Either Steropês, Brontês or Argês

Steropês (Στεροπης) was one of the three Elder Kyklopes his name means "Lightning-bolt."   Just like the Hekatontries, the Elder Kyklops were tossed into Tartarus by Ouranos because of their appearance. Just as the Hekatontries were good at masonry, the Elder Kyklopes were good blacksmiths. When Zeus, Poseidon and Hades went down to Tartarus they freed the Kylops roo. Thankful, the Kyklopses forged weapons for the gods such during the war against The Titans such as Zeus ' Lightning Bolts , Poseidon's Trident and Hades' Helm of Darkness (also known as the Helm of Terror).
