Here at Custom Drinking Horns we specialize in custom hand carved horns with quality and style you won’t find elsewhere.  Each horn is carved and finished by hand with skill that’s taken over six years to master.

 

Our passion for horn carving first started while reading a translation of Beowulf alongside the original text and we fell in love with the cadence and grandeur of the language.  We came across the mention of drinking horns again while reading the Poetic Edda and several secondary sources about Scandinavian religious beliefs.  At this point we had to have our own drinking horns, and unable to find any online that lived up to our standards, we crafted our own.

Want to give a friend or loved one the gift of a custom drinking horn, but you’re not sure which design they would choose? No fear, gift certificates are here! Details and more information can be found here.

 

“It seems that to be offered alcohol in a horn was a mark of status…. Horns were the ceremonial drinking vessel for those of high status all through the period.”

-Anne Hagen, A Second Handbook of Anglo-Saxon Food and Drink: Production and Distribution.
