Baldor can tell you some basic knowledge about forging Stalhrim. "Well, first you'll need to obtain some Stalhrim, of course, and then you'll need to work it." If you ask him where to find Stalhrim, he will tell you "You can find some in Raven Rock Mine, as well as that new source of Stalhrim on the map you recovered from the elves. Just be sure to bring an ancient Nord pickaxe with you. It's the only pickaxe that can mine the Stalhrim properly without breaking it." You can continue to ask him how to forge it into something useful. "With skill and patience. It's very much like working ebony. Yes... I'd say if you know how to forge ebony, then you know everything you need to know in order to forge Stalhrim."
Baldor may have some random conversations with his apprentice Morwen:
Baldor: "We're nearly out of coal again."
Morwen: "I could travel to Raven Rock and purchase some more."
Baldor: "True, but I think that Edla would be hurt if you didn't give her the chance to trade for it first."
Baldor: "You know how happy it makes her to play the village peddler."
Morwen: "You speak the truth, Baldor. It makes my heart glad to see her keeping busy after Heifnir's death."
Morwen: "Very well, I'll ask Edla to trade for some coal."
Morwen: "Why have you never taken a wife, Baldor?"
Baldor: "Because I already have a wife, and I wouldn't want to make her jealous."
Morwen: "Oh? And what is her name, this secret wife of yours?"
Baldor: "Her name is forge. Now be silent before she hears you and becomes angry."
Morwen: "It's tradition that the son of the smith takes his father's place, but you have no son. Who will become smith of the Skaal after you."
Baldor: "All-Maker willing, young Nikulas will take an interest. I would be happy to teach him."
Morwen: "Nikulas is restless. He's like an eagle, always seeking to fly somewhere new."
Morwen: "I do not think he has the patience to work the forge."
Baldor: "Well, Deor and Yrsa are still young. In time, I'm sure that they will have many children."
Baldor: "Perhaps one of them will want to learn the ways of iron-shaping."
