Thorin took work where he could find it, laboring in the villages of men Can't Post

Am I right in assuming what Thorin is forging at Dale is the Black Arrow? If so, what significance will this have later?

The way I read it is that when Thorin was looking for work he met and was employed by Bard's family as a blacksmith. Here he made the Black Arrow for the very purpose it is used in the story and as such its destiny is later fulfilled - this gives Thorin more involvement in an area of the story that he's otherwise absent.

Thoughts?
