  1. Hey all. I finally got my hands on an anvil. Now need help to identify it. I don't believe it to be cast iron because the face rebound is spectacular using the ball bearing test (about 90%). And there's from what I understand "handling holes" on the ends under the horn and heal which seems to be from forging it. I will wire wheel it when it gets in my possession. Anyone know from the shape or style who made it? As a side note.. when tapping the horn it doesn't have a great ring. Overall a quiet anvil WITH awesome rebound. Thinking a Fisher? It weighs in at 128 lbs but has 130 stamped into it. No other markings are visible at this time
  2. Good Afternoon All, I have been looking for an anvil for a few months and finally talked to the right person. He had one sitting in his yard and it has been there for quite a few winters. He told me to come and take it away, as it was now too heavy for him to move. I went and picked it up last Saturday. The total length is 32.5". It's height is 12 3/4". I have not weighed it, but I would estimate 200lbs.There are no markings left on the exterior. I think they have all rusted away. It does have a great ringing sound when I tested it with a hammer and pretty good bounce on the face. I checked old pictures to try and find something that looked similar but nothing quite matched. Any comments would be appreciated. Any idea what brand it could be? Forged or cast? I plan to use it, and would like any suggestions as to what I should do to clean it up. Thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge...

    Slavic anvil

    Old slavic anvil. Origin: Dnipropetrovsk region, Ukraine. Weight: 56 kg (124 lb).
  4. I have a old anvil that my goal of the week is to identify i took detailed photos to post and know the anvil is around 200 years old at least. i can make out some writing including England, and patent also hole is repeated multiple times the numbers 0 3 5 are on it which i assume to be weight measured in hundredths weight because it was made in england. but weirdest of all there is a picture of some type of animal on the side. Link to photos Any information is very appreciated Tim
