Large Animal Head Thors Hammer
Many years ago I wanted to make a large Thors Hammer with a fiercesome animal head. I took the form of the hammer from original Viking Age finds and gave it a thicker, stronger shape, emphasizing the pointed form. I added an animal head modelled on an original head from a Viking spur and carved the traditional ring chain pattern in the hammer shaft. The interlaced birds on the hammer head are my own inspiration.
Many Thors hammers have been found from the Viking Age, but this is my own design, inspired by traditional motifs. It is heavy and uncompromising.
Since I first designed this hammer, other people have copied it illegally, some even claiming it is an original design from the Viking Age.
But now you know the origin of my original large animal head Thors hammer.
