The Steel Crane Smithy was located an hour south of Kyuden Kakita. The Kakita forged there most blades for their family, including the famous Kakita Blades. A staff of monks and shugenja purified the equipment and grounds daily. [1]

Founding Edit

Doji Yasurugi, twin of the first Crane Thunder, was interred and a shrine was built upon his remains. His spirit told his father, Kakita, that an ore vein beneath his tomb had been infused with the purity of his soul. The shrine was removed and construction of the smithy that would become Steel Crane Forge began. [1] The steel made from this ore was very flexible, allowing a Kakita Blade to bend and flex in situations where most blades would not. [2]
