Viking drinking horns have a long and storied history in Norse culture. They were often used during feasts and celebrations, and were a symbol of hospitality and generosity. The horns were usually filled with mead, which was a popular alcoholic beverage made from fermented honey. In addition to being used for drinking, horns were also used as a decorative item and were often adorned with intricate carvings and engravings.
While drinking horns were primarily used by Vikings, they were also used by other cultures throughout history. For example, the ancient Greeks and Romans also used drinking horns during feasts and celebrations. Today, drinking horns are still popular among fans of Norse mythology and are frequently used at medieval-themed events and Renaissance fairs.

Aegishjalmur is one of the most famous Icelandic magical staves or galdrastafir.
The galdrastafir were symbols believed to have a range of powers such as fertility, guidance through a storm, and protection in battle. Those effects would be different depending on their shape.

Pronounced “EYE-gis-hiowlm-er”, this rune was used to protect warriors and to instill fear in their enemies.
The name can be broken down into two parts: ‘ægis-’ meaning of terror/awe, and ‘-hjálmr’ meaning helm or covering.
In the Old Norse poem known as the Poetic Edda, by Snorri Sturluson, the Helm of Awe was a physical object taken from the dragon Fáfnir’s hoard. Fáfnir was once a dwarf, who turned into a dragon after becoming cursed by the treasure he guarded. He used Ægishjálmr to defend his treasure against those who would try to steal it. The hero known as Sigurd slew the dragon and took Ægishjálmr from him. The symbol was utilized in later centuries and was worn between the brows of warriors to assist them in battle.

Each natural horn tankard boasts a carved design and polished wood on the bottom. Hand-carved with care, the tankard feature a beautiful Aegishjalmur symbol.
Available in two sizes, to suit the needs of all heavy drinkers, these large tankards are perfect for sharing with fellow Viking enthusiasts.
