Viking Age Scandinavians were known for their "bearded" axes, which had a hook or "beard" that extended the cutting edge and provided a wide cutting surface. The design was a great multi-purpose axe that enabled more detailed woodworking and served as a formidable weapon capable of pulling a sword or shield from a defender's grasp. Thanks to Beard & Bates, the "Bearded Axe" has another, and perhaps it's greatest accolade: it makes for the World's Baddest Beard Comb! An original and Patented Beard & Bates design, "The Bearded Axe Beard Comb" Woodsman is unlike anything else. It's partly ridiculous, partly over-the-top, but it's 100% a functional statement and each comb is a beautiful work of art. Expertly cut and assembled seamlessly from fragrant Green Sandalwood and Golden Sandalwood, the Original comb is refined and polished to perfection. An interesting and fun feature of Green Sandalwood: it becomes more green in color over time and once exposed to sunlight.
