Another super-quick photo post today.

A while back I made a few different Viking Age-inspired horse-head combs based off an extant example. I wasn’t sure how well the tiny teeth would work on the laser cutter, so I only cut a few, but they turned out really well!

This round of Viking - inspired combs are approximately 7.3cm wide and 9cm tall

I had a friend who wanted one for her own Viking reenactment kit, so when I was at the Maker Space cutting a few other things (see my laser cutter tag) I decided to cut out a few new combs as well. These are all stained with a mix of Tudor and Mahogany stains, and finished with a clear varnish. One is reserved for my friend… but the others are up for grabs if anyone would like to buy one for their own kit. Keep in mind, that these are decorative only – the teeth are very fragile and might not work for actual hairstyling.
