This 3 prong hairclaw is carved from curly maple. It is about 6.5" long (prong length about 5"long) and works great for most hair types. Embellished with an antler slice/rosette that I inlayed a dog paw with raw hand crushed turquoise. You can also use this as a shawl closure! This is the exact claw you will receive. All of my hairclaws have slight curves to ensure that it will not slide out at those inopportune moments. I treat all of my wooden hair claws with mineral oil.....i recommend rubbing mineral oil (or an oil of your choice) on this claw once every 6 months or whenever it looks dry. I make all of my hair forks myself - no sweatshops, no manufacturing companies, no employees, no 3-d printers and absolutely no stress!!! Its the clean energy of the Sun that powers all of my tools at my off-grid solar home.
