Up for sale is one beast of an anvil. Weighing in at a whopping 526 pounds, this anvil was forged in Germany in 1906.
This style of anvil is often referred to as a cutlers anvil, although I like to simply call them a "production anvil". This is an anvil where tooling could be wedged into the one dovetail slot, and one hardie in each of the two hardie holes. This is very advantageous for production work so that tooling does not need to be changed.
This anvil has zero waist at all, it is all compact mass directly under the face. To that end, the 4.75" wide face flares out to a solid 10.5" wide base. Doesn't get much more efficient than that. Stability, and mass.
This would be toolmakers dream, or anyone who does heavy striking and production work. Excellent rebound, clean flat face, and good solid edges. One hardie hole is plugged-I have not tried to unplug it yet.
