Bench Anvil Swage

Bench Anvil Swage

Photos from Jeremy Ward.

This is a wonderfully designed and executed bench anvil. Almost every surface is designed to be useful. The foot under the horn is heal shaped and the opposite is squared. The face was machined flat and all the surfaces well finished. The rear of the anvil is a smooth cylindrical shape.

The only problem with this tool is that it is cast iron and the face shows a great deal of wear and pitting as a result. The far side has various inclusions typical of green sand cast items.

The owners keep it on their mantle as a conversation piece and a jewel of a conversation piece it is.

WEIGHT: ~9 pounds (4.1 kg)
SIZE: 4-1/4" x 10-5/8"
1.5" dapping hole.
