From the picture it looks forged but what can you tell from a picture. I'm sure that we'll soon find out how good an anvil it is once he gets it on his rig and puts it to work. It might well turn out to be one of the best anvil around. Good shoeing with your new anvil! Merry Christmas too. Give us a report on the anvil, OK?
we will find out after the holidays. if i like it will be handing my 60lb emerson down to my aprentice.
horn looks like it could use some polishing but thats just me.

I am Murat from Kanca Hand Tools and I work in the export dept. I found this forum a few months ago but somehow I forgot to answer about the threads. But now please let me know whatever you need to know about Kanca anvils.. But as a general instruction about Kanca and the questions about if the anvil is really forged or not;
Kanca (www.kanca.com.tr) is a forging company. This is basically what we do. The most of our turnover comes from the automotive industry. We supply forged parts to companies like Volkswagen, Ford, Renault, Audi, Porsche, Mercedes, Fiat, Bosch, Bentley, ... pretty much all of the companies in the auto industry.
And also we are a syupplier for forged hand tools like drop-forged bench vices, drop-forged anvils, hammers, leg vices, metal shears, etc.. And we are the most selling forged bench vice manufacturer in Europe.
And about the anvils; yes they are drop forged. Made of C45 steel and the surface is induction hardened. As far as I know it is one of the 2 forged anvils in the world with the Peddinghaus anvils. It is the same German pattern.
Currently we do not have a distributor in US yet (hopefully soon) but you can order them from Old World Anvils or order from our customers in Europe like Angele (www.angele.de) .
Please do not hesitate to ask about any info or documents about them. Maybe I could record a video of the anvils getting forged in the plant later.
You can get in touch through the forum or directly from [email protected]

I have a membership here but I had no posts, was just reading. Luckily noticed this topic today. :-) I am an administrator of the Turkish bladesmithing forum "bicaksanati". We are the only active bladesmithing forum of Turkey.
I purchased this Kanca anvil about a year ago. This is the lightest one of their product range. I don't use it a lot as I am working on my propane forge yet but I hope this will change.

That is a very nice looking anvil. Welcome aboard.

I've been looking around the net for new anvil around 77 pounds and keep coming across these kanca anvils... has anyone put one through its paces. I'd like to know if it stands up to serious use?
Otherwise can anyone recommend any other anvils around this weight? I must say that the kanca is attractive due to the price.
