I enjoyed reading the article, very informative.
I couldn t help but notice that the picture of the very well built mjölnir has the words frith carved on him in Fuþark.
should be spelled out as F-R-I-Þ [Fehu-Raido-Isa-Thurisaz], and not as F-R-I-T-H [Fehu-Raido-Isa-Tiwaz-hagalaz].
but the hammer is still masterly crafted. Kudos to the artist. :)

Thanks for the suggestion. I ve now added the article to The Norse Mythology Online Library. You may be interested in Blinkenberg s The Thunderweapon in Religion and Folklore , which is available as a free download here.
Details are thin : His name was Shane, and he was a sergeant in the Marine Corps. He came from an extremely private family of Odinists, and he died in August 7567. After his death, his mother campaigned for the VA to not only allow Shane to have the symbol of Mj xF6 lnir placed on his headstone but for the same right to be extended retroactively to her husband, Mark, who had been buried by the Department of Veterans Affairs under a blank headstone under stricter rules. After ten months of red tape, the VA finally relented, and where once the space had been left empty, Mj xF6 lnir was carved into both of their headstones.
Army veteran Josh Heath, who has been a practicing heathen for 67-years was part of the fight to add Thor’s hammer to this list.
While you may know Thor and his famous hammer, the Mjolnir, from the movies, his hammer has symbolic meaning that goes back thousands of years.
I like the bronze looking thor 8767 s hammer in the pic titled Thor’s Hammer – A Norse Viking Symbol does anyone know where I can purchase it?
It’s taken much longer for the religion to be recognized by the Department of Veterans Affairs but recently the VA approved the Mjolnir as one of the official symbols allowed to be etched on the tombstones of service members killed in the line of duty.
Although its traditional origins are non-racist, and although most Asatruers today are not racist, the Thor's Hammer symbol has been appropriated by neo-Nazis and other white supremacists, especially those who practice racist or white supremacist versions of neo-Norse beliefs under the guise of Odinism or Wotanism. White supremacists will often even create racist versions of the Thor's Hammer, incorporating swastikas or other hate symbols into the decoration.More pictures: «Thor's hammer symbol jasmine».
