Death Metal band ‘Amon Amarth’ fill stadiums across the world with their brand of Viking Metal and their fans have an eye for detail and an insistence on authenticity.

When Amon Amarth decided they needed to create ‘Gungnir’ the massive spear of Odin, to feature in their next video “Odin owns you all’, they approached Rod as a specialist in recreating accurate period forged blades.

Not only did Rod and his team build the spear but Amon Amarth’s film crew with Director Phil Wallis, recorded the whole process from pulling out and double hammering a massive bloom of hearth item to carefully scraping and shaping and mounting the finished spear.

Amon Amarth are currently touring the US and the spear will probably be seen at some venues on the European leg of the tour.
