Iron Tools


 Iron Tools are the standard use of the time. Reasonably easy to produce, economical and of good quality.

Properties


A standard Iron Tool has a Trade value of 10. The 'fine' (Iron Tool*) and 'finer' (Iron Tool*^) versions are processed versions and gain an extra 2 or 4 trade value respectively per output. Standard Iron Tools are a trade product and their trade quantity stacks can be of 100.

All variants of the Iron Tools have a storage weight of 10. Commonly stored in a Barn, they use the Resource Flag 'Tools'.

 

Production


Production of Iron Tools is easily achieved without a furnace at a workshop with Iron. You can not make Iron Tools from the Iron Ore mined or harvested from the surface. From each input, the blacksmith will output 1-2 Copper Tools depending on their education. Only one tool is processed and outputted at the Grindstone at a time.

Iron production - see also: Iron

Using refined Iron to produce Iron Tools. Either requiring 1 Iron + 1 Log or 1 Iron + 1 Timber. The method using a Log has a per cycle input cost of 12. Uneducated will have a loss of 4 with only 1 Iron Tool made, meanwhile; an Educated worker will make a total profit of 4 or 2 per Iron Tool. The method using Timber has a per cycle input cost of 14. Uneducated will have a loss of 6 with only 1 Iron Tool made, meanwhile; an Educated worker will make a total profit of 2 or 1 per Iron Tool. The overall use of Timber is more viable despite this, as 4-5 pieces of timber can come from one log.

 

Durability


Tool Quality - see also: Tools

Iron, though harder than copper is still a relatively soft and malleable metal, this allows the production to happen without a furnace, yet for this reason they will wear out quicker than Steel Tools, though like other tools you can increase their quality at a grindstone (see below).

Grindstone - see also: Grindstone (building)

New iron tools can be further sharpened and prepared by a blacksmith at a grindstone, they become Iron Tool* (RawMaterialIronToolFine.rsc) they are of higher quality and longer life. If they are also processed with the use of Linseed Oil, these tools will benefit from an even higher durability, they become Iron Tool*^ (RawMaterialIronToolFiner.rsc).
