Q: Can you carve a Viking Drinking Horn?

A: I can custom make you a drinking horn. I will only do what I'm comfortable doing.

If you want to order a custom job you will have to email  of what you want. I will let you know if I can do it. If I can then you will have to pay for the horn up front then will be charged using PayPal $15 for each hour I work on the horn.

Q: My drinking mug/cup is leaking HELP?

A: If your horn mug is leaking, find where it is leaking by putting water in it. Once you find the leak let the mug dry out. Use nail hardener or a hard glue where the leak is on the inside of the horn mug and the outside. Let it set for several hours. Then if you want use sandpaper on the outside to sand down the hardener.
