Forged Hunting Wolf Viking Knotwork Ring. This Premium Ring is from our Handcrafted Viking Forge Line.

Vegvisir, the Viking Compass, is first recorded in the Huld Manuscript, compiled by Geir Vigfusson in the 19th century. It depicts the Vegvisir symbol, which means “that which shows the way”, combining “vegur” which means way, with “visir”, which means pointer.
Vikings Slavic Wheel Sigil Ring. This Premium Stainless Steel Ring is from our Handcrafted Viking Forge Line.
Odin is well-known as the Norse god of war, but he was also the Norse god of wisdom. In fact, he was obsessed with knowledge, and would do almost anything to get it, including plucking out his own eye, and hanging himself from the tree of life for nine days and nine nights, while pierced by his own spear.
This Viking symbol of three interlocking horns refers to another one of Odin’s quests for knowledge. He tricked a giantess into thinking that he loved her in order to drink the Mead of Poetry, which would give him ultimate power over the spoken word. The mead was held in three giant drinking horns, and Odin eventually drank all three. If you have a passion for knowledge, especially in the form of the written word, then this is the ideal symbol for you. It is delivered in an authentic Mammen design, a form of Viking art that was popular in Denmark in the last 10th century. The result is a genuine piece of Viking craftsmanship.

He was often viewed as someone wrongfully chained in an attempt to prevent the fulfillment of his destiny.
