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.
The Jorvik Thor's Hammer is a modern take on the classic hammer of the Viking period. The shaft is detailed with a design from a carved cross from the Isle of Man and depicts a Jelling style dragon. The design on the head of the hammer is taken from a bone trial piece found in the Coppergate excavations, York. It shows a typical style knotwork from the Viking period. It is interesting to note that the original carving from York was incomplete and we have finished it off for this new design.
This Mjolnir has been cast and hand finished in Scotland from 925 Sterling Silver.
The pendant comes on a black leather cord and hallmarked.
