Viking Runestone?

I found a guy on Craigslist selling a Viking sharpening wheel.

It has a bit of age but the stone is still in good shape.

I think it will be just what I need for my pocket knives.

I think I'll jump on it before that guy, Bill Harsey grabs it? 😎

Wondering if anyone with a pick-up might be able to help me move it from Creswell, Oregon to the NOVA area?

He’s an elf...things are just out of perspective a little. It’ll fit in your 1/2-ton just fine.

I like your chair, looks like you can keep an eye on things.

It looks a bit like Ingólfur Arnarson’s chair...

Interestingly, Ingólfur took those carved pillars from his high seat and threw them into the water. He vowed that he would build his farm wherever those pillars came ashore on the island. Where his ship hit the shore is called Ingólfshöfði and he spent his first winter there, but that is not where the pillars were found.

Ingólfur sent two of his Celtic slaves, Vífill and Karli, to search for the pillars. Incredibly, it took them 3 years to find the carved pillars. They located them in a small bay in the south western part of the country. The slaves reported back to Ingólfur that they had found the pillars, but were not impressed with the land where the pillars were located. Ingólfur seemed to not care much about their opinion of the place. The gods had made their decision and Ingólfur moved to that place. He named the area Reykjavík, which literally means steam or smoke bay, because of the large amount of steam rising up from the nearby hot springs.
