The "Ukonvasara" is known widely as the Finnish Thor's Hammer. Ukko "Old man" was the name commonly used for the sky god, who governed over the weather, thunder, the crops & fertility and judgement. He was known as the "high god". Wether this is because of his physical placement in the sky or being the chief god of the Finnish Pantheon, is unclear. His help was asked when heavenly intervention or a sign was needed, on the battle field, in a trial by combat, hunting, giving birth or growing the crops.
