    Ok to iterate a little bit on this solution I have found that even though the description says "Enhance" (which is getting a weapon from level 0-10 then 10-20 etc. you actually have to smelt the weapon. I was stuck on this for awhile because even though the name says Professional Smelter the description says enhancement (Like DragonballXenoverse's Collect all Ultimate/Super Attacks because Collect all Ultimate Attacks was to get all the super attacks and vice versa). So in short you need to successfully smelt any weapon 100 times. Now each weapon can only be smelted 10 times before it reaches the level cap so I suggest keeping low grade weapons to focus on this achievement for while choosing one specific weapon while going for the "Reach level 100 on any weapon" achievement. The higher you smelt it the greater chance it is to fail and you lose that weapon forever so only smelt if you know for sure it will be successful (about 90%+ is a good indication 9 times out of 10 if it's 90% or more it will work...if it doesn't that's ridiculously bad luck). So I suggest using the first item you have to craft, the Oninodachi as it only costs 900Ryou and the only item you need to grind for this is Daruma's Pipe which is a drop from the boss in the dungeon right behind Kiichihougen and I believe you get it no matter what, I've beaten him 3 times and have gotten the pipe each time. I suggest to use this weapon as it will also work towards crafting 100 weapons achievement. If you have any tips let me know and I'll edit this solution and give credit to you or whoever deserves the credit.

    SakoriNah, we figured it!

    My friend had favourited all the weapons he was planning on smelting. As the game had nothing to smelt, he never unlocked the option.

    Crims0nScorpionyou need to give Yoshitsune gifts to increase her affection level I have her at level 5 and she has smelting...if you have her affection level at a high level and she still doesn't have it that's a glitch because she should have it and making weapons favorites doesn't make smelting easier

    Despite the description, the title is accurate. You must smelt 100 weapons, not enhance.

    In order to smelt, you need to enhance a weapon to a multiple of 10, plus have a second copy of the weapon. Yoshitsune's Grinding skill affects enhancement and smelting, giving more XP per weapon used as enhancing material and increasing the base success rate. Currently, Grinding can reach level 6 when Yoshitsune has an overall level of 20, and I would recommend reaching said level. Any numbers I give from here assume that you're there.

    The best weapons to use are common weapons found in early dungeons in Onigashima. Basic level 1 gear is Sukedachi Sword, Nora Twin Blades, Stone Battleaxe, Cedar Spear, Bamboo Bow, Pine Staff, and Manjusri Talisman. This will be significantly cheapest to smelt. Note that there are uncommon variants that you can get as well, Flame Sukedachis and Manjusris of Flame, for instance, that will cost significantly more.

    You will also need rare weapons with gold icons. These provide the most XP, and you will need four gold weapons to max out a weapon to +10. There are three options here. The first two, Kikuichimonjis and Kikusenkakus, are found in the same early weapon drops. The third option is Oninodachis, which you'll likely end up crafting several hundred anyway.

    While the ingredients can be found in various areas around Onigashima, the big grind here will be Onigashima Training Grounds on Hell. This gives both the Sinister Bones needed for crafting the Oninodachi as well as increased weapon drops. The second chest in the training grounds always, or close to always, has a weapon inside, sometimes multiple weapons.

    So you've got a good stash of common weapons as well as gold weapons. Time to smelt! The best way to do this is to constantly smelt to +10 rather than smelting the same weapon repeatedly. To conserve supplies, use your previously smelted weapon as materials. At level 20, the base smelt success rate is 90%, and if you want, you can opt to pay to reach the maximum 95%. The total will be... 237 ryou. Uncommon weapons start around 6k and gold weapons around 10k, so again, you want to use these as enhancing materials instead.
