Type 2 is made up of single-sided composite combs that have a high length:width ratio. The class seems to be related to Type 1a and 1b combs, and 'hybrid' examples provide circumstantial support for this development (e.g. Dickinson 1992; MacGregor 1992). The group is conventionally dated to between the 5th and 9th centuries, and across this timeframe three subtypes may be identified.
