Viking Tweezers - Recreated Historical Artifact - Yes, they work!


These tweezers are handmade in the style Viking age tweezers! They are pictured here with REAL Viking Age tweezers that are part of my artifact collection. The tweezers you receive will be similar, but since these are all handmade there will be some slight differences. These tweezers are made from brass flat stock and hand hammered to work harden them so they actually work!

The Vikings took hygiene very seriously, in fact most people would have carried a kit with them that included a set of tweezers, an ear spoon, and a nail pick. There are Anglo-Saxon sources that complain about the Saxon women preferring the Danes because they smelled better and were better groomed than the Saxon men. In fact, the Norse bathed at least once a week (which was very often for that time), naming their day for Saturday "LØRDAG" meaning washing day, which was the day they took baths!
