Handle Comb Made of Horn
Viennese Horn Combs Since 1862.
Since 1862, the knowledge and experience of the manual processing of horn has been passed from generation to generation, today Thomas Petz, grandson of the last Austrian horn comb guild’s master, leads the family business and manufactures on the machines of the grandfather. All the work processes in the treatment of the horn - about 30 different steps - are performed in full in the Viennese operations of the Petz family, from the separation of the horn tip of the basic material through to the final fine polishing of the tips of the comb teeth and spaces between them with powdered pumice stone.
Ideal Hair Care. With Both: Wood and Horn.
A whole chemical industry makes attempts to combat it but it can often be remedied with simple and natural means, namely the excess grease in hair, its brittleness and roughness. Combs made of wood and horn are still the best helpers in the care of greasy hair, since they are affiliated to it. They absorb excess skin grease and take it where it is most needed, namely to the tips of your hair. Since these materials barely charge hair electrically, irritation of the pilomotor muscle which controls the grease supply by the sebaceous glands is avoided. At the same time, hair is gently untangled and smoothed. Our selection of combs also features the highest possible processing quality – only in this way can hair be combed gently. The comb teeth and spaces between the teeth are carefully sawed, rounded and polished in processes appropriate to the relevant material – for horn and wood, ebonite and cellulose acetate.
Horn is a natural product which always differs in colouring and graining. So products made of this material are never identical and thus unique in colour and marking. The comb should be treated regularly, with our horn balm for example.
