The original Thorís hammer pendants that have been found date from the 9th - 11th centuries, and curiously enough, they originate from areas of Scandinavia that had a large Christian population. It seems that the Scandinavians who remained Pagan adopted a reverse practice of the Christian propensity to wear the Cross.

Rather than being anathema to one-another, it seems that Christianity and the old Norse Gods co-existed in the lands of the Scandinavians for centuries. There is even a 10th century soapstone mold from Denmark that allows the caster to choose whether to cast a Cross or a Thorís Hammer - almost certainly an enterprising metalsmith cashing in on both sides of a market! The Icelandic Wolf-Crosses, which feature Norse symbolism in the form a cross, may be an example of religious syncretism.

This Thorís Hammer is crafted of solid copper and comes with a simple leather neck thong.

1.5'' Long
1.2 oz
