JARN GRIEPER

Thor's magical iron gauntlets. Jarn Grieper would never win any fashion contests, but that's not why they were created...

When Brokkr and Eitri were hard at work trying to win the bet that would lose a certain Trickster God his big head, a Gadfly constantly stung and bit Brokkr as he worked the bellows. Of course, this annoying little bug was Loki, the normally annoying giant bug, but to his credit Brokkr didn't lose concentration... until he was stung on the eyelid and he stoped bellowing for a split second to wipe it away the blood. But that was all it needed.

Eitri was working on Mjollnir at the time and although the business end was finished, the drop in heat caused the handle to be cast a little on the short side.

It's not a problem for Thor though, as long as he wears Jarn Grieper, his magical iron gloves that allow him to grip the stumpy hammer shaft and wield it with such devastating effect.
