Quenchant Tarantino Posted November 26, 2017 Share Posted November 26, 2017 Bottom line up front: What can you tell me about this anvil? I was recently given an anvil (there IS a God), so I thought I would try to find some info on it online, but I've pretty much struck out so far. It appears to be marked "Village Forge." When I googled that, I did not seem to find anything about anvils, so I figured I'd come here. Other markings are "125 1940 55" I assume that means 125 lbs, made in 1940, 55 kgs (bathroom scale says 128 lbs). It appears the strike face is a separate piece of steel welded on. Judging by the scars on the horn, it appears to have been used a bit, and the minimal scaring on the strike face seems to indicate (to me at least) that it is substantially harder than the horn. Can anyone help me confirm this is not an ASO? Also, what materials/manufacturing process was likely involved in its construction? Finally, where does Village Forge fall on the continuum of quality?
