Everything Horn

Everything Horn

DID YOU KNOW THAT COW HORN WAS CONSIDERED THE PLASTIC OF THE 18TH CENTURY? FLATTENED SHEETS OF COW HORN WERE THEN CUT AND PRESSED INTO MANY SHAPES AND USES. EVERYTHING FROM FORKS, SPOONS, COMBS AND BUTTONS. ANTLER AND BONE WERE OFTEN USED FOR KNIFE AND OTHER TYPES OF HANDLES.

Horn makers who buy our horns and turn them into beautiful powder horns. You can find them at The Honourable Company of Horners (hornguild.org).

There are still unpolished horns (not raw) to choose from!

The x- large and large horns are exceptional material for making cups, flask, pressed horn, etc. The mediums are as nice but smaller and would be close to what our friends in the historical field would call a “French & Indian ” size horn. Smalls are appropriate for flasks and small southern horns.

The horn on the bottom/right picture is actually 30 inches long.

Sizes are: 32″-36″ | 24″-32 |10″-24″

*some premier horns may be more
