People have been combing wool for a very very long time. And there are as many kinds of combs as there are people that make them. Combs range from teak wood combs with 152, finely sharpened, 12 inch tines, to bits of wood with nails jammed through them with a dowel rod for a handle. In the Benjamin Green Studio, I wanted to take the best features of all combs researched, and combine them into something that would work well, look beautiful, and last a very long time.
When we comb wool, the idea is to align the fibers parallel to each other as they move from one comb to the other. This will never happen if the tines are covered in burrs, notches, or left over design features meant to cut through wood (like a nail), rather than pass smoothly through the fiber. However, even the smoothest of tines are useless if they wobble in the comb bed, or if the bed itself splits the first time that they are dropped or used a little roughly.
These are my “Standard” combs, and are made to be strong, functional, and economical. The 2 1/2 inch tines are deep set into the comb bed for extra stability. The comb bed itself is a cross grain lamination of cherry and walnut that is designed to add strength, contrast , and prevent cracking. The 6” solid cherry handles are hand-turned for comfort and beauty, and pass entirely through the tine bed for maximum strength. Each comb weighs approximately 7.5 ounces (210 grams).
To many, having a combing pad is an indispensable tool to accompany a set of wool combs. Drawing sliver is MUCH easier when the comb in use is secured to a table. With my unique pad design, you have a combination comb holder/clampable combing pad.
The holder/combing pad will securely hold the combs in place with the tines safely tucked inside and still look great sitting on a shelf. In addition, it can be firmly clamped to the corner or edge of a table and used to hold one comb stationary when combing and drawing off sliver. Clamps can be used on most any table, from 1/2 inch. to 1-3/4 thick. (Please contact me if you require clamps for tables thicker than 1-1/2").When the combs are not in use, simply secure them to the holder with the lock pins, and store them in an are that is out of reach of any passing children.
