Brass replica of 1000-year-old Thors Hammer found in Skane, Sweden.
In Norse mythology, Mjolnir is the hammer of Thor. For a time Thor was the highest Germanic god, especially among free pheasants and warriors. The Scandinavian kings believed in Odin as the highest god. In mythology the dwarf Brokk forged the Mjolnir. It is said to be the most fearsome weapon in Norse mythology that never missed its mark. It is often referred to as either a club, axe, or hammer, and is capable of toppling giants and destroying mountains with a single blow. Today the Thors hammer is worn as ornament or lucky charm, or else as a symbol of paganism and atheism in a Christian community.
In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
