    Google's a good place to start asking
    But Mjolnir is the name of Thor's Hammer, commonly worn as a necklace.

    It takes a bit of Work!

    I use to get a bunch of Horns from Tandy Leather company. They'd be well sanded on the outside and have most of the dried blood & flesh plug removed from inside. But they'd still be pretty dirty inside.

    1st I'd get some chlorinated dish-washer detergent.
    I'd set the horn up in an old nasty foam cooler, with weights of some kind to hold it up.
    I'd heat a teakettle of water, to boiling on the stove. I'd pour the horn about 2/3rds full of boiling water. Then I add a couple big tablespoons of the chlorinated dish-washer detergent(about a quarter cup or so, (give or take). Then fill to the top with the boiling water. It should bubble a bit.

    Let it sit over night. Next morning pour it out, down the commode.....don't want the nasties in a clean sink. Then scrub the horn out well with a tapered bottle brush. You might need to repeat this whole process a couple, 2 or 3 times to get the horn all good and clean inside.

    {You can alternately clean out the Horn with Denture Cleaner, Polident or another brand. In this case you do not need boiling water, just very warm, almost hot water. Fill the horn with the nearly Hot water and drop in 3 or 4 Tablets of the Denture Cleaner And let sit over-night. You might also need to do this a couple or 3 times.}
    When it is good and clean, "no slickness" from the organic stuff and your rinse water is clean..........Dry it well, a couple, 3 or 4 days.......and wax it.

    It is not an exact science.......Play it by ear, if you get my drift.

    I have hade a horn or two that were so rough inside when I got done cleaning them that I used a long piece, 12 to 15 inches, of heavy gauge wire, #9 or 8 gauge to clean and smooth them.

    I'd make a sharp crease in one end and bend it close. I'd cut 3/4 inch wide, 3 inch long strips of 100 or 150 grit sand paper 3 to 5 strips. I'd fold the strips in half and slide them in the fold of the heavy gauge wire.
    I'd chuck the other end of the wire in my variable-speed electric drill. Run it at a low speed. in & out of the horn, all the way down to the end. Do Not breathe the Dust made.........It is poison to Your Lungs.When you are done with that, rinse well & let dry sufficiently.

    As you can tell..........I have "made", that is conditioned, and carved Runes on a bunch of horns over the years, probably given away fifty or so.
    It's Fun and productive. Every Asatruar or Odinist ought to have his or her own horn.
