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

The Valknut is a mysterious symbol consisting of three interlocked triangles, and is thought to be strongly tied to Odin. The name comes from Old Norse for "Knot" and "Slain Warrior", loosely meaning the "knot of those fallen in battle". It is thought that the Valknut was displayed at the burial sights of those who dies in battle as a sign that they were to be taken to Valhalla.

The Valknut is hand carved into the horn. The Valknut may or may not be blackened with ink depending on the lower layer of the horn. If you have a preference for a horn with or without a painted inside of the carving, just let me know. If you do not specify, it will remain at the artistic discretion of our horn carving shieldmaiden.

This is a natural hand crafted product and there will be variation in size, shape and colour. The images show just a small selection of the variation in horns.

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
