DWARVEN TOOLS, WEAPONS AND IMPLEMENTS

TOOLS - WEAPONS - UTENSILS - MISCELLANEOUS IMPLEMENTS - MYTH/LORE

The adjective ‘dwarven’ might with equal truthfulness be replaced by the phrase “high in quality”, when applied to any tool or weapon of Thergerim manufacture. Indeed, dwarven-made tools hold their edge longer, swords bite deeper – save against Thergerim chain or plate armour! – and rust seems to find it more difficult to take hold on their finishes and patinas. Since dwarven culture, and indeed dwarves themselves, can hardly be separated from their tools or weapons (the famed representative axe being both!) we offer a collation for the scholar’s information. From largest to smallest, or from crudest to most delicate, here are some of the most common implements in everyday dwarven life.
