Reproduction of Otto Gahr Thor's Hammer

It is not often that I publish reviews of products on this blog but the following item will be of interest to all those Germanic heathens with an interest in the Third Reich.

I have recently added to my links section a very worthy website that deals with the sale of  völkisch merchandise; jewellery, books, CDs, DVDs, clothing, etc designed to appeal no doubt to the majority of my readers so they are deserving of support.

From Weltnetzladen I purchased and received in just a few days a stainless steel reproduction of what is obviously an Otto Gahr Thor's Hammer for a very reasonable price and the delivery is suprisingly quick. Unfortunately I appear to have purchased the last or only copy of this hammer in this metal. However bronze and silver versions are available on the site. describe this Hammer as 

"DESCRIPTION: This is the Gahr version of the Hammer of the Nordic God, Thor. They considered it a Werkverzeichnis NR 16 and they first introduced it in 1934 and they listed it as available in silver. All of this information is available in the book Otto und Karolina Gahr, Die Silberschmiede der NSDAP und der page 74. However, this is only one of the Thor hammers produced by Gahr. The hammer harks back to the early Germanic times and was resurrected as an Aryan symbol by the Deutsches -Ahnenerbe-Stiftung. The heritage foundation caused many ancient Germanic jewelry pieces to be re-created to instill a sense of Pagan pride in the members, but also to give academic interest in the Nordic past to all Germans. This item is in extremely fine Gahr detail with a wide passage hole to receive a chain or thong. It measures about 1 ½ inches tall and is an important relic."

The fact that this version is a Gahr design in my opinion adds to the sanctity of the Hammer. It also incorporates traditional elements to be found on other historic Hammers.On the back of the Hammer there is a maker's mark that at first appeared to be "V1" but now I am of the opinion may be a mediaeval German/Dutch Rune-Ul:

Phoenetic value-ue

Exoteric interpretation of name-Empowerment, healing.
Esoteric interpretation of name-Sacred to the Frisian god Waldh, similar to Ullr the Norse god of wintertime, skiing and archery. The solistical element of Ul makes this rune a rune of turning points. It can be used to turn around a situation to the advantage of the individual.
Male polarity and the element of air.

Otto Gahr you may recall was the silversmith who not only manufactured the Totenkopf SS rings but also the myseterious Chiemsee Cauldron.

I own and wear a silver original. Finest hammer I've ever seen.

I recently bought a Thor hammer that has the name GAHR on the reverse as well as what looks like an SS. It is .800

Hello Patrick. Sounds like you have a real find there. Not only are the Gahr Hammers and other items historical they have a religious sanctity. They are if you will, Aryan relics. Look after it and pass it onto your kin-providing that they will do the same.

Wotans Krieger said...

James, is it a Gahr Hammer that you own?

Patrick Verwey said...

Does anyone have an idea how much my Gahr hammer is worth?

Wotans Krieger said...

In the eyes of many of my readers and myself it is PRICELESS. Bequeath it to a worthy person when you die but otherwise do not part with it!

I have decided not to sell it as my son has expressed interest in having it when I pass on. I'm still trying to find more info online but so far have hit a wall.
