Anyone know where I can find a good drinking horn online?

I have found a ton of sites, but I don't know who to trust.
I want to find a nice big horn... scratch that, i want a HUGE drinking horn!

Nothing fancy, but a bronze final and/or ring would be nice but is not necessary.

The only place I have found with stuff I really like is based in Europe and charges through the teeth though ($300+). I don't feel like spending more than $150.

Wassail Horns

That place looks trustworthy enough and has decentish prices. ($80 for a huge one)

I found mine in a pawn shop. The tag attached to the chain was in Cyrillic. It isn't huge but it holds a very generous portion of mead. I lined the interior with beeswax.

Keep an eye out for local Scottish games or Renaissance fairs. They are widely available and definately under 300 bucks for a nice one.

I purchased a small horn (6 oz.) this weekend at the Shrewsbury Faire for mead. Huge horns are rare & so they cost. Add metal work & that just jacks the price more.

Your best bet is probably to go to Northern California Renaissance Faire That faire runs until 12 Oct. and Wassail Horns should be there.

Or you could sneak over to my neighbor's farm late one night. (This isn't a picture from his place, but he has about 30 of them)

There are several drinking horns on EBAY now at reasonable prices.

I got mine at the Maryland RenFest about 10 years ago for $30. Holds 2.5 12oz bottles.

Someday I'd like to get someone to put a rim and finial on it.

I'd like to get a drinking horn- there's no better way to celebrate on the rugby pitch!

david_42, I think I saw that herd of longhorns on my way up to Camp Cooper a few weeks ago. Pretty cool.
