Shoehorn horn with handle
Pleases hand and foot. A shoehorn made of horn
From haptic pleasantly warm horn and worked by hand is this long shoehorn, which already belongs to the rare specimens of its kind because of its length. Because horn is an increasingly rare material, especially if it is to be processed in such a Gardemaß. The horn used here comes from cattle from South and Central Africa, which are kept there by small farmers for meat production.
So that the foot can easily slide into the shoe, the horn surface is carefully polished in several steps. The handle is reinforced with plates of the same material, so it fits comfortably in the hand and makes the 40 cm long shoehorn even more user-friendly.
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.
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 product should be treated regularly, with our horn balm for example.
