The Viking amulet of protection and power – Thor’s hammer, Mjölnir (English: crusher), is a powerful symbol of Thor, the Norse God of thunder. Thor is a righteous God of great might and girth, whom mortals regard as the protector of mankind. His hammer, Mjölnir, was capable of leveling mountains and was so heavy that no one else was able to lift it from the ground. In today’s world, the Hammer of Thor can be worn as a way of honoring one’s Viking heritage, as a religious statement, or, quite often, just as a piece of good looking jewelry made with hand forged Damascus steel with a rich history.
