Grizzly anvil

Recommended Posts

Strongly suggest a skeptical reading of the description, they state that it is CAST IRON.  That means it is junk, not very useful for real blacksmithing, a boat anchor, ASO (anvil shaped object).  Cast iron is often softer than HOT steel.  


Cast steel is a different critter altogether, there are many reputable manufacturers past and present that have produced great cast steel anvils.  A good modern cast steel anvil will start at around $1000 USD +/-.  Google TFS, JHM, Nimba, Fontanini, Old World, Rhino anvils.  Missed a few I'm sure.  


$400 to $500 should get you a very nice antique anvil off of ebay as soon as you click the buy now button, inc. shipping.  The same price plus some searching around plus some tenacity in your greater area will net an even better/larger anvil than what you will find on ebay.
