Horn & Bone

This month we're adding several accessories to our shop.  We've sourced combs, collar stays and shoe horns from the storied Abbeyhorn located 5 hours north of London.  Abbeyhorn has a long and rich history in the trade, having been in business since 1749 and being owned by multiple generations of multiple families.

We opted to start with three core accessories for our clients.  The materials are unparalleled in quality, being made from cow bone and buffalo horn.  You can read about how Abbeyhorn sources their materials here.  The 5 inch comb is compact enough to fit in any dopp kit, being much stronger than a resin comb where teeth can regularly break.  We chose a comb that is dual sided for versatility and appropriately sized for a pocket or briefcase.  Similarly, the shoe horn is 4 inches in length and comes with a strap to be perfect for travel.  Lastly, the collar stays are made of bone and will not warp over time.

All of these accessories are engraved in England and come in our reusable canvas bags.  Each piece is unique, and due to variations in the horn, look different than the next.  Any, or all, of them are great for groomsmen gifts, father's day gifts or as a treat to oneself.
