Powder HornPowder horn full image

This is a white and "blonde" horn, with great potential for scrimshaw work! It can use the touch of a fine craftsman to complete the shaping as desired. The horn itself was an excellent quality one purchased from Keith Wilbur. We are told this quality horn is hard to find these days. Todd Bitler made and fitted the butt plate. There is a plain wood plug in the tip. The horn belonged to a friend of ours who simply no longer had need of a powder horn. It has never been used, so to the best of our knowledge has never had powder in it.

We will only ship this horn within the continental US.
