Blacksmiths made armory and repairs for the armies. They made and sold weapons and horse shoes. The Blacksmith did anything that involved working iron to a desired shape and hardness. These included swords, horse shoes, armor for solders, keys, locks, shields, daggers, lances, arrow heads, tools, nails, doors, portcullis, chains, instruments, knives, ornaments, decorative objects, and jewelry.
