    Here is a piece I have just completed-- This is solid granite with all the text deeply engraved into the piece. The Knotworks stands proud too and is raised as well. I have colored behind it and into the test so it stands out otherwise you really cant see it that well.

    I am not certain about what type of handle that i want on this one-- I could do my stacked leather and metal one http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZxIBliRSRn0-- but I think that this commands something else.
    I am here for ideas from everyone!! One friend suggested engraved bronze--

    anyway, here are the pics of the head. This is 8.5 x 5.5 x 5 also in size.

    Ok--let hear it!!!

    The weight of it is the primary factor. Also, did they just give you a hole to put the handle through or is there some sort of securing or attach inside it?

    Attaching the handle is not a problem at all-- have that dialed in already. Just want to create a handle that accents this piece of stone.

    Re: Solid Granite Mjolnir-- need suggestions for Handle

    It's hard to judge the color by the pictures, but if the stone has the same hint of green the first few pictures seem to give it, I think it'd look really good with a haft of polished osage orange wood with rings burned in to match the black on the hammerhead. It would be a lot more work, but you could emulate the movie design in stacked orangewood with brass spacers, perhaps with a knot design etched around the spacers that calls back to the designs on the head.

    I would definitely recommend one of the more dense hardwoods, something like teak.

    Man that thing is gorgeous! I love it and can't wait to see it fully completed.

    That is such a thing of beauty, and you've taken care of the mythological aspect that nobody can lift it!
