Randy Hedden Eastern Style Buffalo Powder Horn

This horn is 14 inches long, from spout to top of butt plug, along the outside curve and is 3-1/4" in diameter at the large end. The cow horn screw tip is 2-1/2" long and has a tapered bore to accept the tapered ebony wood spout plug. The butt plug is American Black Walnut and has chip carving and a cut rope pattern that are reminiscent of York County, Pennsylvania screw tip powder horns.

The entire horn has a hand scraped finish. The spout end of the horn has a finer scraped finish then the butt end of the horn. This was purposely done to further accentuate the demarcation from the spout/throat area of the horn to the actual body of the horn.

Provisions for mounting a strap are provided by a staple in the throat of the horn and a staple in the butt plug.
