I have a good friend, Jane Cunningham, who writes one of the finest beauty blogs on the planet and she sometimes sends outstanding talent my way. This week it was a delightful gentleman called Joshua, a passionate young Scott who has had the clever idea of creating hand-crafted beard combs for gentlemen from Scottish oak! They are exquisite - large and curved so they fit into the palm like an extension of one's arm and, of course, are wooden so do not cause static like plastic brushes and combs. They are finished in the traditional manner by boiling them in linseed oil and the detailing is just superb - the rear of each comb carries a pattern that was created from combining a bird’s eye view of Edinburgh's New Town street layout and the iconic architecture of the Forth Rail Bridge! This is a wonderful gift if you, your friends or loved ones have Scottish ancestry and, quite honestly, even if you don't! Obviously they also have irrefutable ecological credentials and, if treated with care, will last a lifetime. My congratulation to Joshua and his team of artisans, these are beautiful things to be used and enjoyed daily by hirsute gentlemen like myself!
Handcrafted from Oak.
Dimensions: L 15cm x H 6cm x D 2.5cm Please note these are rough estimates as each comb will differ slightly because of their handmade nature.
Being a natural item variations in colour and grain mean each piece is unique so may vary from the one pictured.
