Yes, just like what you see always crush Wile E. Coyote, and in tons of other movies and tv, this is a real anvil. Anvils come in many shapes and sizes based on what they’ll be most used for, but they all tend to share a few key characteristics. The most important of which is a high carbon steel face and a soft steel or iron body. This anvil’s shape is known as the London pattern. It’s probably the most recognizable anvil form, popularized by the media, but it’s mostly used by farriers for making horseshoes.


1. HOT STEEL ONLY. Cold working on the anvil will ruin it. 2. Do not bang the anvil with a hammer. Missing occasionally, as a novice happens, but try to avoid it. It dents the anvil. 3. Only use and store the anvil with the wheels in the up position. Only lower the wheels when you want to move the anvil.


1. Carefully lower the wheels on the anvil, roll it into position and put the wheels back up. 2. Make sure the anvil is level and securely on the ground and the wheels aren't getting in the way 3. Heat up steel. 4. Place steel on desired part of anvil. Usually face, edge, or horn. 5. Bang steel 6. clear forge scale. 7. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to put the anvil back under the welding storage.
