Hammer the ingot until it forms a dagger head. Dunk the heated dagger heat in the oil to cool it, and bring it to the crafting table.

How to Build a Polearm

My Little Blacksmith Shop How to Build Polearm

  • 1 Polearm Grip
  • 1-2 Metal Ingots

This is an interestingly diverse weapon. There is no “polearm” head, but you attach other weapon heads to a polearm grip. The image above shows a sword blade as a head. The examples hanging in the shop also show one with a mallet head. You can also use dagger heads if you wanted. Craft any non-large weapon head, and try that as a polearm head.

How to Build a Shield

My Little Blacksmith Shop How to Build Shield

  • 1 Wood Log
  • 5 Metal Ingots

This is the most complicated and time-consuming item in My Little Blacksmith Shop. Begin by taking a wooden log and placing it on the woodcutter outside your shop. If you need more logs, you can cut down trees from the forest with an axe. Place the log on the woodcutter, select what shape shield you want, and select the floor pedal to cut it.

Next, heat five metal ingots of your choice. Place two of them on the anvil. Make sure you select the Shields option on your craft menu with the Z key. Hammer the two ingots until they form a shield frame. If the frame shape doesn’t match the shield type you cut from wood, then place the frame back on the anvil while hot (heat up if you have to) and hammer it again, every hit should cycle it through the various frame shapes. One correct, cool it off in the oil and connect it to the wooden shape on the crafting table.

After that, place a single heated ingot on the anvil, and hammer it. It should first form the shield boss (the circular center bit). Cool that off and connect to the shield. Place another heated ingot on the anvil and hammer, once you have a boss piece, hit it again to change it into a hand brace. Cool the brace and attach to the shield. Repeat this again, this time hammering the piece until it forms the wrist brace. Cool and attach. Once you’ve done all this, it should form a complete shield.

Helpful Information

  • Like with the pickaxe and shield, hammering a metal head on the anvil while still hot will cycle it through alternate designs. With the previous exceptions, these are purely cosmetic.
  • You can break apart a built weapon (or incorrectly built one) by placing the weapon on the anvil and hitting it with the hammer.
  • You can turn a completed weapon head back into ingots by placing them in the smelting furnace.
  • The shield will sometimes get stuck if you place the wood body on the crafting table before the metal frame. Try placing the frame first to prevent this.
  • Shift-clicking on a weapon head while on the anvil will enter a timing mini-game that, when completed well, will increase the weapon’s quality.
  • The My Little Blacksmith Shop Wiki is another excellent source for information, though it’s not complete.
