To ensure your makau carved from horn stands the test of time, simply wipe it down with a soft, dry cloth every now and then to keep it clean and free from residue or grease. Over time if black horn is introduced to too much water or salt water it may splint on the surface of the hook. This may or may not happen after a few years time of normal wear and tear for someone who wears this regularly. Avoid contact with water and harsh chemicals, as these can cause discoloration or damage. It is also recommended to store the pendant in a cool, dry place and away from direct sunlight.
