Asgard Viking & Pictish Chains

AV004-CK - Mjolnir on Knit Chain

This is a solid pewter Mjolnir or Thor's hammer replica of one from the Viking period that was found in Denmark. The dragon heads are also solid pewter and the stunning viking knitted chain and hanging loop are stainless steel.

The chain is made of stainless steel using the trichinopoly method, also known as 'viking knit'. While it is not as flexible as a true chain composed of seperate links, it is strong and comfortable to wear. The technique was used in the Viking age for suspension chains and necklaces. The pewter dragon heads are based on a pair found in Norway and are in the Urnes style of the 11th Century.

The total length of the chain is approx. 74cm. The whole piece weighs approx. 65g.
