We all know the hammer is made from uru and was forged in the heart of a star. But what about the leather strap?

Has this ever been addressed?

  • The marvel wiki says that it's enchanted to be unbreakable but is made of common leather. No citation though... – Valorum Nov 8 '17 at 12:32
  • It's called a thong, which is commonly referred to as leather but I couldn't find it being called a leather thong. – Edlothiad Nov 8 '17 at 13:28
  • @Edlothiad Searching for information on Thor's thong has given a lot of interesting information, unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be relevant. – KSmarts Nov 8 '17 at 17:19

The strapping around the handle (and the thong, which seems to be a part of the strapping) are leather. Whether this is mundane cow-hide or something more exotic isn't stated but we do know it has magical enchantments upon it.

In earlier serials, the thong was described as "unbreakable"

Namor begs to differ. The leather thong at the base of the handle has been cut by a magical object on at least one occasion.

    Thor can see becauss of his baby-blue Asgardian eyes. Naturally. Did the writer just have a crush on Thor, or did they think that blue eyes are better for seeing underwater? – Adamant Nov 9 '17 at 1:02
