The Mjolnir (Thor’s hammer) one of the most iconic and powerful symbolswas certainly a weapon but It also occupied a central role in rituals of consecration and hallowing. The hammer was used in formal ceremonies to bless marriages, births, and funerals as well.

How is the gold color made?
First of all, the stainless steel is cleaned to make sure that the coating will bond well. The steel is then placed in a vacuum chamber with a “target” metal; this will be used to create the coating. A high vacuum level is needed in the coating chamber, then a small amount of argon gas is introduced. A high voltage circuit is used in order for the stainless steel and target to bond or adhere. This allows the argon ions to bombard the target to release atoms of the target metal, which are deposited on the stainless steel substrate as the coating. This PVD process is called sputtering; resulting in the deposition of plasma on the stainless steel surface which gives it its new strength and shine.
The colored surface coatings that can be obtained using PVD include gold (TiN), rose gold (ZrN), bronze (TiAlN), blue (TiAlN), black (TiAlCN), as well as a dark red (ZrN). These PVD colors will not fade over time and have the benefit of being more uniform in appearance and more abrasion-resistant than coloring which is done by the electrochemical processes.
