Every Viking needs their very own hand crafted drinking horn. Fill your horn, to the brim with ale or mead, and drink yourself into Valhalla! 

Thor's Hammer, the Mjolnir, has been hand carved into the horn and accentuated with black paint. The Mjolnir is based on the Skåne design.

One of the best known items from the Viking Age is the Thor's Hammer (Mjölnir in Old Norse). The Thor's Hammer was worn by pagans who followed the Norse Gods and in particular, Thor. The Thor's Hammer was a magical weapon carried by the God and made by dwarves. It had many powers and the image of the hammer was usually worn by Heathens, one of the most famous and instantly recognisable Hammers is the archaeological example from Skåne in Sweden. 

The original hammer was made of silver with filigree ornamentation and was found in an undocumented location in Skåne, Sweden. It belonged to a collection owned by the baron Claes Kurck, who donated it to the Historical Museum in Stockholm in 1895, where it is to this day. Although the location of the find is unknown, unreliable sources says that the hammer was found in Kabbarp near Staffanstorp in Skåne, Sweden.

Ethically sourced

Horns are by-products of the meat industry. Our horns are salvaged from this so instead of going to waste, they are cleaned, reconditioned and turned into a beautiful vessel to start a new life. They're hand crafted of natural materials (ox or cow horn) so are likely to present some marks from the previous life or crafting process. None have a perfectly smooth finish by the very nature of the items. Each is handmade, beautiful and unique. All our horns are cleaned, sculpted and polished by our craftsman to a beautiful finish and are safe to drink from.  

Sorry, dragon, iron or horn holder not included! Available to purchase separately
