Miol’nier (3 syl.) [the crusher].
The magic hammer of Thor. It would never fail to hit a Troll; would never miss to hit whatever it was thrown at; would always return to the owner of its own accord; and became so small when not in use that it could be put into Thor’s pocket. (Scandinavian mythology.)   1
