All of the Northern European nations formerly drank out of horns, which were commonly those of the urus or European buffalo.
Horn pictured is a fair representation and therefore your horn will differ slightly from the image.
This is an organic product and as such it is recommended that you include a coating of beeswax or other food grade sealant. The item should be polished clean especially on the inside and if not then we are happy to replace.
We do not seal with lacquer as this is not suitable to re-enactors who want a more historical approach of using genuine beeswax. Beeswax is naturally antibacterial and therefore better than chemical based lacquer.
The vessel is safe to use but we still recommend a beeswax coating inside any organic food/drink vessel. See our video for tips on how to wax coat a horn.
You can use it without coating but depending on what you consume some future contamination of the vessel is possible.
