Blacksmith forge

A Blacksmith Forge and Anvil are interactive objects found in Skyrim that your character can use to craft new weapons and armor. Your smithing perks determine which materials you can use to forge new items.

Forging weapons and armour at a forge or anvil require components, like leather or metal ingots. The components required to create an item appear below it on the right side of the screen. If you have a component, it is displayed in white; if not, it is displayed in grey. Forges can usually be found near shops that sell weapons and armour and can be used at any point in the game.

To use a forge or anvil, walk up to it and press the activate button, E on the PC, X on the PS3 or A on the Xbox.
