Amboyna Burl & Yew Hair Fork - 3 Prong

This is one of my special "burl" hair forks. Burl wood comes form a section of a tree that is injured either physically or by disease. It is sort of a cancerous knob that can grow quite large. Burls have a very irregular and beautiful grain pattern that is prized by woodworkers. However, burl wood is usually very brittle making it unsuitable for items like hair forks that will stress the wood. In order to be able to use this burl wood in my forks, I laminate the burl with another stronger wood. This not only produces a stronger fork but also gives the user two forks for the price of one!

I carved this hair fork from a piece of Amboyna Burl from Southeast Asia. The burl is laminated to a piece of Yew on the back. Hair fork is 5" long and 1 7/8" wide. Working length 3 3/4".

I make my hair forks in a tiny shop here in Montana. I make each piece one-at-a-time and no two are exactly alike. Each piece goes through a multiple step sanding process for a super-smooth finish. I then add several coats of a special handmade varnish that results in a very durable finish that should last a lifetime under normal use. These hair forks make a unique gift for yourself or for family, friends and business associates.

Visit my SHOP for more hair forks as well as pens, original photographs, musical instruments and children's picture books. (I do a lot of stuff.)

If there is a certain style or length of hair fork you are looking for convo me and we'll talk.

Thanks for looking.
