In Norse mythology, Mjölnir ( /ˈmjɒlnɪər/ or /ˈmjɒlnər/myol-n(ee)r; also Mjǫlnir, Mjollnir, or Mjölner) is the hammer of Thor, a major god associated with thunder in Norse mythology. Distinctively shaped, Mjölnir is depicted in Norse mythology as one of the most fearsome weapons, capable of leveling mountains. Though generally recognized and depicted as a hammer, Mjölnir is sometimes referred to as an axe or club. In the 13th century Prose Edda, Snorri Sturluson relates that the SvartálfarSindri and Brokkr made Mjöllnir at the command of Loki.
