Arm and Hammer Anvil




The Arm and Hammer brand logo should not be confused with the Vulcan Arm and Hammer logo.

The wrought Arm and Hammer Anvil is often confused with the cheaper cast Vulcan anvil. It is a American made steel faced wrought iron bodied anvil made by the Columbus Anvil and Forging company of Columbus, OH. They made anvils from 1900 until 1950 and went out of business in 1955.


The fronticepiece and slip cover image for Anvils in America is taken from a composite of photos taken at the forge shop and of company owners.

Note the oval depression in the bottom of the anvil. This is to prevent it from rocking on a high spot of an anvil stand. The splitting at the bottom of the hardy hole is common in wrought iron bodied anvils. The wrought does not like to be punched or drifted with large drifts and would often split.

Physical parameters of the anvil:

  • Over All Length 26"
  • Hardy 1", pritichel 1/2"
  • Horn: ~8"
  • Face length and width 16" x 3-5/8"
  • Weight: 124 pounds
