"Magic wand." A particular kind of magic wand found in the eddic poems Hárbarðsljóð and Skírnismál. In the first poem, Odin boasts to Thor how he took a gambantein from the jötunn Hlébarð and then stole his wits away. In the second poem, Skírnir threatens to use his gambantein on Gerðr if she does not consent to meet with Freyr.
