If theres one thing I want added to Hamlet or Don't starve in general its better tools the best tools, and weapons can be gotten on day 3 if you try hard enough.

now if you didn't know in hamlet flint is rare late game, and gold is a luxury for many reasons they're barely renewable, and those sources are tedious or just not worth it in the long run do you want a renewable source of flint you have a couple options either use dung beetles or using gnat mounds. Since gnat mounds spawn gnats which suck there not really worth is so dung beetles is your only option they spawn from dung piles, and create dung balls from them which destroys them in the process which would make them unrenewable, but theres a way to get more roc will ahem.. "Create" them when flying over which is a pain. You can also get flint from shops which happens to be the only renewable source of gold, and its not worth it at all if you want to create a luxury axe for some reason that would cost you 20 oincs to get 1 axe which doesn't sound to bad, but flint would only cost 3 oincs for 4 axes which is the same durability so not worth you cash unless your rich. 

Which is why I propose a forge/anvil 

the forge is a station designed specifically for creating weapons and tools could be a little mini game where the better you do the better the item. 

first you melt alloy into a mold for the tool you want after a while your character will notify you either from an examine or just a notification that its ready then you cool it down and start working on it you will hammer sharpen and create a handle for your tool depending on how well you did during the creation process whatever you made will have better properties such as more durability or damage to more interesting things such as faster swing speeds or speed boosts.
