This bone is from the forleg of a Scottish deer. Unlike treated bone, this still contains its natural marrow, which produces oil on the surface of the bone. When used for polishing leather the natural oil combines with the hard, semi-porous surface to provide a unique polishing accessory. This is one of the essential items in caring for cordovan leather (refer to shoe care guide). Abbeyhorn was established in 1749 in Bewdley, Worcestershire by the Humpherson family. In 1912 the horn works moved south to Gloucester, then, 20 years later, to its present site in Kendal, near England’s Lake District. Abbeyhorn have, over their 265-year history, developed a reputation for making the world’s finest natural horn products. Made with immense skill and using the finest materials, an Abbeyhorn product exudes refinement and luxury as well as being a beautiful and practical item. The company sources its cow horn from the Ankole cattle of West Africa, which are one of the few sub-species of cow that still grows long horns. Abbeyhorn also uses natural Scottish stag antler, cow bone and buffalo horn in many of its products. All Abbeyhorn’s materials (apart from the stag antlers, which fall off naturally) are sourced as ethically as possible as by-products of the meat industry.
