Tobho learned to smith in Qohor. He is one of the few armorers who can work Valyrian steel,[3] and claims to be the only armorer in King's Landing who can add tint to the metals in a suit of armor without using paint.[1] Ser Loras Tyrell and Lord Renly Baratheon are among the nobles who have purchased armor from Tobho.[1]

Tobho's shop, made of timber and plaster, is larger than all the other buildings on the Street of Steel. Its upper stories tower over the street. The double doors have an ebony and weirwood carving of a hunting scene. Two stone knights armored in red suits of armor in the shapes of a griffin and a unicorn guard the entrance.[1]
