Blacksmiths don't just specialize in creating and improving all types of melee and throwing weapons. Instead, a good blacksmith also created both simple and complex tools. Provided that you have the appropriate Talent and recipe and the requisite ingredients, blacksmithing can be used to create Improved weapons, whetstones, lockpicks and even traps. Item creation is based on a fixed Talent Prowess value. No Talent Test is rolled. An Anvil is required to make objects using blacksmithing.
