Quick information

About the Design

The design is riddled with references to the bracteates found that honor Tyr. These are kind of hard to find on the internet, but I’ve found a great site that features what seems to be most of them over here

The main chant is featured on some of the swords, as well as other phrases like “Aid me Tyr”, “Provide me with strength Tyr” and just the three Tiwaz runes and name of Tyr is present throughout the design. I’ve composed below almost every detail on this item. Some small small details will be left out so you can decipher these when you decide to get this or from the pictures here :)


Left arm

The left arm consist of a stacked and stylized Tiwaz rune on the shoulder with swords around it that clash on the lower part. This is the law and ruling hand of Tyr on this design to symbolize strength, power and determination. The chants written in runes run around the arm as well reading “LAÞU LAUKAR GAKAR ALU” which is up for debate what it means but one possibility is it reads “let healing tread nearby” – the latter part ALU is often found on many runic inscriptions and is speculated to be associated with Ale which ties into the Mead of Poetry. It held an important meaning when these inscriptions were made and was likely a way to empower or underline a certain ability. Nowaday a lot of languages still have hints to this word ALU for example in Estonian it’s ÕLU, Lithuanian ALAUS.


Right arm
The right arm consists of Fenrir swallowing half of the hand to pay homage to the story where Tyr lost his arm to the large wolf when the gods tried to bind him. The gods brought different chains to shackle Fenrir as the wolf was growing so large that they became afraid of him and Odin had heard that during Ragnarokkr – that the allfathers faith would end in the hands of Fenrir. Thus the gods decided to bind him, fooling him into a competition to see how many chains he could break, hoping that they could lock him down. But the great wolf broke all the chains that were tried. Eventually the gods had the best craftsmen, the dwarves, create a shackle made of impossible things like the sinew of a bear and the beards of women. Fenrir saw this measly thing that he was about to be chained with and didn’t trust it – so he asked one of the gods to place their hand between it’s jaws in case they are trying to trick him. Tyr was the only one up to take this task as back then breaking an oath was the worst thing one could do, honor had great value. So as Fenrir understood that he can’t break free he locked his jaws and broke off Tyr’s hand. A sword was placed between Fenrirs jaws so he could not howl while locked away – the sword is present in this design as well with the runes reading “Fenrir” on it. The lower part of Fenrir is stylized in a pattern similar to the Viking age art as well as a rune row running through it with the chants towards Tyr – this is to symbolize the chain that is made of impossible things, it wouldn’t look regular but something very otherwordly.


Backside
The back side features the face of Tyr. The noseguard is the Irminsul, with the beard composing of swords that have been engraved with a swirling design. The moustache is a stylized with elements to give the figure of a drinking horn. They eyeguards and helm elements are made up of swords as well due to the association with war that Tyr has. The helm split part is a spear that runs through the suncross symbol to hint at the oath Tyr broke when binding Fenrir, it shades the sun but then again it was a necessary step that seemed right at the time. The design branches out with a circle of stacked Tiwaz runes which roots read out Tiwaz in Elder Futhark. Further out the design is finished with swords engraved with chants towards Tyr and to invoke the powers of Tyr, these are different Viking age sword models.


Other parts
The front repeats the part seen on the left arm but instead of a stacked Tiwaz rune it features the sun cross inside it. The sleeves and waist contain the chants for Tyr and the hoodie contains the stacked Tiwaz rune rows with the rune chants, the inside of the hoodie is finished with an Oseberg pattern
