I just finished up another rum horn; this one is a Christmas gift to a friend and retired coworker who lost his wife this year. I’d like to hear your thoughts of the design and craftsmanship. “A Mule’s Ear of Rum” is a saying my friend used nearly every afternoon when we got off work. He says that’s about four ounces lol. Thanks and Merry Christmas!

Looks nice. Still can’t figure out why you don’t put the drinking hole on the belly of the horn to enable getting the last drop of liquor effortlessly.
Down below the letter R instead of up above the letter A.

remember that they were used as POISON HORNS_ filled with poison so that the INDIAN that killed me- I also killed him. because every time an INDIAN killed a person that carried one of them immediately went for the horn like a fly to sh%%, and the rest is history. just a little piece of unknown history.

Interesting, I read a lot and never have read that. Might get one of your buddy's also, him figuring you no longer needed your rum .
