'Metalsmithy, is it? A fine choice for any self-respecting dwarf!.

'We make the finest weapons in all the world, of that there is no doubt. Go over to the forge and speak with Gestur.

'He will set you on the path to becoming another in a long litany of fine metalsmiths.'


Metalsmiths provide armour and tools to the peoples of Middle-earth. Becoming a metalsmith can be difficult, but the wares that they provide are a necessity throughout the world.
