One of the Dwarves mentioned in the myths of Scandinavia. He has a brother called Brokk. Both were great craftsman and made three enchanted items. These included Mjollnir the war hammer of the thunder god Thor, Draupnir the ring of power given to Odin and the golden bristled boar Gullinbursti. The brothers entered into a bet with the trickster god Loki. Loki claimed that they could not make a greater more magnificent item than the sons of Ivaldi. When the Dwarves all showed their enchanted items, the gods were more favoured with the items of Brok and Etti. Loki lost the bet but escaped having his head chopped off as previously agreed. Instead he had his lips sewn together with wire.
