Mjölnir is the hammer of the God Thor, who temporary was known as the Major God in Germanic paganism, especially with free farmers and warriors. Swedish jarls and kings on the contrary mostly took Odin as their Major God. In mythology the dwarf Brokk forged Mjölnir. It was said that Mjölnir, when thrown, would never fail its aim. Using this fearsome weapon Thor defeated the giants that always threatened Vanir and Æsir. Today Mjölnir is known as jewellery and talisman, but most of all as a symbol for paganism and atheism in a Christian
environment. The Mjölnir is hand-forged from one piece.
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.
