To discover the secret magic of theRunes, Odin hung himself from a branch of Yggdrasil, pierced himself with his spear, and peered downward into the shadowy waters of the Well of Urd, a pool of fathomless depths that held the Norns, the maidens of fate themselves. For nine days and nights the Allfather tethered between life and death in his self imposed ordeal. At the end of the ninth night, from the depths of the Well of Urd he finally learned the secret of the runes. Honor the Allfather sacrifice by displaying the might of the Runes to all Midgard! The Viking Rune Ring is 100% made of 316L stainless steel, a nickel and molybdenum alloy known for its sturdiness and corrosion resistance. The ring is 8mm wide.
