Maker of the Doors of Durin

A great craftsman of the Dwarves, who lived and worked at the height of the power of Khazad-dûm. He formed a friendship with Celebrimbor, the master artificer of neighbouring Eregion. Together these two made their most famous achievement for King Durin III, the Doors of Durin that guarded the West-gate of Moria.
