The Thors hammer, also known as Mjölnir, is the symbol of the thunder-god Thor. For a time, Thor was considered the highest Germanic god, especially among simple peasants and warriors. Scandinavian Jarls and Kings however, considered Odin as the highest god. According to mythology, the dwarf Brokk forged the Mjölnir. When thrown it never missed its mark. Thor successfully used the hammer against the giants, who threatened the divine dynasties Wan and Ase. Today the Thors hammer is worn as jewellery and talisman, especially as an expression of atheism and paganism 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.
