- Ancient Greeks and Romans were known to use horns for drinking vessels
- The ancient Greek term for a drinking horn was simply keras, which means ‘horn’
- In the prose Edda, Thor is challenged to drink from a horn that unknown to him contains all the seas. He manages to drink a remarkable part of its content and thereby scares Útgarða-Loki and his kin.
Your horn is made from genuine Indian water buffalo horn, a product made from real kerotin. It was handcrafted, and therefore each horn is unique in its own special way thanks to the artist and variations in each individual horn. This horn has been created especially for food use, but we do advise that you take proper care of it in order to keep the horn in good condition for continued use.
In order to best care for your genuine horn product, please avoid washing it in the dishwasher or with strong solvents, detergents, and/or chemicals. Use mild soap and lukewarm water, and towel dry immediately after washing. Do not microwave your horn or use it for hot liquids, as this can melt the inner coating and extreme temperature swings can cause the horn to crack. Avoid rubbing your horn against sharp objects, as its surface can scratch. Keep your horn out of extreme heat or cold.
