Kuldar Steeltooth and Brundall Chiselgut
The 2 Metal Traders in Twilight Highlands can only be reached after completing the required quest chain available once you hit level 84. These new vendors trade smelted mining goods for their blacksmithing plans. Kuldar Steeltooth is the Horde vendor and he is found at Dragonmaw Port. Brundall Chiselgut is the alliance vendor and is found at Highbank. These metal traders have a whoppin 34 Blacksmithing Plans available for your Blacksmith.
There is no forge in Dragonmaw Port (unsure about Highbank) so make sure to come prepared with the bars already smelted. If you need a forge for smelting you have to fly to the Krazzworks in the NE corner of Twilight Highlands.

Don't be an idiot like me. Don't go there without your shopping list of required bars. Don't go there and mail the blacksmith the ores to smelt. Ouch! No Forge?!?! Yeah that big forge looking thing isn't even a forge. Don't go there thinking that you can just buy these recipes with gold. Don't be dumb like my pore blacksmith who arrived and left empty handed. LOL. Don't think you can smelt your own Hardened Elementium Bars without training the skill first (requires 500 mining skill.)
