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. 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.
Materials: 100% Ankole cow horn, locally sourced + 100% pure brass, locally sourced
Size: approx. 5" L, 1" W (slight variation in size is expected)
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.
