This article from "Medieval Archaeology vol. 53" looks at Viking bone and antler combs found in Scotland and gives a typology for the various forms:

I know of another article looking at English 11th-12th century comb forms if anyone is interested in that era.

It's by the same writer and was published by the Finds Research Group some time ago - it covers a much longer period than I remembered (but I have not looked at it for some time):
