Baldr was the god of light and beauty. He was married to Nanna and had a son, Forseti. Baldr was immortal, except when he was wounded by weapons made of mistletoe. The god Loki made a spear of mistletoe and he let Baldrs blind brother, Höðr, throw it. Baldr died and thus he gave rise to Ragnarok.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
Please note. After finishing the product yourself, the warranty and return right expire. Celtic WebMerchant is not responsible for the obtained result.
