Bohemian or "Old Berlin" Style Anvil

Small Bohemian (AKA Austrian) Style Anvil.

We have been calling these Austrian Anvils, Richard Postman says they are called "Old Berlin" anvils.

Photos provided by Stefaan Meeus - Belgium.

I'm just back from a small Czech blacksmithing gathering. Great atmosphere, great people, impressive pieces . . . Fueled me up for some time, with ideas and courage and plain gusto.

Part of a show was a giant farrier, who used a small Bohemian style anvil, about a hundred years old, with a recently added side clip (to draw a side lip on one style horse shoe). Wonderful mix of old and new, so I took a few pics.

Seems that modifying anvils is not only common in the U.S. but all around the world. This little anvil has the end of the horn broken off but is in good condition otherwise. As Stefann noted the side clip is an add on, you can see the arc weld beads in the photo.

This is a very small anvil judging by the tools in the photo its probably 25 to 35 kg (~50 to 75 pounds). What I love about these anvils is that you can see how they built up the stepped feet one layer at a time.
