The famous hammer gifted to Thor, God of Thunder, by the dwarves Brokk & Eitri, with its short handle due to Loki's trickery, is probably the most well known Norse symbol of today, as well as one of the most historically important.
Thors hammers, were often worn as amulets and necklaces, both for protection and to display their faith in the Gods. It's also believed that Mjølner, Thor's hammer, also was being used in a number of Norse ceremonies including births, marriages and death, and that its power extended beyond its use as a weapon, to signify the overall well being of ones entire community.
