SE Asian Ebony 5 Inch Three Prong Curved Hair Fork FPL 4 Inch Pick Pin Comb Stick Black Dark Brown Grain 1 7/8" wide 1/4" Thick Bun Holder
This particular Hair Fork was the request of several customers who had "Special" up-do's that needed a Five Inch Length with an FPL of Four Inches. So I made a bunch for them and extras for the rest of you..... I hope it fits the bill !! The last picture shows some of the color variations the wood comes in.
This 5 Inch Southeast Asian Striped Ebony 3-Prong Hair Fork is curved to fit the contour of your head and is a compliment to my other Striped Ebony "Rustic Heavy Duty Hair Fork" and differs in that although it is five Inches long and lighter it has a longer FPL of 4". This Curved Hair Fork is made for those who want a smaller hair fork that is strong yet holds well, is not heavy so it can be used with thinner hair. It is only 1 7/8 " wide; 5 " long and about 1/4" thick. The pictures do not do justice to this Hair Fork.
This Hair Fork is for those with Light, thin hair as the fork is light and strong and holds well.
The Functional Prong Length (FPL) is Four" for this 3-Prong Hair Fork and varies within 1/8" 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 smaller and lighter Ebony 3 prong Hair Fork should now be added to my "Rustic Heavy Duty" line I have introduced before and will continue to expand in the near future . The line now includes Seven Different SE Asian Ebony Hair Forks as follows :
1) 4 7/8" Curved Three Prong Hair Fork 2" wide and 1 /4" thick with FPL of 3 1/2"
2) 4 3/4" Curved Two Prong Hair Fork 1 1/4" wide and 1/4" thick with FPL of 3 1/2"
3) 5 7/8" Straight Three Prong Hair Fork 2" wide and 1/4" thick with FPL of 4 1/2"
4) 5 3/4" Straight Two Prong hair Fork 1 1/4" wide and 1/4" thick with FPL of 4 1/2"
5) 4 1/2" Curved Two Prong hair Fork 1" wide and 3/16" thick with FPL of 3 3/4"
6) 5 " Curved Two Prong hair Fork 1 1/8" wide and 3/16" thick with FPL of 4"
7) 5 " Curved Three prong Hair Fork 1 7/8" wide ND 1/4 " thick with FPL of 4"
These Hair forks are being made out of Laos Rosewood and/or SE Asian Striped Ebony so there are fourteen different listings here on Etsy .
The Hair Forks are finished with a lacquer coating and rubbed out to a semi-gloss finish and waxed with Johnson Paste wax.
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.

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.
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 have a lot of shoulder length super-fine hair, and it’s difficult to find hair combs that won’t slide out. I definitely hit the jackpot here. This comb is beautiful AND functional. It holds my hair securely in place without weighing it down.

Well made and beautiful hair fork. It is so comfortable to wear with that curve instead of a straight fork. Thank you for the extra "present". I was afraid it would just slip out of my hair but it actually holds it well and is comfortable too! Highly recommend this seller. Shipping was fast also. I'm very pleased with my curved forks!!!

My coarse hair is always catching and being pulled out whenever I remove hair ties and clips, so I’ve been looking for a way to put my hair up while minimizing damage to it and came across some videos about hair forks and thought they looked really cool. I wasn’t sure what size I’d need so I ended up buying 2, 3, and 4 prong forks (all about 5 in long). All 3 work in my hair and I am blown away by how lovely they are in person. They’re lightweight, hold my hair securely all day, and yet they slip out so smoothly when I remove them. The quality is just beautiful and I love that each one is a unique piece of nature. I will definitely be back for more of these for myself and for gifts in the future. I also appreciated the quick communication from the seller and the additional gifts, care instructions and super-fast shipping!
