This is the perfect Cast Iron Handle Cover for the modern Viking or Shieldmaiden. Use your cast iron skillet with confidence, as you adorn it with your own rune or bindrune. Bring your pagan nature into your everyday tools with this pot holder for many years to come.
Handsewing vs Machine Sewing: While both options provide a neat stitch with many years of durability, handsewing is more long-lasting and has a cleaner look than machine sewing. I use high quality waxed thread for hand stitching, and the "saddle stitch" I use is a traditional leatherworking stitch that traces back to at least 300AD.
*Note: This pan holder serves to protect your hands from the heat during stovetop use. It should not be left on the pan during oven cooking.*
Celebrate your heathen spirit with useful everyday items, made-to-order with your color specifications and personalized with your choice of runes or bindrune. This piece, along with the other items in my Everyday Heathen Line, are perfect holiday gifts for loved ones.
While I make every effort to match the color swatches and product photos shown, no two pieces will be exactly the same. Leather is a natural material and you can expect variations in color or natural markings which lend to the uniqueness of each piece.
See the last photo in this listing for a reference of the Elder Futhark runic alphabet. These runes were used by the ancient Germanic people (and early Viking Age) for recording information and channeling spiritual energy. A bindrune is a symbol that is made up of multiple runes, generally used as a symbolic or ritual charm.
You can choose up to three runes to personalize your piece, in the form of a Bindrune.
If you do not specify your preferred runes, I will choose for you. You can also simply tell me the intended purpose or story of the piece (protection, health, prosperity, courage, etc) and I will choose the runes best suited to your purpose.
