Hail the Heathen Hammer

Hail the Heathen Hammer

By Anders B. AOR

It were at last year’s G.M, that Blutgeist OR gave a talk and meditation on the hammer and what it means to us that bit deep into me, to the point that I had this overwhelming feeling to make a hammer to be of a high enough standard to represent our faith. Continue reading

The River of Our Life
