The Greenwood Anvil Collection - Title Image with 15 blacksmiths anvils
The anvil collection of Josh Greenwood, professional blacksmith and student of the art of anvil design for 40 years. Photos by Josh Greenwood of Greenwood Ironworks with digital processing by Jock Dempsey. This is one of seven image galleries including several major collections of rare and unique anvils.

The anvils in the Greenowood collection are all either rare unique specimens or of the highest quality. These are all open die forged anvils, a product that has not been made in decades and is unlikely to ever be made again. The large German anvils are the finest tools of their type made in human history.

Five anvils totaling over 2400 pounds to be moved.

"Anvil-itus", Over 2800 pounds (1270 kg) of anvils to be moved. . .

Many of the anvils in this collection are available to purchase. For contact information or to ask questions go to Greenwood Ironworks . com Serious inquiries only.
