TFS anvils

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone out there has one of the TFS smithy special anvils. I've been looking at them more as they seem to have a much wider face than others I have seen. I actually prefer a wider face to a narrower one even though someothers prefer the later. I have noticed as I work on my 230lbs PW anvil that I can see that the double horn of these TFS anvils and that extra width would be a much more convenient surface to work on. They seem to be very substantial in the right places, I just have never came across one to check it out in person.

Any thoughts on this would be appreciated

Thanks, Scott

Hello Scott. I am not familiar with the "smithy special" anvil. I used and sold TFS anvils for a number of years. TFS (Texas Farrier Supply) makes both London pattern and double horn anvils in a variety of sizes. I was quite happy with them and I quit being a dealer due to business conditions on my end. I have one and could refer you to several owners around the northwest who use them. Daryl Nelson bought several that he uses in his school in Eatonville, WA. I feel they are a good anvil and at the time, were reasonably priced. I have been out of the retail business for several years and I don't know how prices are now.

Thank you for the response. I did talk with owner of the Blacksmith depot the other day in detail about these anvils he sells.I very nice gentleman, he said they used a 300lbs one for years in their shop and they sell a ton of them every year and have not had any troubles with them.
I may take you up on the referals to other shops that own these, thank you. I'm still kicking the tires on a few brands right now.
Thanks again for the imput....Scott

I live about an hour away from Bsmth's Depot and can verify they have used the TFS for their main forging anvils. They actually have two or three in use there, and one Peddinghaus. The anvils had certainly been used, and the edges were holding up fine. No apparent distortion of the face that I remember either.
