takes off the upper layer. When I use them too hard, sometimes the horse flinches.

I only use a metal curry comb for cleaning my brushes. I use a shredder or rubber for hard mud but mainly use a dandy and work hard! I would never use a metal curry or shredder on the head??

I use metal curries when I have dried mud, espeically when I haven't groomed for awhile in the winter, like when I groomed all 3 last weekend. It's a good start on a muddy mane and tail, then you finish with another brush and a mane and tail comb.
IF the mud is mixed with manure you'll fight your horse using a metal curry. Metal curries used to be used all over the place. My Arab, "Corporal" hated them, so I only used rubber curries on him. NONE of my horses ever liked the big, massaging curries. I discovered early on that all of my horses prefered to have the faces groomed with pebble gloves, so I used that all of the time.
