Product Description

This right hand horn is 14″ around the outside curve and 11.5″ tip to tip, not including the stopper. The cherry base plug is 2.29″ in diameter. The tip is horn and antler. The stopper is walnut. While this is a traditional right hand horn. the engraved panels are positioned so that they look right when the horn is worn on either side.

The horn is colored with a little ferric nitrate prior to starting the engraving giving it a light yellow base. The ink is Windsor & Newton drawing ink. I finished up with some Tried and True oil on both the wood and horn followed by a coat of wax.
