GUNGNIR


GUNGNIR odin's magic spear, made by the dwarf sons of Ivaldi. Gungnir never missed its mark. It was a symbol of Odin as the god of war. Odin flung his spear at the vanir gods in the war between the aesir and the vanir. Norse warriors threw their spears at the start of a battle to invoke Odin's protec-tion in war.
