More on Valknut:

This symbol, characterized by three interwoven or interlinked triangular shapes, is seen everywhere from Anglo-Saxon jewelry to early Viking Age grave artifacts and Swedish runestones.

The name translates literally to “knot of the warriors,” or something similar, although this is a modern attribution. The ancient name and purpose for the symbol is unknown.

One of the most popular theories regarding the Valknut is that it may represent the heart of a jotunn, or giant, named Hrungnir. Snorri’s Skáldskaparmál mentions this giant’s heart as a three pointed shape and is famous for its structure.

Another idea is that this represents the powers to bind the mind that Odin possessed. We know from the runestones it was likely affiliated with the god, because it appears often around depictions of him or wolves and ravens, but once again, we cannot be certain.

Whatever it means to you, this symbol was clearly important enough to appear in ancient Germanic and Scandinavian cultures! It has even been theorized to relate to the famous Celtic symbol, the triskele.

    Great pin to add some Norse flair to your personal effects. Pretty thick wood as well, should hold up to use.
