Do you want to have a piece of jewellery with a story? You're going to love this necklace, The Mammen Axe™ !
When people think of Vikings and weapons, they think about the axe! Indeed, one of the main offensive weapons of the Vikings was the battle-axe.
Not only was the axe carried for battle, it also symbolized their owners' status and wealth. Therefore the axes were often decorated with inlays and other adornments in silver, copper and bronze.
Laws of the Vikings show that all free Vikings were expected to own weapons. Besides using the axe for battle, it was also a ready to use tool for woodworks.
Many aspects of the Vikings still remain mysterious, like the Valknut symbol. Valknut's built up in two words: 'Valr' and 'knut'. Valr means 'slain warriors' and knut means 'knot'; The Slain Warriors Knot.
The Valknut symbol has nine points accumulated from the three triangles. Tracing back within the mythology, one can suggest the nine points are related to the nine Viking worlds connected by the tree Yggdrasil.
One thing is certain. The Valknut symbol is a remembrance to the slain warriors that fought for the good of the Vikings, representing sacrifice, love, strength, honour love and dedication.
This necklace is the perfect way to express your true Viking Heart!
