The Eye of Odin. Druidic Wand. Protection, Unity, Warriorship, and Compassion. FirelessForge Wands. RealWood. RealMagic. RealWands.
Sitting on his throne, Hlidskjalf, with Frigg in the hall of Valhalla, Odin looked out across the whole world. But he wanted to know everything and gain wisdom and knowledge of things hidden from him. This was a desire that drove him to sacrifice himself.
He sacrificed his eye in Mimir’s well and he threw himself on his spear Gungnir in a kind of symbolic, ritual suicide. He then hanged himself in Yggdrasil, the tree of life, for nine days and nine nights in order to gain knowledge of other worlds and be able to understand the runes.
During his sacrificial actions, he saw visions and received secret wisdom. The magical knowledge he gained made him able to cure the sick, calm storms, turn weapons against his attackers, make women fall in love and render dangerous troll women harmless – often just with a look.
Odin was also a shapeshifter, meaning that he could change shape. He could fall into an ecstatic trance and send out his soul, allowing him to adopt the form of another person or an animal. While his body lay in a trance, he could travel as a bird or a four-legged animal, a fish or a snake, through all the worlds and to far-off places.
Odin is often portrayed as a charming man who enjoys drinking mead and wine. But he was accused of “unmanly behavior” when he “beat the drum and practiced prophecy”, something that was associated with women. The fact that he was a seer and a man provoked disgust in some quarters.
This wand has been created around this story. The runes carved into it's handle lend the wielder protection, the strength and defense of a warrior. The long lost eye of Odin carved into the shaft watches out for you when you cannot. As either a talisman of protection. Or a warrior's tool, it will serve both faithfully. If it decides it likes you....

All wands from FirelessForge are hand-carved and crafted from sustainably harvested, locally-grown wood straight from the artist's backyard. Each wand is meticulously carved and painted to bring it to life.
No two wands are exactly the same! Although I will make more than one wand of the same design upon request, each will have individually unique characteristics.
All wands and wand boxes are 100% handmade, no poly-resin wands or machine formed boxes here!

*Please understand that all Fireless Forge wands are made from real wood and while they are sturdy, if they are mishandled they can crack, splinter and/or break. Even though every wand is coated in sealant to keep the color true, it is possible for the paint to crack or peel if left exposed to earthly physical elements such as, but not limited to, sun, rain and/or pets.
