The town's metalsmith runs the forge just to the north of your farm. Saibara is a skilled craftsperson and is trying to teach his grandson, Gray, the forge's ways. Saibara isn't completely clear with his instructions, resulting in Gray's frustration with grandpa's training. Saibara's is trying to teach Gray everything he knows, with his plan for Gray to take over the forge someday.

His spouse passed away long ago, so Saibara's son has tried to convince the master blacksmith to move in with him. Saibara refuses to leave his forge and Mineral Town. At least now his grandson is there to keep an eye on him.
