In Norse society, owning a sword was a matter of honor and a sign of status. Most Viking warriors would go on several raids before they could afford this expensive weapon as it took up to a month to forge a single blade. As a result, these weapons were greatly valued by their owners with sword hilts often elaborately decorated or the blades being named. Some of these prized swords were handed down the generations of warriors, and the older the blade was the more valuable it became. Others were buried with their owners, oftentimes with the swords being ‘killed’ by bending or shattering the blade to prevent grave robbers from separating owners and their weapons.

In Norse mythology, Fenrir is an enormous wolf that was prevented from causing death and chaos across the worlds by the Aesir Gods. Tricked by the Aesir, Fenrir was chained for an eternity and a sword was stuck in his mouth to prevent him from gnawing on his chains. Doing so was costly for the Aesir – Tyr, God of law and justice, had to sacrifice his hand to persuade Fenrir to walk into a trap. During the end of all worlds, Ragnarok, it is prophesied that Fenrir will break his chains and run rampart, his maw stretched by the sword so wide that this giant wolf will be able to devour both Moon and Sun in one bite.
