These combs are the mini size (4″ comb head, 3″ tine area), but with three rows of tines, making them well-suited to combing very short and very fine fibers.
The 74 polished, hardened steel tines are 1/16″ diameter, 3″ long, and set 1/8″ on center. The tines are set in poly-resin, which is then bolted to the maple wood frame. This is done so fluctuations due to the wood breathing will not affect the bond between the poly-resin and the wood – with the bolt system, the tine head will always be securely attached, with no wobbling or slipping.
The tines have a very slight curve near the tip, which helps them pass by each other without interference.
Handle is a comfortable one inch diameter.
Total weight for the pair is a little under 17 ounces.
Made of silky-smooth unfinished hardwood.
