This is the Mjolnir. It is a hammer that will always return when thrown. It says on the side, 'Whosover holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of...THOR'. The Prose Edda says that 'Thor, would be able to strike as firmly as he wanted, what ever his aim, and the hammer would never fail, and if he threw it at something, it would never miss and never fly so far from his hand that it would not find it's way back, and when he wanted, it would be so small that is could be carried inside his tunic.'
