Hand carved to showcase a Thor's Hammer, this black and white horn features a knotwork band at the top with a partial band of the same knotwork separating the end of the horn which has been carved to add detail from top to bottom making this a truly unique horn to behold. The carvings has been enhanced though the use of pyrography. The horn has been coloured using pyrography tools that give the horn that warm beautiful brown backgorund.
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.

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. Each is handmade and unique. All our horns are cleaned, sculpted and polished by our craftsman to a beautiful finish and are safe to drink from.
Please note, due to reflections, the horn appears to be lighter in the images than in real life.
