I Forge Iron

New to me Anvil

Recommended Posts

I picked up this anvil a couple days ago. I found it on Craigslist for a reasonable price, at $275 (1.80$ per pound). It was listed as a 130lb but it's more like 150#.

You can see remnants of some markins but can only make out a single didget here or there, and the makers mark is rusted away. I have no idea what it is.

The face was pitted up like the sides of the anvil are, but after a few hours "dressing" it, it's in usable condition. The face has some crown to it, and the horn is off center by 3/16" or so. Also, the horn is the same size as my little Fisher. It's also not as hard as the refaced Fisher that I have, but it still rebounds nicely and has a plesant ring.

Judging by the shape of the feet, It's old. But, I'm no expert.

I forged a couple knives on it already and about 4 squirrel cookers. It works well, not my dream anvil but Its bigger than the 90lb that I was hammering on.
