I Forge Iron

Anvil ID

Recommended Posts

Vulcans usually have a raised oval trademark on the side with an arm and hammer on it in relief. They often have a weight designation cast in down by the foot. IIRC it's generally the weight of the anvil divided by 10 so for a 100# anvil it would be 10, 200#--20.

Vulcans are a quiet anvil and so good for city and suburban smiths. However they are not as high a quality anvil as as built up anvil or even a Fisher that is a cast iron anvil with a steel face as is the Vulcan and so should sell at a cheaper rate than other anvils that are not cast iron. Note that to most people an anvil is an anvil and they do not know anything about the quality of them and so may want a top tier price for a lower tier anvil.
