Raven drinking horn

This horn has the been hand carved with a Norse raven design.

Raven (Old Norse: hrafn- The Raven was a very symbolic animal across the Viking age and within Norse mythology. Raven's were seen as predatory powerful animals and were admired by the Vikings, so much so that it was popular to name your children after the bird. Raven's would circle battle fields, waiting for fighting to cease so that they could feed on the dead, who would now be on their way to Valhalla. Ragnar Lothbrok and King Harald Hardrada both sailed beneath a Raven banner. Odin himself had two ravens, Hugin and Munin, as pets that he would use to scour Midgard each day.

All our horn products are completely handmade in our Yorkshire based workshop so please be aware there is a production time of around 2-3 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.
