Ainkhürn is the name for the narwhal's tusk, insofar as it was used as a handicraft or material with an allegedly magical protective effect. The name has its origin in the fact that in the Middle Ages the tooth was thought to be the horn of the unicorn. It was therefore mainly used for rulers' insignia.
THE LAST UNICORN.
