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 blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
