    Where to Buy A Mjollnir?

    The band Korpiklaani wear this hammer:

    I remember an Englishman contacting Jonne Järvelä about it and he ordered one from the same store, in Finland, some years ago now. This is the only image I have of it. Can anyone help? Click the image ot enlarge...

    Here they are wearing it:



    Also, where can you get a hammer like this with a ring. Again, click to enlarge...

    That combination is pretty similar. Both pendant and chain are based on Danish finds, the pendant being a stamp and dot pattern and the chain harbouring animal head clasps.

    This 7th century English find from Norfolk is quite similar in design, too:

    All items are produced by an Englishman in Sussex, England.

    I found the store, and some interesting information on its design:

    Ukonvasara (sort of finnish equivalent for Mjölnir)

    Kalevala Koru designs, produces and sells high quality gold, silver and bronze jewelry. Kalevala Koru is the largest jewelry manufacturer in Finland and one of the largest in Scandinavia. The ground of design is strongly based on Finnish and Scandinavian culture combining the historical heritage with modern life alike.
    Among their other nice designs, they've got this quite popular Ukonvasara [Ukko's hammer] pendant (they call it Thor's hammer in their website, but it's generally called Ukonvasara). I like it's simple design very much, and it's pretty strong too.

    Vindefense makes very nice hammers in wood. Here is one he made for me:




    I am VERY pleased with this hammer, it is the nicest one I've seen.
    They are all personally made for YOU, so nobody else will have the same one.
    Havnt seen anyone wearing these kind of hammers, only mass produced one based on finds (I have two of these in silver). I am abit afraid to lose this hammer, so I only wear it on special times when I want to look extra nice. Like the 17th of May Vindefence is very helpful and you can tell him how you want your hammer made.

    Does anyone know where to buy this hammer that looks exactly like this? I used ot have one that I randomly found at a market, it was made from pewter and exactly like this. Unfortunately, I seem to have misplaced it.

    I believe it to be a popular Thor's Hammer that is based on the 1,000 year old pendant found at Rømersdal, on the island of Bornholm, Denmark, and is in the Danish National Museum in Copenhagen.



    The only place I could find is here: http://www.vikingjewellry.com/thorshammers.php



    However, this only comes in silver and bronze for £30 and £15.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    And this one is only slightly similar: https://wodanesdag.com/th650.html



    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I have also found this one, which is cast in silver, the price is $40 - http://www.ragweedforge.com/ThorsHammer.html



    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    But I am looking for one exactly like the first image.
