Care of Utensils made from Horn

haldJune 16, 2008

Saturday I bought a set of serving pieces made of Water Buffalo horn (A salad set, cake cutter, honey dipper, and rice scoop). Does anyone know if they require special cleaning or care to keep them looking nice? The lady at the store didn't know...

Thanks in advance -

Buffalo Horn & Mombassa Collections
The horn used in all of our horn items is Buffalo Horn. Needless to say, it is harvested naturally and no buffaloes are killed for it. Because of the nature of the material, colorations may vary (generally from tan to dark brown) and sizes are approximate. Pieces may come with small indentations or other individual markings that may be perceived as imperfections but are really not. We think they add to the natural beauty and elegance of these products.

Hand wash your piece with mild dish soap and water, and towel dry.
Do not use abrasives or clean in automatic dishwashers.
Food should be removed soon after serving. Leaving food for extended periods may result in discoloration  especially highly acidic or salty foods such as salad dressings, vinegars, tomatoes, or other fruits.
