Old Norse texts portray Odin as one-eyed and long-bearded, frequently wielding a spear named Gungnir and wearing a cloak and a broad hat. He is often accompanied by his animal companions and familiars—the wolves Geri and Freki and the ravens Hugin and Munin, who bring him information from all over Midgard—and rides the flying, eight-legged steed Slepnir across the sky and into the underworld. Odin is the son of Bestla and Borr and has two brothers, Vili and Ve. Odin is attested as having many names, most famously the gods Thor and Baldr, and is known by hundreds of names.
All our horn products are completely handmade in our Yorkshire based workshop so please be aware there is a production time of around 4 weeks once the order has been placed .
All our horn products are handmade in our Yorkshire based workshop. All horns arrive in their completely natural state, we then sand, polish and line the inside of each individual piece. All designs are drawn on and carved entirely by hand.
The inside of the horn has been extensively cleaned and then lined using a food grade beeswax. We try to keep everything as authentic and organic as possible, which is why we opt for a deodorized beeswax lining rather than a polyurethane one. Because we use a natural wax, the horn isn't suitable for hot drinks. All drinking horns and mugs come with a set of care instructions.
Our horns come without a stand, unless specified otherwise. All our stands are made exclusively for Horns of Odin by our U.K based blacksmith and can be found in the "horn accessories" section.
These horns are made to order, so may differ from the product pictures. If you have a preferred colour horn, please leave a message with your order and we will do everything we can to accommodate.
