This 2 prong hairclaw was carved from a resin infused hardwood. It is about 5.5" long and works great for most hair types. You can also use this as a shawl closure! All of my hairforks have slight curves to ensure that it will not slide out at those inopportune moments. ........ like when your cleaning your toilet! This is a "made to order" claw and will look slightly different. If you have any special requests (square/rounded/diamond top, lengths ect), please put them in the notes at purchase. I treat all of my wooden hair forks with mineral oil..... i recommend rubbing mineral oil (or an oil of your choice) on this claw once every 3 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 Idaho Panhandle sun that powers all of my tools at my off-grid solar powered home.
