Enjoy cool and room temperature liquids in your drinking horn while remaining in character, hiding away the unsightly plastic bottles. Our drinking horns are a great addition to markets and camps. With the proper care, you can expect your Aegishjalmur Horn to last many long years. Remember not to use it for hot drinks, as the heat will cause the horn to change form. Since this product is made of a natural material, every horn product is unique, and the colour may vary from the shown picture.

To clean, place in warm soapy water, and brush gently with a bottle brush. With use, the wax may begin to peel back from the wall naturally. It can easily be re-adhered by adding more wax. Purchase a block of pure bees wax and gently melt it onto the affected area, thumbing the area closed and sealed again.
Cracks in horn may be fixed with the application of dish-washer safe "ModPodge", available on request at your local Spotlight or craft store.
