狐の髪切 kamikiri

狐の髪切(kamikiri,Hair Cutter)

Japanese Fox liked to eat the hair of man or woman in Yedo period.

One samurai's hair was cut out while sleeping. The hair under the pillow was not cut. The head was very stinky. Slaver had stickily adhered to the hair.

It was guessed that fox's purpose was pomade.
