THE CLASSIC HELM OF AWE: THE ÆGISHJÁLMUR I CUFF
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 is the Ægishjálmur I Leather Cuff. It features a Helm of Awe embossed on the leather and surrounded by Celtic knot work to create a beautiful leather band. This cuff is a one size fits all bracelet with buckles and has five holes for sizing at 7, 7.5, 8, 8.5, and 9 inches. You can just clip off any excess length with kitchen shears. Measurements are 3 inches wide by 7-9 inches long. If you need a different size than what is available, please email me.
