A Juhin-Kenzoku was a vassal family that served a Great Clan as a quartemaster or forging family. They were usually tasked with forging both weapons and armor that a daimyo gave to his followers, as well astasked with keeping track of whatever item they forged, noting its possessors and any name given to the weapon or armor. If an item changed hands, official papers should be sent to the vassal family for them to update their records.

The Juhin-Kenzoku kept a close kinship with one another, because their purpose was very similar and they all took their duty very seriously.
