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

The Vegvisir (Icelandic Vegvísir, “That Which Shows the Way;” pronounced “VEGG-vee-seer”) is a symbol found only in one modern Icelandic collection of spells, the so-called Huld manuscript. That book has nothing more than this one sentence to say about it: “If this sign is carried, one will never lose one’s way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known.”

The  Vegvisir is hand carved into the horn surrounded by knotwork and painted in white.

You will receive the horn in the image, the only one of its kind we've made so you'd have a unique creation.

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.
