THIS ITEM IS NOT A FULL SCALE TOY SWORD OR REPLICA!

Hand crafted with pride in the USA!

ATTENTION, please, all Middle-Earth Princesses and long-haired hobbit fans....
I based this hair sword on 'Sting', and if I haven't already lost you, then no further description is necessary. If you AREN'T a Middle-Earth Princess or long-haired hobbit fan (and yes, I am told that there ARE such people) you may still find this lovely hair sword to be a charming addition to your hair sword collection. You DO have a hair sword collection, don't you?

I cut this beautiful hair toy on my scroll saw from solid oak and hand sanded. Next I ebonized the hair stick. Ebonizing, for those unfamiliar, is a means of chemically darkening wood - a process not unlike staining, except that the chemical in this case is vinegar and iron oxide (rust) which darkens the wood through a natural, organic process. In case you were wondering. I finished it off with Danish oil and carnuba wax for a smooth, natural finish.

The total length of this hair stick is 7 3/4" , with the working portion being 6". It is 1 1/2" wide at the top and approx. 9mm thick.

If you are interested in this or any of my other hair sticks but might like a different wood or length than that shown, please let me know - I am happy to custom make any hair stick any way you'd like it. I try to keep my shop stocked with the following woods, and will not charge extra for their use: Oak, Maple, Cherry, Walnut and Mahogany. In addition, I have a limited supply of the following exotic hardwoods, or may be able to get them for an added fee: purpleheart, yellowheart, bloodwood, bocote, mora, padauk and leopardwood. Other woods may be available upon request. Please do not hesitate to ask! Feel free to share your thoughts or wishes with me; I'll work with you to make it happen.

Please be aware that the images shown are stock photos. As each hair stick is individually hand crafted there may be subtle differences between the one shown and the one you receive. Be assured that yours will be every bit as beautiful.

Also be aware that the effects of ebonizing can vary, with some pieces turning out darker than others. It has to do with wood grain, density and the amount of tannin in the wood - all of which can vary even within the same board. I have included pictures of more than one hair stick in an attempt to help illustrate this point. :)

I will ship this item USPS first class insured in a padded envelope that I will line with cardboard for added protection for $4.00 within the US; $11.00 to Canada and $15.00 to anywhere else in the world. I will combine shipping and ship this item for free with any other purchase within the US, or for an added $0.50 anywhere else. I also offer a priority shipping upgrade within the US.
