A rough finish drinking horn made in Cumbria by Abbeyhorn. Approx 38cm.
Leather holster included.
Cow horn is exceedingly strong and durable, it responds easily to heat and can be bent and shaped with ease and it doesn’t carry flavour, and this is why it is great for use as a drinking vessel.
Made in Britain by Abbeyhorn, established in 1749. Traditional methods and machinery are still used to cut, saw, mould and polish the horns into unique products. Horn is a by-product of the meat industry and with it being a natural, biodegradable material it has been ground up and used as fertiliser for hundreds of years as it is so rich in calcium it is great for use in the garden and for growing crops. Once discarded, it will leave no footprint for future generations to worry about unlike plastic.
