Our blowing horns are made from animal horn - usually a bovine - with a hole cut in the pointed end. It comes with a hidden metal reed mouth piece which creates the sound when blown, and features a leather cord that can be attached to a belt or slung on the shoulder.
The mouthpiece can be removed if desired.

A blowing horn can be used for battle calls and signalling over long distances as the shape creates a natural amplification for sound. Like modern trumpets the sound is made from the pressure and rapid vibration of lips.
Many horns were used as sounding cries by ancient societies.
Clean, polished and ready to use.
