The blacksmith shop is adjacent to the Riften marketplace. The resident smith, Balimund, has set up his forge and workshop outside the building under a covered overhang.
Inside, the house is modest. At the back of the dwelling are two bedrooms, one with a safe and some weapons. The cellar has a large number of ingots, other ingredients for crafting and a Strong Box, which will all become available without stealing by solving the quest Stoking the Flames for Balimund. Asbjorn Fire-Tamer can also be found inside.
