Iron is produced through a complicated smelting process in which the iron is extracted from its ores. While sometimes just as strong as steel, it normally loses much of its strength when worked. Many blacksmiths work in iron to satisfy the needs of those of little fortune, but the conversion of iron to steel makes for a much stronger and lighter material that can be strengthened through tempering processes.
