This solid pewter Thor's Hammer is based on an original Viking age one from Romesdal, Denmark. Our master was made by open casting into a soapstone mold (based on a viking age find). The rough hammer shaped was then beaten until flat, and the design was then punched in. The original would have been made in a similar way. Mjolnir was a symbol of destructive power, but it was also a symbol of healing and protection and security from evil and violent forces.
