The 4 7/8 Inch Striped Ebony Hair Fork is curved to fit the contour of your head and can be used from several angles. This Curved Striped Ebony Four Prong Fork is a "Rustic Heavy Duty " hair fork I have added to my line for the customer with Thick Hair that needs a super strong Hair Fork with great holding power. . It is 2 5/8" wide; 4 7/8" long and 1/4" thick. The pictures do not do justice to this Hair Fork.
The Functional Prong Length (FPL) is 3 5/8" for this 4-Prong Hair Fork and varies within 1/4" from piece to piece.
This Southeast Asian Ebony (Diospyros Sp) is very heavy and is thought to be a sub-species of Macassar Ebony as the wood is found from Indonesia to India and known by different names throughout the area. There are something like 450 Ebony species know in the world but only a few grow to any size to make commercial lumber out of. For more info see macassarebony.com .
This "Rustic Heavy Duty" line I continue to add to now includes six different styles of Hair Forks as follows:
1) 4 7/8" Curved Three Prong Hair Fork 2" wide and 1 /4" thick
2) 4 3/4" Curved Two Prong Hair Fork 1 1/4" wide and 1/4" thick
3) 5 7/8" Straight Three Prong Hair Fork 2" wide and 1/4" thick
4) 5 3/4" Straight Two Prong hair Fork 1 1/4" wide and 1/4" thick
5) 6 1/8" Straight Four Prong Hair Fork 2 5/8" wide and 1/4" thick
6) 4 7/8" Curved Four Prong Hair Fork 2 5/8" wide and 1/4" thick
These Hair forks are being made out of Ebony and also Laos Rosewood so there are twelve different listings here on Etsy for these.
All of these forks are made of these heavy duty wood species and are very strong and hard. These "Rustic" hair forks all have their prongs spaced about 1/2" apart where my regular two and three prong forks are not spaced any greater than 3/8" apart. This is a negative for customers with very light, thin hair and I do not recommend these forks for them.
These are intended for the customer that has thick hair, and plenty of it !! If this is you try one of these and if it doesn't work for you return it for a full refund.
The last picture shows several different colors and grain patterns and is just to show the variety that this Hair Fork may come in. The listing is for only one Hair Fork.
The Hair Forks are finished with a lacquer coating and rubbed out to a semi-gloss finish and waxed with Johnson Paste wax.

As a matter of caution some of the Forks will be sharper then some people like and I therefore recommend that you blunt the tip with an emery board to the degree of sharpness you want.
If you find any of my Hair Forks not to your liking I will take them back.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Shipping from United States
At the present time I only ship to the USA due to negative Customs experiences I have had in the past.
I ship either US Priority Mail or US First Class mail depending upon the items weight. I try to ship the same day but because of my location in Hawaii your package will usually ship the following day as long as it is not a Sunday or Holiday.
I have a very liberal Return Policy in that you can return anything you want for any reason by notifying me within five days that you want to make a return.
I will refund your money for the product upon receipt of the product back. Shipping fees to return product will be at customers expense. Items may be returned up to 30 days after receipt by customer and notification to me of intent to return product.
A 10% Restocking Fee may apply for certain items.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why don't you ship outside of the USA ?
I will consider and have shipped to other Countries but only after we agree on prices and shipping. This must be done through the Convo system here on Etsy and is not available for all items due to the weight and shipping restrictions on some of my items.
I will however ship to friends or relatives of customers who are located in the USA and then they can make shipping arrangements to the customers location overseas.

Item is very beautiful and holds like a rock for regular hair as well. However if you ever have a black and white ebony fork as pictured please let me know :) also would love to see a tulipwood or even purple heart wood fork for sale and if you ever make some of them please let me know. thanks for the free gifts. I especially love the aluminum hair stick and see an aluminium fork purchase soon in my future!!!

As always, a gorgeous and extremely practical product. I love your work, and thank you again for the free gift! Every hair fork I have purchased here (I have 3 now!) have held my long hair in place through hard work outs, and always look elegant and I think they do less damage than hair elastics. Thank you for a useful and beautiful piece of my favorite place on earth!
