I found no power a match for my own.” The Warrior’s Stave is known by many names: The Helm of Awe… The Warrior’s Helm… and even the Helm of Terror. In Icelandic, it is referred to as Ægishjálmur or aegishjalmur. solid copper 1.25″ (3.2 cm) diameter 20.4 grams copper 1/8″ thick There is ancient history to the stave, wherein the Fáfnismál, one of the poems in the Poetic Edda, the havoc-wreaking dragon Fafnir attributes much of his apparent invincibility to his use of the Helm of Awe: The Helm of Awe, I wore before the sons of men, In defense of my treasure; Amongst all, I alone was strong, I thought to myself, For I found no power a match for my own. This interpretation is confirmed by a spell called “There is a Simple Helm of Awe Working” in the collection of Icelandic folktales collected by the great Jón Árnason in the nineteenth century. The spell reads: Make a helm of awe in lead, press the lead sign between the eyebrows, and speak the formula: Ægishjálm er ég ber milli brúna mér! I bear the helm of awe between my brows!
