While blacksmiths made many different useful items, in fiction you will generally see them specializing in weapons (especially swords), armor, fetters and chains (usually these smiths are depicted less favorably than other metalworkers) and horseshoes (a specialist in the last is often called a "farrier.") In actual history, bladesmithing and armor making were specialized professions that often had their own guilds, and the process involved a whole workshop of journeymen and apprentices rather than a lone smith at the anvil. The tools and expertise required to make arms or armor were also carefully guarded and not available to the average blacksmith or farrier, who would be wasting his time making nails or horseshoes if he could instead be making blades or helmets for higher profits. In much fantasy, however, an "ordinary" blacksmith may be able to produce weapons of quality well above what he would realistically be capable of.
