Not done yet but this was cut from 4" plate. Horn was roughed with a O/A torch the finished with a 7" zircon flap disc. Feet cut separate and will be severely welded ;)

This is a 80# piece of drop from cutting a hole in a steel plate. No one said an anvil has to have the standard anvil shape.

that is about perfect. 

I like a larger radius for most things but about 1/8" is a great place to start.   The issue here is you have a double radius because of the heavy chamfer. 

I wouldn't be concerned with the edge towards the handle or center of the hammer but more the one that you have been working on. 

Looks really good from where I sit.

Much better, what you don't want is a sharp edge. If you were to take some emery cloth and buff it like a shoe shine guy it'd be perfect. Well as perfect as anything blacksmith. ;)

Fire up and beat something on it!:)
