Horn Purse Comb

There are no gentler nor more luxurious combs for your hair than those in our collection. Rich in keratin, the same material as your hair and fingernails, this french horn purse comb produce no static electricity. Satiny smooth and sensual to the touch, they glide effortlessly through the hair.

Nearly a lost art in this plastic age of ours, the working of horn is a kept alive by a handful of European artisans. Since the earliest times, man has made combs and utensils from horn - malleable when heated, hard enough to create durable, long lasting tools.

Our horn combs are crafted by artisans in the French town of Campredon - perhaps the last such masters in what was once the European capital of horn working. The artisans heat raw horn over open flame to a plastic consistency. Flattened and smoothed, the horn is then shaped. Cutting the teeth is especially intricate - great care is taken to ensure strength, consistency and comfort. Finally, each comb is sanded, polished and buffed, no two exactly alike in color or pattern. Each delivered to you in a hand-sewn, red calfskin case. Purse comb measures 1.25" x 6.25".

    Purchased the purse comb for my wife as a stocking stuffer this past December. We live in a humid climate and my wife has long, thick hair that gets frizzy easily. She feels this ccomb has done an amazing job in controlling her problem. So much that her friends have asked where they can get this comb. Now if more of her problems could be solver so easily........

    Still works after 10 years
    I bought one of these 10 years ago. It works so well I forget normal combs have that pesky static problem until I have to use one. I've broken only 3 of the fine teeth in all that time and I have very long hair. I love this comb. It is worth every penny.
