Why Did I use S30V?
It is American Made Steel for One Thing.
CPM S30V is a martensitic powder made stainless steel which was developed by Dick Barber of Crucible Materials Corporation in collaboration with knifemaker Chris Reeve as a knifemaking steel due to its wear and corrosion resistance.
Its chemistry promotes the formation and even distribution of vanadium carbides which are harder and more effective at cutting than chromium carbides.
In addition, vanadium carbides give the steel a very refined grain which further contributes to the sharpness and toughness of its edge.
Its composition is as follows: Carbon 1.45%, Chromium 14.00%, Vanadium 4.00%, Molybdenum 2.00%.
Knifemakers prefer using CPM S30V because its composition makes it easy to consistently heat treat as well as easier to grind although the carbides wear down the grinder belts.
According to Custom Knifemakers, knife users prefer S30V because it provides a strong blade with a maintainable edge due to the Vanadium carbides.
Why did I use Bronze Handles?
The Nordic Bronze Age (1700-500 BC)
Mjöllnir simply means "crusher," referring to its pulverizing effect.
Mjöllnir is the most fearsome weapon in the arsenal of the Viking pantheon, used to slay any challengers to Æsir supremacy.
While referred to as a club, an ax, and a hammer, Mjöllnir was thought to be capable of toppling giants and entire mountains with a single blow.
Legend surrounding the war hammer’s origins vary: some relate that ’The Black Elves’, or dwarves, Sindri and Brokk made it at the behest of the calculating Loki; other tales contend that it descended to earth as a meteorite.
As the Viking gods were often only as powerful as the tools and weapons they possessed, Mjöllnir is a pivotal archetype for the survival and perpetuation of all Vikings and their customs.
In its mythic context, one can conclude that without Mjöllnir, Thor’s ability to maintain the cosmic equilibrium would be imperiled by giants, the sea-dwelling world serpent, and possibly, even reckless gods.
So in Conclusion, some of the earliest Mjöllnir figures are made from Bronze, it only makes sense that the religious aspet to the Viking Gods started in 2000 BC which is very close to the Nordic Bronze Age at 1700 BC. So Valhalla Cutlery wanted to make a symbolic model that depicted heritage and had meaning and dept to the concept of its creation.
