Valknut | Enamel Pin

  • £10.00
This geometric symbol recreated by Sean Parry of Sacred Knot Tattoo is most strongly connected ancient Scandinavia. Found carved into wood and stone, it’s original meaning and true name is lost to us. The name ‘valknut’ is a Victorian connection to the word. 
The symbol has nine points. This number was extremely reversed by the ancient Norse and shows up in mythology, history and archaeology again and again. Three threes.
Material & Make

Our pins are crafted in solid metal with enamel detailing and a sturdy pin for security of closure and longevity.
