Pewter Drakkar Thor's Hammer
This Thor's hammer is hand made in the UK in fine English Pewter and is detailed with knotwork and a dragon head inspired by the Drakkar Viking longships and hangs on a black waxed cord which fastens with a black pewter slide fastener for adjustment.
Thor's Hammer, also known as Mjölnir is the legendary and fearsome weapon of Thor the Norse god of thunder and lightening, and the protector of mankind. The hammer was made by the Dwarven brothers Eitri and Brokkr.
Longships were potentially called skeiðar (sing. skeið) if they were extremely long, serpent- or drakkar ships when dragon-heads were present. They used both oars and sails to reach their frighteningly high speeds which were so instrumental to the Viking raiders’ hit-and-run tactics. They were also narrower than most of the ships from the early Viking Age; the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde, Denmark, states that archaeologically, ships have to be at least five times as long as they were wide to be classified as longships.
Designed and hand made in fine English pewter (lead, cadmium & nickel compliant)
