    when somebody wears a necklace with a heathen symbol and he does so for a long time the object is going to be charged with the energy of that person.


    If you have an animal make an experiment.

    charge a bite with positive energy of strength, love and health
    then another one with evil thoughts.

    offer both to the cat and see what happens.

    repeat until you are sure of what happens.

    I remember a story of a farmhand who did a favour for a troll and ended up buying a magical scythe from him (in exchange for a loaf of bread). It came with the warning to never, ever look at the edge. The scythe worked like magic and cut everything and never needed resharpening. Then, while drunk, he decided to test it and cut off a stone fence post. Now surely, he thought, the edge would be destroyed and, drunk as he was, looked at it. After that day the scythe never took an edge again no matter how he tried to sharpen it.
    I think you could be right about that. They would seem to control them-self in your hand. Although traditionally enchanted keris from Indonesia and Malaysia, have been said to rattle in their sheath to alert the owner to danger. Or spin on their own when placed on a table under some circumstances. I have read a few eye witness accounts of this.

    What if the laws of nature are more complex than we give them credit for. Then magic would just be nature we have not fully understood and are affect on it.

    Scribing Runes..............

    I have several times used a metal Scribing tool to scribe or engrave Runes on Knives, Swords, a Spear and Hammers.

    On Knives or other edged Weapons I have scribe Tyr or Tiwaz Runes, to call on Tyr to give them strength and good use.
    On Hammers I have scribed Thorn Runes and Swastikas, to give them Thor's
    Strength and power.
    On Staffs or Wands, I have carved the Ansuz Rune or Odin's name or the complete Rune row, of the Elder Futhark, to give them contact with Odin.

    Does it work? Are they made Better, in some way? I like to think so.
    I think it is at least partly in the Perception of the Believer.
    I do know several Folks who have done likewise. I can't speak for them, or if it works for them. They probably think so. Else, why do it??

    I concur. Considering the fact that we use not even half of our brains, it's no surprise that we think of magick and the arcane/ esoteric as "superstition," "childishness," "fantasy," "for the brainwashed," "ignorant," ad nauseum. The majority of us (myself excluded of course) do so due to our inability to grasp matter of a nature that transcends the mundane. Go figure. Most of us can't even solve mathematical problems without the aid of a calculator. Technology and modernism has rendered us retarded just about and with that said, is it any wonder as to why we no longer bother to attempt to fathom that of which is mysterious and mystical and obscure? Of course not. After all, most of us seem to only acknowledge the existence of a physical and psychological level/ plane and ignore the the existence of the spiritual and astral bodies, the two aspects of our being which complete us. To each their own though. This is only my two cents on this matter.

    In the lore the magical weapons may have been a symbol for something else. The sword is known to be a symbol for the 'I': Sharp, steel hard, a weapon.

    This is an interesting concept... I was reading just yesterday about Damascus steel made by the muslims, it was far superior to anything in europe and though europeans tried to copy it they were unable to do so.

    The muslims then lost the knowleage of how to make it, it has been a long standing mystery ever since.

    Using an electron microsope scientists have been studying some of this steel to understand what it is that makes it different.

    As is turns out, due to small additives of organic plants and minerals during forging and smithing they were unknowingly creating twisted nano tubes of carbon compund which led to great hardness without the problem of being brittle.

    It turns out they did not lose the knowleage, the iron ore being mined and sold to them changed which was enough to make their methods ineffective after that point, hence the technology was lost.

    Something as small as a groove or even a symbol in the right place could potentially have significant effect upon a sword or other weapon.

    I do not know if I go to the point of magic or anything like that, but there are so many small details that often escape our attention. If you are taught to put small amounts of common materials into a weapon and to place certaing symbols or runes in a specific way to imrove charateristics of the weapon without understanding the atomic or molecular changes you create, it would seem like magic. I think that some of the ancient mythological weapons may have actually existed, add in a bity of embellishment for story telling purposes.
