This article is about the store and building. For the profession, see Mining#Mining Skill.

Clint's Blacksmith shop provides multiple services primarily related to resources found in the Mines. It chiefly serves as a location for upgrading tools, and breaking open geodes, although he also trades in Coal and ores (copper, iron, & gold). Finally, the building is also Clint's home, and his bedroom is out the back of the shop floor.


The purchase prices of ore and coal increase in Years 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.

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 directly buy any kind of geodes (although it is possible to sell any ores they contain back to him).

Upgrade Tools

Rotten Plant.png  Warning: Spoilers  Rotten Plant 2.png

This page or section contains unmarked spoilers from update 1.6 of Stardew Valley. Players may want to avoid or be cautious toward reading this article/section.

Clint can upgrade the four main tools and the Trash Can in the inventory menu incrementally. That is to say, the previous quality of the tool is required to upgrade it to the next level. It takes 2 days to upgrade a tool. Other Blacksmith services are still available while Clint is upgrading a tool. A notification will pop up on the left side of the screen on the morning a tool upgrade is ready.

Note that even when Blacksmith's shopfront itself is closed on festival days (although the door will not be shut for the Dance of the Moonlight Jellies in the Summer, and the Spirit's Eve festival in the Fall), Clint will still work on tools. If a player drops off a tool the day before a festival, it will be ready the day after the festival as normal. However, if a player drops off a tool 2 days before a festival and the Blacksmith's shop is closed due to the festival, the player will be unable to pick up the tool and must wait an additional day.

All Axe and Pickaxe upgrades reduce the number of hits necessary to remove trees and rocks. In addition, certain metal versions are able to break larger objects of their respective type (logs and stumps; or boulders and meteorites, respectively). 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). The trash can upgrades increase the autosell value of any objects placed into them up to 60%.

Process Geodes

Clint can break open geodes for data-sort-value="25">Gold.png25g. Gems and Minerals can be found within, as well as common resources like Stone, Clay, and Coal.

If the sell price of the item inside the geode is data-sort-value="75">Gold.png75g or less, a "clink" sound will be heard when it is broken open. Otherwise a short melody will be heard 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, artifacts or treasures can be found inside.

  • To avoid missing a day of watering, water crops, then upgrade the Watering Can when the weather report indicates rain the next day. Crops will be watered the day the can is taken to the Blacksmith, the following day by the rain, and the Watering Can can be picked up the day after that. It can also be a good idea to upgrade the watering can near the end of a season if there is nothing in the ground that will bear fruit until then.
  • Regarding coal prices, during year 1, it's cheaper to buy wood from the Carpenter's Shop and use a Charcoal Kiln to make coal than it is to buy coal from the Blacksmith's. Conversely, starting in year 2, the price of wood increases from data-sort-value="10">Gold.png10g to data-sort-value="50">Gold.png50g, so it is cheaper to purchase coal.
  • 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.
  • Although the door to the Blacksmith locks at 4pm, as long as the player is inside the building they can still interact with the counter after 4pm to make purchases, upgrade tools etc., even after Clint walks away from the counter at 5pm.
