Tfs smithy special reviews. in Anvils, Swage Blocks, and Mandrels Posted January 15, 2016 I bought a 200lb TFS Smithy Special several years ago and I love it. I'm only a hobby smith, but this anvil is so much nicer to work than the many old worn out anvils I had used before finally selling off some stuff at a CBA conference and then dropping the bucks for this anvil. There was no shipping as the guys from TFS helped load it into the back of my truck. That was at least 5 years ago and I have never regretted it. My grand kids grand kids will be able to use that anvil.
