I Forge Iron

biggest anvil I have seen

Recommended Posts

........was at blacksmith supply store today.  you guys know what they look like so no pic. 

500 pound.  Probably not exact but that is the advertising weight.  $3,500.oo (7.00 /pound? )

Typically chipped corners but quite servicable. No brand name. I was informed that it looks like Trenton.  Which it does.  He collects anvils and said Trenton did not stamp name on all their anvils especially their early ones. I guess they didn't know if folks would like them so didn't want to advertise if they turned out to be junk. just my opinion,  I don't know why anyone would forge a huge anvil and not want folks to know about it.


If he doesn't sell it soon, it will be going to SOFA meet for a positive ID ......and to glote over the $7.00/pound asking price.

You'll get a lot of responses to this thread! I also don't believe that any anvil manufacturer would have sold an anvil without a logo stamped on the side. That being said I do believe that logos weren't stamped deeply and were easily worn off of anvils that were heavily used. One of my larger anvils, a 433lb Arm and Hammer, has nearly all of the logo worn off.  I think that $7/lb is pretty unreasonable but some folks are willing to pay any amount for really big anvils so he might get what he is asking?Arm and Hammer2 438.JPG
