This is our plain war horn, that has been polished to a high gloss finish. We don't use trumpet reeds in our war horns, each and every mouth piece has been hand carved to match the traditional Viking method.
War Horns are sounding devices that were typically made from animal horn, a mouth piece is carved into the "tip" of the horn allowing the user to blow the horn creating an extremely loud distinctive noise. The most famous Viking war horn was Gjallerhorn which belonged to the God Heimdall, who would sound the horn to signal the beginning or Ragnarok (The end of the world).
