Technically not Viking...this is the Finnish equivalent of the Thor's hammer. This hammer pendant is called Ukko's Hammer, named after the pagan Finnish god Ukko. Ukko, like Thor is associated with thunder and is said to have given humans fire by striking his hammer and making lightning. A thunderstorm is still called "ukkonen" in Finland. You may note the hammer is not shaped much like a hammer and more like a fire steel. Our one is made out of iron, so you will not get it to spark.
More about the material and colour:
This pendant has been forged out of pure iron. The black surface colour is made oil quenching and then waxing with beeswax. This is a traditional method of protecting iron against the elements. our “About Us” section.
About the adjustable necklace:
The cord on this pendant is tied with two sliding knots. This allows the earer to decide what length to wear the necklace at. Leather is most suited for the style of the pendant, but we have other options available.
