Description

The Norse peoples were notoriously well-groomed, which caused no small amount of envy.


Christian writings routinely demonize the Vikings but periodically let slip the Christian resentment for the better-groomed – and sweeter-smelling – Scandinavian invaders. Scholar Magnus Magnusson cites the 13th-century English chronicler John of Wallingford’s famous passage in which he justifies the massacre of the Danes in 1002:


The Danes made themselves too acceptable to English women by their elegant manners and their care of their person. They combed their hair every day, bathed every Saturday, and even changed their garments often. They set off their persons by many such frivolous devices. In this manner, they laid siege to the virtue of the married women and persuaded the daughters, even of the nobles, to be their concubines.” 

Because it is not enough to plunder riches: one has to look good while doing it!


This comb is entirely made of Stainless Steel and about 10cm long.
