Now you guys will know who your competition is for deals on KSL :D

Did either of you attend the ABANA conference that was held in SLC last year?

Built a forge at the end of the year and made a few knives. I am definitely a greenie. I have to say, I don’t think you will have competition from me for an anvil on the KSL site. All of the damaged anvils are overpriced and the guys won’t budge. So I have given up on it as a resource. I will be using a plate for the time being. I missed the ABANA conference unfortunately. I have seen pics from it and wished I would have stumbled upon it before it occurred. I am keeping an eye out for future events and will attend when they are scheduled.

I hear ya DavidF on the anvils on ksl. I was lucky and asked around folks I knew in Wyoming and walked away with one. I can't afford what's on ksl either lol. Send me a pm I might have something to help you out. Do you have any left over kaowool or anything for forge building?

Hey,  so I'm just up the hill from all you Utahns. Evanston, Wyoming. I'm not a member, but I've met a few guys from the Great Basin Blacksmith guild.  They seem like a real good group of guys with aTON of knowledge to share. I highly recommend getting in touch and attending a meeting.
