Hrunné was a young Elk hunter in Southern Sweden over two thousand years ago. Gorsimi was his treasure, he trusted it to help him protect his family. The sword was crafted over a summer with guidance by his father. The hilt was carved in the likeness of the horns of the great Elk, the giver of life, tools, and clothing for his people. Hrunné gifted the sword to his son when age made the lad a better protector for the family. However the sword was laid upon Hrunnés body at burial, many years later, so that he could once more protect his family from beyond.
