Long original horn
« on: June 09, 2023, 09:12:26 PM »
I got this off eBay. Seller did not disclose the glued crack or replaced plug, but Iíll take it. Very light and easy to see powder level through the thin walls. Iíll probably use this one for shoots and woods walks but not hunting where Iíve been known to crawl through rocks on a stalk. I think there is a small chance it once was lobed. There are remnants of what could be 2 holes spaced right at the plugís edge. Overall very pleasing shaping and an attractive simple horn to me.

 Meat horn Bud, I like that treatment at the tip, I don't think I have seen that before. Looks almost like it is delaminating rather than a crack, easily fixed.

Nice little pocket horn. I also think the treatment on the tip of the spout is nice. I've never seen that either.
