Viking Bone Comb
5 in stock
Description of the Product
Combs are one of the oldest tools mankind knows, as personal grooming and looking after your own looks is just as old as behavior as humans are as a species. In Viking and medieval times combs were not only used to care after human hair but also to prepare wool and other natural fibers for spinning and felting. Our reconstruction of an early medieval Viking comb is handmade from genuine bone.
The comb has a loop at its center, where you can attach a leather strap or a cord to keep your valued comb safe. The comb is strengthened at the back by strips of bone that are riveted in to make the comb more rigid and durable. Nevertheless it’s necessary to handle this fragile natural material with care.
Length 15 cm, height 3,5 cm, thickness of the back 1 cm.
