Mjalnar

Russ unleashes Mjalnar against the Alpha Legion.

Mjalnar, known to Remembrancers as the Sword of Balenight,[3][4] was a great Frost Blade wielded by the Space Wolves Primarch Leman Russ.[1]

It is said that Mjalnar's teeth were torn from the maw of the Fenrisian Kraken Gormenjarl.[1] The weapon is also said to be ancient, dating back to the Age of Strife.[3] Mjalnar replaced Krakenmaw, the Frost Blade Russ had lost at the hands of Angron during the Night of the Wolf.[2]

Trivia

Mjalnar is likely a derivative of Mjolnir, the name of Thor's hammer from Norse mythology.
