Groetsch Beard or Pocket Comb, Hornbeam
A hand-made hardwood small comb from the Groetsch family of Enzendorf, Germany. Crafted from local hornbeam timber, a smooth grained, tight pored wood known for its hard and even texture, on the original 150 year old cutting machines, with teeth that are tapered, rounded at tip and base, polished on both interstitial and external faces, and fixed to a laterally-grained back for flexible strength and support. This fine-toothed comb is suitable for using as a pocket comb or for tidying beards and moustaches. Measures 12.5cm.
