All hail the almighty V block!
Blacksmiths are armed with a massive arsenal of tools, here's a remarkably useful and versatile one.
A V block has many uses. To name a few:
-tapering pipe/forging pipe
-isolations
-swaging triangular shaped pieces
-a support tool to hold other tooling -chamfering
-truing pieces back up to square
-a means of support for square pieces to work on the corners
They can be used by themselves, or in conjunction with top tools or spring tools.
Much of the challenge of forging is figuring out a means of supporting your work piece. A V block supports it on two planes, thus containing it. When used under a power hammer, or hand hammer, there is now three points of contact instead of two. This forces material into self, as opposed to spreading out/widening.
V blocks can be a simple 90 degree V, or any angle under the sun for specific means of support. There is also the very handy tapered V, in which making and cleaning up tapered rounds becomes unbelievably simple.
Many people ask how I do some of the work on the corners/shoulders of my hammers-this is how. Not rocket science, just a simple means of support to allow work to be done on the corners.
As time allows I hope to write more posts on simple tooling, tips and tricks.

For sale;
Weighing in at 155 pounds, this one is a beaut! So called a “Sawyers pattern” or “Saw makers pattern”. Though the name may suggest otherwise, saws were not made on these anvils, but rather tensioned and tuned. The intention being to make the blade run true and accommodate for any stress on the blade running at very high RPM’s. Tensioning the blade involves thinning and/or stretching it in very select areas. Specialized hammers were used for this; A heavily offset hammer with a slightly convex round face, a straight/cross pein combo hammer with quite flat peins, and a double diagonal pein hammer-the peins being 45 degrees from the handle.
This one carries a rather rare name stamp on it:  RICHD LLOYD & Co  BIRMINGHAM  BEST  IMPROVED  79  JR

Exceptional quality, and a darn good looking anvil. About as clean as they get. Perfect crisp edges. The face is immaculately clean, and flat. The rebound is off the charts good. The feet match those found on a normal london pattern anvil. The face measures 9” X 5”. Besides the obvious use of tensioning saw blades, these anvils have been very popular amongst blade smiths. The large flat face is perfect for heavy forging of blades, and the radiuses edges good for beveling the edge. These anvils also make excellent anvils for striking and any other heavy work as they are so well supported in the base, though they do lack a hardie hole. Beyond that, the large flat face allows ample real estate for coppersmiths and other non ferrous metal workers.
Interested persons please contact us for pricing and additional pics. Located in Milwaukee, WI. Local pickup is always welcome. We can also arrange shipping on your dime. We can also deliver to Quad State for an additional fee.

Up for sale is a wonderful 319 pound South German double horn anvil. Stamped HH inside of a circle reading NIT NOLOGEN. Forged in Germany likely around 1900-1920.

This anvil has a 4.5" wide face. there is some chipping on the edges, but nothing worth crying over, or that couldn't be lightly sanded down. The face is hard and flat, and the rebound is tremendous. The round horn is of nice form and clean. Overall this anvil has very sleek proportions with a lot of support under it. 
The Germans were (and are) known for their engineering-this piece is certainly a testament to that. The round horn is conical, rather than "swelled" which gives a more true circle in which to form over. The square horn is perfect for hard to reach areas, and getting in-between small points. Furthermore, the horns angle outward from the center of the body, this adds not only much needed mass, but makes forging or striking over the horns quite stable. This also lends support to the hardie hole, and the pritchel-they are located close to the body so as to offer more strength. 
This anvil is ready to be put back into service in your shop today, or be the centerpiece of your collection. It will handle anything you can throw at it. It has survived over 100 years and who knows how many hammer blows.
Dimensions are as follows:
-length 35.25"
-face width 4.5"
-height 13 7/8"

Asking $2200 or best reasonable offer. Interested parties please contact us at cergolforge@hotmail.com for more pics.
Local pickup is alway welcome in Milwaukee, WI. We can also ship on your dime. We can also deliver to Quad State event for a fee. Any questions, please ask. #anvil #blacksmith #toolpornk

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!

Available. Here's a piece I recently finished up. It's a wrought iron plate with some chasing done to it. However, there's a twist.
The wrought iron is actually salvaged from a circa 1830's anvil. The anvil was found in a scrap yard, beat to hell and too far gone to repair. So I thought rather than leave it, might as well make use of the material. It was some of the gnarliest and most difficult iron to forge I've ever worked. Very fragile and temperamental to work. Quite poor quality overall...but...the grain is beyond fantastic when etched.
This particular piece came from the broken heel of the anvil. I carefully consolidated the pieces at a welding heat and slowly worked them down. I wanted to leave the character of the grain intact, so I was careful not to consolidate too much. This required extra care because that meant the entire piece was very prone to splitting, flaking and tearing.
After it was forged into plate I annealed it. Following that I etched it to reveal the deep twisted grain. Then the chasing came, both hot and cold. A quick second etch after that and a light buffing to polish the high spots. I made a simple frame for it and called it finished.
This piece is available for purchase. Interested persons please email us at cergolforge@hotmail.com or text us at (414)-795-3544 for pricing.

Here's a different take on a framing hammer. It has a taller rectangular face that is generously crowned. It's quite forward heavy to help sink bigger nails with ease. The claws are short and sharp. #hammer #blacksmith #toolporn #carpenter #forge #forged #madeinmilwaukee #metalart

Breaking down some 7.25" diameter wrought iron. This chunk weighed 60-65. Working on a 300 Bradley guided helve. Bradleys were always a bit over-built, and this ones no exception. This "300" actually has a 460 ram weight! A huge thanks to Patrick Nowak for his time and use of this great American machine!

