Ægishjálmur I Steel Sporran Flap
Presented in stark simplicity and deep, powerful lines, Celtic Leatherworks offers this classic Ægishjálmur in our Norse Magical Stave series. Ritualistic in nature, Magical Staves were used by men and women in Viking cultures for a variety of purposes. Some served as general protective icons, intended as a form of visual prayer. Others were more specialized in intent and function, and covered topics from the extraordinary (to make oneself invisible), to the mundane (favorable weather for fishing).
Though the Ægishjálmur was first mentioned in the Poetic Eddas, no extant contemporary example has been identified. However, the tradition of the Ægishjálmur remained a key feature of Norse culture for centuries. Our classic Ægishjálmur is pulled from the pages of a 17th-century Icelandic grimoire, the original illustration translated to leather in gorgeous simplicity.
This flap fits our Interchangeable style Rob Roy Sporrans. The flap is full grain vegetable tanned leather with the Helm of Awe embossed into it. The flap on this bag has been hand rubbed to give it a burnished brass and steel finish.
