A blacksmith can create a very wide variety of iron tools from meteoric iron or smelted iron oxides. These tools will usually have different designs than the analogous mass-manufactured tools on Earth. The blacksmithing craft requires only other small-scale crafts for its equipment and raw materials (brick-making for the furnace and smelting for the iron bar input), thus qualifies as a small-scale craft suitable for a frontier town (small and largely self-sufficient) economy.
