The dwarven blacksmith shop in Little Mahakam, the non-human district of Vizima's Temple Quarter, is run by Malcolm Stein, the blacksmith and his apprentice, the trader. They will serve only people who come recommended, and will not have their weapons be used against non-humans. How can you tell if he will deal with you?
This is one of the only places you can get a lightning rod made. The Order armorer would not know one if he tripped over it and was subsequently struck by lightning. You can also buy and sell goods here:
This should not be confused with the dwarven blacksmith's house located just east of here. Despite the fact that the mouse-over text on the door does say "house" not "shop", narratively, it is the shop.

Trade conditions Edit
- Chapter I
- Chapter II
- Will forge a lightning rod for 50 for The Sentry quest in Chapter II, which is 20 cheaper then his competitor - Order armorer.
- If you side with the Scoia'tael in the Swamp during the Force Recon quest line in Chapter II, he will start dealing to you (again).
- If you side with the Order in the Swamp during the Force Recon quest line in Chapter II, he will stop dealing to you.
- If you complete A Ghost Story and free the half-elf woman from the thugs, he will start dealing to you again. This can be done either in Chapter II or Chapter III.
- Chapter III
- If you clear Vivaldi of suspicion, he will start doing business with you.
- If you complete the quest Six Feet Under in Chapter III, he will stop doing business with you.
- If you complete the quest Echoes of Yesterday in Chapter III, he will start doing business with you.
- If you choose the Scoia'tael path in Gold Rush in Chapter III, he will (presumably) start doing business with you (some users report that he did not start doing business with them). To be safe, complete Six Feet Under and Echoes of Yesterday so that the second one you complete advances the same side as your future choice in Gold Rush, or be forced to use the swordsmith in the Marketplace if you want one of your swords reforged.
- If you choose the Order path in Gold Rush in Chapter III, he will completely stop talking to you. However, his shopkeeper will continue doing business with you (assuming that he has been friendly to you before the Gold Rush).
