"Come test this steel! Quality blades, honest craftsmanship!"
―A Roman blacksmith during the Renaissance.[src]

A blacksmith shop in Rome

A blacksmith is a metalsmith who creates objects from wrought iron or steel by forging the metal. During the Renaissance, skilled blacksmiths began to apply their practical craft towards making art, such that architectural ironwork flourished.

Blacksmiths also made a wide variety of weapons and armor, and capitalizing on this opportunity, the Assassins armed themselves by purchasing blacksmiths' wares.[1] The Templars also used the blacksmiths throughout history to arm themselves and their troops. Cesare Borgia employed at least one skilled blacksmith in his workforce, Auguste Oberlin, who crafted weapons for most of Cesare's army.[2]

In the 5th century BCE, blacksmiths could be found around most settlements in Greece, which the 'Eagle Bearing' misthios, Kassandra, used to upgrade and improve her armor and weaponry.[3]

Most equipment was available from any blacksmith in any city, with the exception being that the blacksmith in Monteriggioni was the only one who sold the Condottiero War Hammer (with the collection of fifty feathers) and the Sword of Altaïr before the Siege of Monteriggioni.[1]


Blacksmiths repaired both broken and partially broken armor. Kassandra could get her armor upgraded at any blacksmith in Greece. The cost to upgrade a piece of armor varied with the quality it was being upgraded to.[3]

Ezio Auditore da Firenze could get all of his equipped armor repaired at once, or as individual pieces. The cost to repair a piece of armor varied with its quality and where on the body it was worn.[1][2]

In the 5th century, the 'Eagle Bearing' misthios, Kassandra, utilized the many blacksmiths around Greece to upgrade, and improve her armor.[3]

During Ezio's travels throughout the various cities of Italy,[2] and during his visit to Constantinople, he bought several pieces of armor, ranging from simple leather armor, to complex, decorated pieces of metal armor.[4]

16th century

At the turn of the century, blacksmiths began selling a wider variety of weapons, including heavy weapons such as axes and claymores.[2]


Under the rule of the Borgia, most merchants had been forced to shut down. As the Assassins under Ezio began to liberate the city, they reopened several shops. In return, the blacksmiths began to sell weapons to the Assassins at a discounted rate, and the blacksmith on Tiber Island sold certain weapons and pieces of armor in exchange for collecting certain items.[2]

  • Blacksmiths seemed to be more brash towards Ezio than the other merchants, blatantly admitting surprise that he was able to afford any of their wares. However, in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, this aspect was toned down; they instead made subtly offensive remarks like "One man's coin is as good as another's" when Ezio bought something from them.
  • When going to a blacksmith in Brotherhood, Ezio had the option to sell trade objects for different amounts of money.
