Aegishjalmur is one of the most famous Icelandic magical staves or galdrastafir.
The galdrastafir were symbols believed to have a range of powers such as fertility, guidance through a storm, and protection in battle. Those effects would be different depending on their shape.

Pronounced “EYE-gis-hiowlm-er”, this rune was used to protect warriors and to instill fear in their enemies.
The name can be broken down into two parts: ‘ægis-’ meaning of terror/awe, and ‘-hjálmr’ meaning helm or covering.
In the Old Norse poem known as the Poetic Edda, by Snorri Sturluson, the Helm of Awe was a physical object taken from the dragon Fáfnir’s hoard. Fáfnir was once a dwarf, who turned into a dragon after becoming cursed by the treasure he guarded. He used Ægishjálmr to defend his treasure against those who would try to steal it. The hero known as Sigurd slew the dragon and took Ægishjálmr from him. The symbol was utilized in later centuries and was worn between the brows of warriors to assist them in battle.

This leather cuff bracelet is made of premium leather. The original design is carefully embossed on the piece, which has been subjected to a handmade aging process identical to those used in Hollywood movies so that the piece seems directly drawn from an epic fantasy story.

The size of the laced version ranges from 15 to 22 cm
