Abbeyhorn Restock

We received a reorder of the Abbeyhorn hand carved shoehorns today. Carved from Oxen horn no animal is ever killed solely for the horns, they are a by-product of the meat industry.

Each horn is uniquely different due to its color and texture. As a result the carver must work with the horn while carving to bring out the special quality of each, and no two are exactly alike.

Leffot stocks three sizes 7.5, 12, 18 inches all of which are extremely lightweight and incredibly beautiful.
