Description

What brings to mind a bygone era like the ceremonial drinking Horn? Although used throughout antiquity by many cultures including the ancient Greeks, Babylonians, and Europeans, the drinking Horn has become the iconic symbol of the Viking culture. Even today it is still  regularly used by Asatru, Germans, Austrians, and Georgians. Popular cult shows such as “Game of Thrones” and “Vikings” have brought the drinking Horn back from dusty atonomy and the occasional Ren faire to a glowingly popular item.

These horns come either lined or unlined.  Lining is not a necessity. None of the cultures listed above ever lined their horns aside from plugging up leaks. However unlined horns have a “horny” or “wet dog” taste and will need to go through the process called seasoning in order to get rid of it. It is quite simple and each horn comes with instructions on how to season your new horn as well as how to care for it for years to come.

However, lining a horn has some advantages.  A lining protects the horn from acidic beverages, temperature fluctuations, and additional wear and tear. As I ship year round, I opt not to use the temperature sensitive beeswax method.  Instead I use a proprietary blend of resins.  My linings can withstand extreme temperatures, high alcohol content, and are completely food safe.  There is not right or wrong choice for wither to go with a lined or unlined horn.

Either way,  I put my drinking horns through a rigorous sanitation process after they are cut, sanded, and polished. I use the same type of process used by beverage plants on reusable bottles in bottling plants. Except my horns spend a minimum of 4 full hours in a sanitation vat. They are completely clean and sanitized, totally safe for use.

My horns can be ordered with a belt holster. The loop of the holster is large enough to accommodate up to a 3.5 inch wide belt or strap. Each belt holster is handcrafted of durable leather and comes in black, brown, or red. As with all of my products, I would be happy to custom make one in any color you like.

These small drinking horns are long and narrow averaging around 15″ in length. They hold between 8 and 12 fluid oz. I sort my horns by the amount of liquid they hold, not their size, so please allow for some variation in length and width.
