Well you could round them a bit more; but they are fine the way they are.  Tell your friend that "Practical Blacksmithing" published 125 years ago talks about "who would be so stupid as to have sharp edges on their anvil" as they create cold shuts on your work....

When you use the anvil AS IS, what is it you are NOT able to accomplish?  

You sure that a rounded edge will insure that you ciukd accomplish the same task?


Try this before you touch the grinder to the anvil. Get a piece of 1/2 inch plate and round or radius the edge as you plan to round or radius the anvil. Weld a hardie post to the plate and set it on top of the anvil. Did you notice any vastly improved blacksmithing ability due to the rounded or radiuses edges? Please let us know how it worked out for you.
