The Hineri Kamisuki Wooden Twist Hair Comb for Life is so special and rare, you may well want to hold onto it until the day you die! Crafted from centuries-old wood (yes, 500 years old or more!), this hair accessory is almost too precious to use. But the Japanese find beauty in utility, and vice versa. If the age and pedigree of the wood is not enough to persuade you, take a look at the shape of the comb: it twists and curves elegantly, which makes it easier to comb hair. Made from Japanese birch traditionally said to be strong enough to break an axe, each comb is made by hand and unique.
