Elder Futhark Rune Set, with bag.
This beautifully handmade set of Elder Futhark Runes will be a powerful addition to your ritual toolbox. I first cut narrow strips from oak boards, then cut out and shape each rune, after which I burn each of the 24 Elder Futhark Runes into it. They are then sanded smooth, stained, and finished with a beeswax wood conditioning polish. This process is quite time consuming, as each rune is created with great care, and attention to its individual character.
I do make one other style of rune set that is even more finely finished, including carved and inked runes, but this particular set is very finely crafted indeed.
This set of runes comes in a high quality black drawstring bag with an polished antler attachment. The bag has been hand stamped with a shop crafted rubber stamp design based on the raven image on the silver penny of viking king Anlaf Guthfrithsson.
Included with the runes: Drawstring bag, small info sheet with the Elder Futhark printed on it.
The Elder Futhark is the oldest form of the runic alphabets, and is named after the first six runes in the 24 Rune system. Listed below are the runes, with a variety of interpretations of their meaning. My advice when learning the runes is this: read as much as possible about them. Learn the possible meanings of the runes, for there are many possible ways to read them!
