Ragnar’s (John DeSantis) war hammer from the production of John McTiernan’s 1999 action-adventure 13th Warrior.
Ahmed Ibn Fahdlan (Antonio Banderas) is sent as an ambassador on a diplomatic mission by the sultan, but finds himself embroiled in a quest to banish a mysterious threat from Viking lands.
The hammer was Ragnar's weapon of choice throughout the film and can be clearly seen before the warriors prepare to set out from the Viking settlement to confront the fearsome bearskin wearing Wendols. The prop is made from wood with leather wrapped around the handle to create a grip, and has plaited leather and rope hanging from the base. The head is made from moulded rubber which has painted to resemble metal with raised decoration either side.
There is some minor wear from production use and age, including some scuffing and scratches. The paint is flaking away from the head, especially at the tip and has begun to expose the orange rubber. The piece remains in an otherwise good condition.
Materials: Wood, Rubber, Leather, Man-Made Woven Fibres.
