I am looking at upgrading my shop anvils. I currently have a peter wright and a vulcan. Both are fair anvils and have served well, but I have wanted a Nimba anvil since I first saw them. Then I stumbled on the Rat Hole anvil and now the Holland. I am looking at the 400# versions of whichever and am sore tempted to just get one of each, but they are a good chunk of $ so getting all three, at least at the same time is unlikely. I was saving for an upgrade when I bought my bigger power hammer. 2021 will be the anvil year hopefully. So anyone owning any of these or an anvil i don't know about have any sugestions? I am looking for an upgrade to a big flat face and decent heat treat. I have worked on this vulcan too long and it is kind of soft. Which would you get first?

Hi Jason, I make the Holland Anvil tools. Thank you for putting us in good company with the other American manufacturers you mentioned. Our Holland tools are all made in house, both the patterns and castings.. All of our anvils are H13 tool steel and that is really what sets us apart. We have a lot of tools in Kentucky, at least one 440 owned by my Mennonite knife maker Sam Stoner, he loves it! Sam lives near Scottsville, look him up if you are in the area. If you have any questions contact us PM. Thanks again, cheers!

I've met Sam. He has a horse powered shop. It's amazing. I'm in KY. One day when I can afford another anvil yours will be the one I will buy.
