Places we will be selling Horns
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
