The Samson Comb is a feared artifact. Made from bone it is beautiful and inlaid with silver and jasper. Any one who uses the comb will for each stroke lose some hair and worse a part of their life. If they comb someone else's hair that life force goes that person and their hair grows longer and longer ever more luxuriant. Of course, the trick is to get someone to comb your hair as they slowly die.
