A strong smith says 'When you are ready to start smithing, bring me the rock.'
A strong smith says 'Show it to me so I can check the quality.'
A strong smith says 'When you have everything start with reheating the iron.'
A strong smith says 'When the iron is red hot, take it to the anvil and hammer it into the shape of a long or medium blade.'
A strong smith says 'Reheat the blade and make a shallow indentation along the length of both broad sides of the blade.'
A strong smith says 'Cool off the blade in a barrel of water.'
A strong smith says 'Reheat again and hammer at the edges so they become more narrow.'
A strong smith says 'Finally, cool off again and you can start with attaching the guard and hilt.'
A strong smith says 'Slide the guard and precious hilt over the flat end of the metal hilt and rivet the pommel in place.'
A strong smith says 'Carefully file the heads off the rivets.'
A strong smith says 'Once you have finished your masterpiece I will ask you for a letter of rights for using my forge.'
