Blacksmith

From Gensopedia

Blacksmiths (鍛冶屋, Kajiya) are a recurring gameplay mechanic in the Suikoden series. They are the primary means of weapon upgrades throughout the series.

Information

Blacksmiths, for a fee, will sharpen the weapons of your party members, increasing their attack prowess. Each blacksmith has a certain limit to how much they can improve a level, necessitating either a visit for a better blacksmith or giving the blacksmith a hammer which allows them to raise their limit.

In the first Suikoden, there were five recruitable blacksmiths each with their own limit; Maas (5), Meese (9), Mose (12), Moose (15) and Mace (16).
