Raids were a characteristic of the Scandinavian early medieval pirates called the Vikings. The Distressed Raider Viking Horn with Rack is polished on the inside. The included leather sword frog offers a custom fit with an adjustable leather cord. It's worth noting that raids similar to those conducted by the Vikings occurred in other parts of Europe during the Viking era. What made the Viking raids so notable was their success. This horn looks a little like drift wood with beautiful distress marks that add character and genuineness. Our Distressed Raider Viking Horn with Rack is the perfect accessory to a pirate costume to medieval renaissance festival attire. *Please wash with a gentle detergent and polish with vegetable oil to keep it from drying out. And from time to time you will want to use beeswax to coat the inside to keep from cracking and the inside drying out.
