The 6 Inch Striped Ebony Four Prong Hair Fork is straight and can be used from several angles. . This Straight Striped Ebony Four Prong Hair 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; 6" long and 1/4" thick. The pictures do not do justice to this Hair Fork.
The Functional Prong Length (FPL) is 4.5" for these Hair forks and varies within 1/4" from piece to piece.
This Hair Fork is not for those with Light, thin hair as the Prongs are wider apart then my regular Ebony Hair Fork...See link below:
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 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.

I use this as a pick for my natural curly kinky hair. It’s really well made with no seams that would damage my hair. Shipping was super fast.

This was a gift for my mother and she absolutely loves it. This is by far my favorite shop to buy hair sticks from. Every single one is perfect and a work of art.

Very beautiful! My hair is very long but baby fine, so this beautiful hair stick is a bit heavy for it. Thank you, Jim for the beautiful gift🎁.
