    Very nice, do you line them with wax or pitch?

    The Hydra one is lined with wax, but the first three I experimented with cleaning them in bleach-water and then vinegar-water and finally curing with beer. It seems to work pretty well, as they don't smell or anything.

    Hi apwordsmith, very nice looking horns, I like the twisted one best. Here's a drinking horn I have had for almost 10 years, and my wife's ( the one with the edelweiss flowers) both made by my best friend. It was his gift to me on my wedding day. It holds exactly 24 ounces. He sealed mine with natural beeswax that was died with black berries and my wife's was left natural.

    Another view. The transparency around the top allows the blood color of the beeswax to shine through.
