General Information

A craft that died out.

The horn-comb maker. Until the 1950s horn-comb making was an independent craft, when it was declared an unregulated trade and the number of horn-comb makers began a steady decline. Petz Hornmanufaktur in Austria is one of the few that still makes combs, brushes and hair clasps by hand from natural horn. Since 1862 the knowledge and experience of manual processing of horn has been passed down from generation to generation. Today Thomas Petz, the grandson of the last Austrian horn-comb maker master, runs the family business, using the machinery of his grandfather. All steps in the processing of horn, around thirty for the production of a comb, are followed to a tee in the factory in Vienna, from the removal of the tip of the horns to the final polishing with pumice powder. That’s not the usual method. The horn is more often pressed in its country of origin. In Vienna the horn is slit and carefully heated in an oil bath. Then it’s pressed into sheets on special machines which the grandfather built according to plans he drew up in part himself.
