Thor’s Hammer

IMG_6420

I cut this from an ingot I reclaimed.  It is close to 1/8 thick.  The bail is riveted.  The hammer itself is about 1 1/2 long.  It feels very good in the hand.

This strong form appeals to me.  I like the idea that this design begins as a pagan symbol but was later viewed by Christians as a cruciform.

Here is a variant.  It’s 2 and 1/4 inches long, cut out of an ingot and forged.  It also has a riveted bail.

And another.  This is Sterling with a turned Osage Orange wood handle.  It’s only about 1 and 1/2 inches long.  It’s very cool.
