Mountain Smithy is a location in Majora's Mask.[1] Situated in Mountain Village, the smithy is run by Zubora and Gabora, the local blacksmiths. Here, they charge a fee of 100 Rupees to upgrade and sharpen swords.[2]

When Link first visits the Smithy, Zubora and Gabora are not able to do any forging due to the hearth being frozen over, which is caused by the abnormal winter that has overcome Snowhead.[3] When Link defeats Goht inside the Snowhead Temple, spring returns to the area, unfreezing the hearth and allowing Zubora and Gabora to start working again. Alternatively, the hearth can also be melted by shooting a Fire Arrow at it or by pouring some Hot Spring Water.[4]

With the hearth working again, Link can upgrade the Kokiri Sword to the Razor Sword by paying the fee of 100 Rupees; however, since the process takes a whole day, Link will have to leave his sword with the pair until then.[2] Once Link receives the Razor Sword, he can bring a bottle of Gold Dust to have the sword upgraded for free to its maximum capability: the Gilded Sword.[5] The process of upgrading the Kokiri Sword to the Gilded Sword has to be done in the same three-day cycle since playing the Song of Time will cause the Razor Sword to go back to the Kokiri Sword; moreover, it has to be started on the First Day since Zubora and Gabora do not take any orders on the Final Day.[6]

So, would you like your sword reforged for 100 Rupees?" — Zubora (Majora's Mask)
