Ebonised Walnut Hair Fork

A Pretty little round top hair fork hand carved from Walnut and Ebonised to give it the dark color. The Ebonising process I use is not a Dye or Stain but rather a completely natural chemical reaction that occurs when the Tannin in the wood is exposed to Moisture and Iron. The wood literally changes color and the whole process is completely safe, permanent and NON TOXIC not to mention Fun to do :) The Hair Fork is 5" long and has a slight curve. I have finished it with Certified Organic Flax Seed Oil and Orange Wax.
