Gullrum Comb Pendant

This is a forged iron arrowhead, replicated in silver or bronze. About 3" long, it actually
has the socket for the arrow shaft, and could be mounted on an arrow if you like (3/8" shaft). It would
be just the thing for a bit of period vampire hunting.
It could also be considered a minature spearhead as a symbol of Odin.

In Viking times small whetstones were often worn as pendants. These are reproductions
of whetstone pendants found in a Viking Age ship wreck at Kalåstad, Norway. Similar pendants
have been found in York, Birka, and Gotland. They are cut from Jasper, the cutting action
somewhere between hard black Arkensas and translucent Arkansas stones.
That means they are very fine, and suitable for final edge and polish rather than
removing nicks from a damaged blade. They vary in color and size, but are mostly
muted reds and greens, and about 3" tall, 11/16" wide, and 1/4" thick. Some of them
are quite striking, but I expect the best sharpening would be achieved with the plainer ones.
If you let me know your preference I'll try to oblige. Each comes with a string and descriptive
packaging. Imported from Sweden, the price is $12

This is an image found wherever the Norse traveled, from Dublin to Kiev.
It is still in widespread use today as protection charm for travelers. It is painted on the ends of Gipsy
and Tinker wagons, and has appeared on traveling boxes since the Viking Age. The image is of Fenris
bound, seemingly by his own tongue. The pose is typical, with the head twisted backward so he is
looking over his shoulder, and the tongue entangling the feet.
#5108; This medallion is the result of a chance encounter with an Irish hitchhiker. He was wearing a medallion
that was obviously ancient, and of interesting design. He said it had been in his family for at least 200
years, and had been passed down from eldest son to eldest son. Since he was traveling to America, his
father gave him the medallion for protection on the journey. Although it was well worn, this is what that
medallion might have looked like when it was new. (1.2" dia.)

Lur horns are huge bronze horns used for signaling down the fjord

It's guaranteed to send shivers up your spine! You really
wouldn't want to live in a lonely Irish coastal village, and hear
that sound from the sea on a foggy morning!
