Today I went with two of my classmates to this store in Nagoya where they make traditional Japanese combs. Apparently it's the only store in Aichi-ken and it also where all the sumo wrestles buy their combs from. Before today, I had never realized how many kinds of combs there are and they all have different functions. In the end we carve our own little combs and sew their cases.. While hand sewing mine, I accidentally poke my finger with the needle and spilled some blood on the lining of the case.. I signed it with blood so that it will always be mine.
