Cow Horn Bottle Opener

Product Details

Made from ethically sourced, hand-selected Ugandan cow horn and recycled, industrial scrap brass, this completely unique bottle opener is essential for the bar. Valued for both its hardness and its ability to become soft and pliable when heated, Ankole cattle horn has been used by East Africans for centuries. This natural horn bottle opener was hand carved on a lathe, and then shaped and molded at high temperatures to fit perfectly in your hand. It was meticulously sanded and then polished for a smooth and shiny finish. The brass piece was measured and cut out by hand from a solid 3mm brass sheet, was sanded and then buffed to perfection. It makes cracking open a beer an even better experience than it already was!

Due to the considerable size of Ankole horns and their wide range of naturally occurring colors, this bottle opener is truly one-of-a-kind; no two are exactly alike. Ankole cow horn is indigenous to East Africa, making this material extremely rare.

Each bottle opener is individually crafted from start to finish by an artisan in a fair trade environment in Uganda. Imperfections are expected and contribute to the uniqueness of your handmade good.

CARE: Because this natural bottle opener is made of pure horn, which is made up of keratin protein, there are special considerations for its proper care. If needed, wipe clean with a soft cloth. It is important to avoid leaving your horn items near heat sources or in direct sunlight, as warm temperatures can cause the horn to dry out or change shape. Over time, the pure brass will develop a unique patina. If you prefer to maintain the sheen of the brass, a brass polish may be used.
