Up for auction is a lovely 121 pound carriage makers anvil. Likely forged by Mousehole forge circa 1860’s, this anvil is ready for work! The face has some pitting, but nothing to cry over. A little bit of swayback, but good for straightening pieces. The edges are fair, and useable, and the horn has nice form. The rebound is average, but has a few sweet spots with excellent rebound. The coach makers shelf is a handy addition, and is great for working into hard to reach corners or creases. There is two pritchel holes. Of note, there is a drilled and tapped hole going through the heel into the hardie hole. Please scroll through pics to see different angles.
Dimensions are as follows:
-Overall length: 19.5”
-Face width: 4.25”
-height: 9.25”
This anvil is over 150 years old, and shows signs of use, but it’s ready for another 150 years! This would be a great anvil for anyone getting into blacksmithing, or someone looking for a smaller “portable” anvil.

A broke back #anglosaxon #seax same welding technique as the big one. #wrought #iron and 100cr6 steel. It’s a powerful steel but needs concentration welding the bars. After cleaning the blade I discovered a crack on the edge close to the tip so I grinded more and the profile has been modified in this little seax. #handforged #patternwelding #forgeordie #bladesmithing #damascus

SOLD
Here’s a lovely 298 pound forged French double horn “Pig” anvil. So called due to it’s four individual feet, low squat body and adorable curly tail…horn. Forged in France in 1837.

So what makes up a French anvil? Well first of all, there are many different styles of French anvils. Single horn, double horn, hornless…etc. Some have feet, some have a solid body, some are a completely different shape altogether, there is too many to accurately list. In the case of the “pig” style, it is usually identified by a few trademark characteristics; The (four) individual feet, a very short and stout body, a very wide face, and quite stout and robust horn(s). Compared to a 298 “London pattern” this anvil is likely 2-3” shorter. It also has a face that is likely 2”+ wider as well. Many French “Pigs” have (cursive) writing on the front stating who the maker was as well as the town of manufacture, and the year and usually the weight in kilograms.
This anvil has a drop down to both horns. Rebound is good and the face is clean with minor pitting. It has a side exit hardie hole and a pritchel hole on the square horn. The edges are very clean and useable. The front of it has a lovely chased “mustache” around the feet and a elegant crease forged in above it. Dated 1837, and also stamped 137K for Kilograms. (1KG = 2.2 pounds) There is faint stamping of where a makers named was in cursive, though it’s difficult to read.
This anvil is for sale, $1900 obo. Located in Milwaukee, WI. Local pickup is welcome, or we can arrange shipping on your dime. Interested persons please email us at cergolforge@hotmail.com for additional pics.

Good golly you guys sure didn't make my job of choosing easy! Amazing to see such generosity out there! Thank you all for reaching into your hearts and nominating some truly deserving individuals. There were some real tear jerkers in there. I gotta say I'm overwhelmed at the great response and generosity.
There were more than a few I narrowed in on, but in the end I chose @mossyforge. He not only had an overwhelming amount of nominations-but nearly every single person who nominated him wrote an incredibly personal experience or heartfelt sentiment on his behalf.
He seems seems like a genuinely stellar human being that puts others before himself. I'm sure this anvil will find a good home with him!
Thank you all again for the support!

I helped a good friend restore his favorite kitchen knife handle using some brazilian hardwood he had laying around. I wanted to do a 2 tone with some cherry wood he had but he said save cool stuff like that for the nice ones I build.
Good and helpful people are hard to find these days. It's about time we start helping our neighbors and communities again instead of seeing who we can step over to perceive ourselves as being better than.

The story goes on and lead to the first knife I have made myself in my workshop. With all the experience from one forging course of cause I had to go fancy in the design😣 wasn't the best decision choosing this shape and especially this guard😌 but it came out OK and I'm happy about the learning process. I call it candlelight because of it weird shape. Hope you like it😀 it's made out of 1.2842 and the handle is padoukwood.

The mokume handle is cut to shape and clean. The blade needs more sanding and then a dip in acid to reveal the ladder Damascus. Then attach the handle and sharpen. This is too cool!

It’s too hot during the day to stand in front of my anvil pounding hot steel. I’ve got to wait till later in the evening to attempt any type of forge work. Thankfully it’s only 93 degrees outside right now! It’s basically Fall already.

Here's a Bladesmith type hammer made a while back. I intentionally added some hammer texture to this one. By lightly buffing the raised surfaces and leaving the recesses dark it gives it an antiqued look.

I’ve long been fascinated with the ancient skills of blacksmithing and bladesmithing. The process of taking raw steel and turning into something can be very meditative and is an alchemical process of sorts. Since I don’t have a forge and anvil set up at home yet, I decided to experiment with the style of stock removal to make a knife. This is the first time I’ve done anything like this, and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. Swipe to see how it went from a blank of 01 steel to the finished knife. I used a hacksaw to create the general shape, then a 1x30 belt sander for shaping and sharpening. Handle is maple wood with brass pins. Stay tuned for more to come in the future!!
