This article is about the store and building. For the profession, see Blacksmith (profession).

The Blacksmith serves as a location for purchasing coal and ores (copper, iron, & gold), upgrading tools, and breaking open geodes. It also is the home of blacksmith Clint.


The purchase prices of ore and coal increase in year 2+. The player will receive a letter in the mail on Spring 1 of year 2 saying "Notice: The price of raw materials at Robin's shop and Clint's shop has increased." The gold obtained by selling items to Clint (or through the shipping bin) does not increase.

Item Name Description Year 1
Year 2+
Copper Ore.png
Copper Ore A common ore that can be smelted into bars. Gold.png75g Gold.png150g
Iron Ore.png
Iron Ore A fairly common ore that can be smelted into bars. Gold.png150g Gold.png250g
Coal A combustible rock that is useful for crafting and smelting. Gold.png150g Gold.png250g
Gold Ore.png
Gold Ore A precious ore that can be smelted into bars. Gold.png400g Gold.png750g


Similar to how it is possible to sell crops directly to Pierre, it is also possible to sell gems, minerals, ore, and bars directly to Clint. Note that Clint will not buy any kind of geodes.

Upgrade Tools

Clint can upgrade your tools incrementally. The Pickaxe, Axe, Hoe, Trash Can in the inventory menu, and Watering Can can all be upgraded 4 times. It takes 2 days to upgrade a tool. While Clint is upgrading a tool, Blacksmith services are unavailable.

The Blacksmith is closed on festival days, except for the Dance of the Moonlight Jellies in the Summer, and the Spirit's Eve festival in the Fall. If you drop a tool off the day before a festival it will be ready the day after the festival.

A notification will pop up on the left side of the screen on the morning a tool upgrade is ready.

All axe and pickaxe upgrades reduce the number of hits necessary to remove trees and rocks. In addition:

  • The copper axe allows you to break the large stumps on your farm. It reduces the hits needed to chop down trees.
  • The steel axe allows you to break the logs on your farm.
  • The steel pickaxe allows you to break the large rocks on your farm.
  • The gold pickaxe allows you to break any meteorites that land on your farm.
  • Upgraded versions of the watering can and hoe allow the player to water and till multiple squares of land in a single use (using click-and-hold).

Process Geodes

Warning: Spoilers

This page or section contains unmarked spoilers from update 1.5 of Stardew Valley. Mobile players may want to avoid or be cautious toward reading this article.

You can pay Clint to break open geodes for you. You'll find Gems and Minerals within, as well as common resources like Stone, Clay, and Coal.

If the sell price of the item inside the geode is Gold.png75g or less, you will hear a "clink" sound when it is broken open. Otherwise, you will hear a short melody, and the item will sparkle.

Artifact Troves can be purchased from the Desert Trader for 5 Omni Geodes. Clint will break these open like a geode, but instead of minerals you'll find artifacts or treasures inside.

  • During year 1, it's cheaper to buy wood from the Carpenter's Shop and use a Charcoal Kiln to make your own coal than it is to buy coal from the Blacksmith's. Starting in year 2, the price of wood increases from Gold.png10g to Gold.png50g, so it is cheaper to purchase coal.
  • In order to avoid missing a day of watering, water your crops then start the upgrade to your Watering Can when the weather report indicates rain the next day. Your plants will be watered that day by yourself, the following day by the rain, and you can pick up the can the day after that. You can also upgrade your watering can near the end of a season, if you know you have nothing in the ground that will bear fruit.
  • At Mining Skill 7, it is cheaper to purchase Iron Ore, smelt Iron Bars, and use the Transmute (Au) recipe to create Gold Bars than it is to purchase Gold Ore and smelt it into Gold Bars. This also cuts the smelting time from 5h to 2h per Furnace. This saves you Gold.png350g per Gold Bar in the first year and Gold.png1,000g per Gold Bar in year 2+.

Users with access to their saved game files may find the "Stardew Predictor" utility helpful for predicting which items will be produced from breaking open geodes. The utility is located at:


Although the door to the Blacksmith locks at 4pm, as long as you are inside the building you can still interact with the counter after 4pm to make purchases, upgrade tools etc., even after Clint walks away from the counter at 5pm.
