When most of us think of the locksmith it will conjure images of a man with gigantic key ring full of keys trying to open a heavy old door leading to hidden or forgotten treasures. Being a locksmith, like being a blacksmith or carpenter, is a traditional labour job that has a long history. In fact the history of the locksmith is closely linked to that of the blacksmith and can be traced back to long before the middle ages with early locks consisting of a wooden wedge skewered between a door and its frame existing in biblical times. Like many innovations however, the earliest known lock and key system was found in Ancient Egypt and consisted of two crossbars mountain on two separate surfaces that were locked into place by small movable pins and utilized a key hole to disable. By inserting the key tiny pins would bee pushed out of the way back inside the crossbars to allow them to be moved, which is largely how locks today work.

It was not really until the Middle Ages however that locks requiring keys caught on. Initially forging locks and keys was the job of the blacksmith who would shape the metal in much the same way they would forge a horseshoe or weapon. As crime rates increased this increased the need for locks and for more complex locking mechanisms (though at this time only the keys were metal and the locks themselves were wooden meaning they fell under the jurisdiction of the carpenter). This huge demand created an industry, leading to the rise of locksmith guilds around the 14th century which eventually overtook the trade and lay down regulations regarding pricing, design and quality. In order to rise through the ranks and become a master locksmith, an individual had to impress the authorities with their innovations which would then be put on display in the guild hall.
