It was raining so I immersed myself in doing blacksmithing. I started the fire in the furnace. I had 1 shortsword made from inferior iron, 1 scimitar, 1 round shield and 1 shoulder pad. I decided to melt them all and refined them into an ingot.
I melted them all together with coal so I could refine them. Then I could see the impurities from the inferior iron coming up to the surface. I took out the melting metal with a fire tong and put it on top of the anvil. I started beating the melting metal with a hammer. I then hardened the shaped metal with cold water. As for the impurities that were floating to the surface of the metal, I scraped them all off with a file.
I appraised the finished metal ingot.
【Pig Iron Ingot】
As of now, I was still using leather armor. Next, I decided to reinforce the vital area and place that was easy to hit with this pig iron. From my shoulder, chest, knee and to my elbow.
I melted the pig iron ingot in the furnace again and shaped it into the shape I had in mind with a hammer and fire tong.
Although the result wasn’t enough to give me the perfect score, I was able to reinforce my armor.
It seemed I had been focusing on doing blacksmithing for a pretty long time. When I came to my senses, the rain had already stopped. The sky was filled with stars. While being careful of my footstep, I set up the ankle snares trap outside of the boundary of the sound alarm.
Suddenly, I wished I could take a hot bath. While I was thinking about what I could do to make it come true, a good idea came to me.
After that, I made gebal poison by boiling gadol and badol poisonous plants together. I dipped the arrowheads with the poison and lined it up near the fire to dry it.
Sweating, I soaked the towel with water from the bucket and wiped my body with it. After that, I changed into the clothes I had just purchased today and lightly washed the clothes I had been wearing with water. I let the clothes dry by placing them near the fire from the stove.
I drank for a little bit, brushed my teeth and went to sleep.
T/N: I guess next up, we’re going to see MC making a bathtub or something.
