This deluxe drinking horn is made from 100% pure cow horn and holds approximately 750ml of water, wine, ale, beer, or other drink. The exterior is polished to a shiny surface. And the inside is coated with a food safe lacquer. Horns from cows, buffalos or oxen have traditionally been used as drinking vessels by various people in many regions of the world, this fine specimen is a great example of the practice.
Drinking horns were traditionally used in many parts of the world. Sometimes ceremonial, and often as an everyday drinking horn. What is unique about the horn, it cannot be set down on a table until it is empty.

The Following 5 steps are being generally followed during the manufacturing process of drinking horns:
a) Selecting an appropriate horn.
b) Sanding the horn from the outside.
c) Washing with hot water.
All of our horns are polished to give a smooth finish. Wiping the horns with some vegetable oil occasionally will help increase the life of your possession. Since these are made from natural materials, the color shades and sizes made vary from piece to piece.
I am extremely happy with my large drinking horn! It's beautiful and very high quality! The packaging was very poorly done and I'm surprised my horn did not arrive damaged (box was coming apart and horn was "swimming" inside the large box without filling). I will certainly buy from Viking Merch again and I expect packaging to improve in the future.
It is gorgeous! The size, finish, general appearance is all better than expected. It was a gift and the recipient loves it!
Very Happy with my purchase and the entire transaction
Overall the drinking horn is great in terms of look, I imagine it will be just as good in use. Mine had a really thin spot that has resulted in an exchange. That process has been very smooth so far and I have no reason to believe that it won't end perfectly. I recommend this site and it's staff while heartedly.
Excellent and it's fun to have at parties and fun to use what I'm thinking LoL
