This 3 prong hairclaw is carved from an Elk antler that was shed and found in the Idaho Panhandle. It is about 6.5" long (prong length about 5.5") and works great for most hair types. 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.
