PLEASE NOTE THIS ANVIL IS FOR PICKUP ONLY AT THARWA VALLEY FORGE. SHIPPING IS NOT AVAILABLE.

Cast steel anvil in 6150 carbon steel that is taller and thinner model than the standard stocky anvils.

  • Anvil face is 460 x 93 mm
  • Cast 6150 steel hardened face to 57 HRC
  • long, stable base at 350 x 197 mm
  • Hardy hole is 25.4 x 25.4 mm (1")
  • Pritchel holes are 10 mm and 15 mm
  • Cutting face on horn side is 90 x 74 mm
  • Upsetting block on far side of anvil is 185 mm long
  • Long, rounded horn thins to 12 mm tip (1/2")
  • Anvil height 241 mm

6150 has a typical chemistry of Carbon 0.50%, Manganese 0.80%, Silicon 0.30%, Chromium 1.00%, Vanadium 0.15%. The main features making 6150 so attractive for anvils is not high HRC but toughness, wearability and the ability to harden deeper than for instance 1050 steel.

Design:

  • Nordic Edge anvil designed Troy Hageman of Nowra knives, based on a classic London Pattern anvil, with rounded lines holes on the short sides of the base for bolting down.
  • The shape is tall and thin providing the double benefit of having more of the weight under the hammer, as well as letting the blacksmith stand closer to the work than a stockier, wider anvil face.
  • The anvil also has an upsetting block on the far side of the anvil, down on the base. This allows for stock being upset to be based lower than the anvil face for more power.

The anvil comes unpainted with the edges undressed.

Dressing the anvil is done by rounding the edges using a flap wheel on an angle grinder, or hand files. And the round horn ground nice and even to remove cast marks and the black paint. This dressing makes the anvil more useful, as forging with the sharp corners tend to pinch the steel and create cracks.
