Dwarven Smiths are NPCs that are to be found in the smithies of the Iron Hills. They will trade with the player, and from them you can purchase various pieces of Dwarven equipment alongside other items and sell your belongings for a fine price. However, these fine works shall not be sold to you if you are not already well-regarded amongst the dwarves, and the player must have positive one-hundred alignment with them so as to trade.
These smiths, along with their brethren in the Blue Mountains, are the only smiths capable of reforging mithril weapons and armour in exchange for silver coins, so they are incredibly valuable if you have such items.
As mentioned above, to trade with these NPCs the player must gain positive one-hundred or higher Durin's Folk alignment, and then can trade freely. They will sell primarily Dwarven equipment and Dwarven armour.
Upon trading with a Dwarven Smith, the player earns the achievement "At Durin's Anvil".