Up for sale is a stunning 214 pound “Bavarian” pattern anvil. Carried on it’s brow is some wonderful scalloped border ornamentation, as well as a date; 1841.
As we have gone over before, each region had their own pattern of anvil. Swiss, Polish, Bohemian, Bavarian, North German, South German… the list goes on and on. Each anvil had it’s own distinct style, traits, and sometimes even function.

So, what makes up a Bavarian pattern? The list below is the typical makeup of one. One might call them an extreme and grotesque version of an Austrian pattern. They carry many of the same features, but more severe in every way. -A heavily angled “brow” jutting out from the face
-Extra deep and grotesque “church windows”
-Stepped feet, usually 2 feet, but sometimes 3. The feet will flare out wider side to side. -They can be hornless, or have one round horn. In rare cases, they can have two horns.
This anvil is for sale; interested persons please email us at cergolforge@hotmail.com for pricing. We can ship reasonably, and local pickup is always welcome.

Concentración antitaurina en Tudela anoche, pese a la lluvia de las más bonitas que ha habido, por el homenaje a Forges que compartía nuestra reivindicación en sus viñetas, por la canción de Iñaki Marqués y porque las personas allí presentes pedimos la erradicación de toda violencia, en este caso de la que se ejerce contra animales víctimas inocentes de la fiesta

For sale;

Here's a decorated stake anvil and base recently completed. It's a 1 piece forging. Made from 4140, it's heat treated and tempered. The stake can be removed from the base to be used in a vise as well. The base I made from a 150 year old barn beam, complete with cracks, splits and worn holes.
The decoration on the stake was inspired from extant French stakes. The tree of life motif can be seen under the horn/heel. The cross of Saint Solomon gets the spotlight in the center, above the roped decoration.
Dimensions are as follows:
Length: 9 1/4"
Face width: 1 3/8"
Overall height with stand: 17"
Total weight with stand: 15 1/2 lbs

This piece is for sale. Interested persons please contact us at cergolforge@hotmail.com for pricing. #anvil #toolporn #metalsmith #forged #blacksmith

These were a couple of fun forgings to practice volume calculation. One piece ("integral") claw hammers. They both started roughly as a 1" slice of 3" square 4140. The larger of the two has since had the handle spread wider and profiled to the shape of a normal handle. They will receive exotic hardwood scales for the handles. The next ones will have integral forged bolsters... #powerhammer #blacksmith #toolporn #metalart #forged #blacksmithing #handmade #anvil

Last week I had a wonderful opportunity to participate in something pretty special. My good buddy @blacksmithtools purchased the anvil collection previously belonging to Richard Postman. For those not in the know, Mr.Postman wrote “Anvils in America” (AIA for short-the anvil bible!) as well as “Mousehole forge”. These are two of the most informative and thorough books on anvils out there. Anyone interested in anvils needs to own both of these fantastic resources.
Anyways, many (most) of the anvils in this collection were featured in AIA, which is why this collection was so very special. It was humbling to see all of the anvils featured in the book in person. Wonderful to see all of the stamps and markings first hand, and see all of the details Postman mentions in his books. So, me and @billscherrerforgeworks headed to Michigan and helped Andrew load the anvils to make them ready for their new home in TX.
The following day we were all invited to meet Mr.Postman himself, what an honor that was! I have talked with Dick several times on the phone, but never met him in person. What an experience! He is such a wealth of knowledge, and has such stories to tell! He is also quite the funny guy. I had the opportunity to purchase an anvil that he carved as well. He has been a hero of mine, so owning a piece he made is incredibly memorable and personal. It will be one of the highlights of my little collection. I look forward to visiting him again in the near future.

For those wondering, Andrew is keeping the collection together 100% and will eventually have them on display to view.

Here’s a stake anvil we forged this weekend. This is a one piece forging. Rough starting dimensions were 1.75”X3.5”X5” of 4140. The heaviest work was done under the power hammer, the refinement was done by hand with strikers. After grinding and polishing the face, some decorative elements will be added. Both hot and cold work will be utilized for the embellishment. I will also be turning a wood stand for this to match. I have some lovely black walnut that might be just what the doctor ordered…

SOLD Up for sale is this lovely Yorkshire pattern anvil. Forged in England this “Yorkshire pattern” weighs in at 388 pounds. In most larger countries of manufacture, many different patterns of anvils were made. Patterns for specific trades; farriers, engineers, nail makers, chain makers, sawyers, coach makers, cutlers, file makers…the list goes on. This was one of many. The classic Yorkshire pattern has two “bicks” or horns. Both horns are below the level of the face. The English also made a double horn pattern where the square horn was level with the face, often called a “Portsmouth pattern”. From there, I have seen many varieties of Yorkshire patterns in terms of hardie and pritchel hole location. Some have multiple hardie holes, and sometimes a hardie hole is off to one side, or even exits through the side. Some have multiple pritchel holes, and some have none at all. This one has one hardie hole, with a pritchel hole opposite it.
The face is flat and very clean with only a bit of pitting. The rebound is good. The edges of both sides are very clean and crisp. Both horns have pitting, but nothing to cry over, and nothing that a short time with a flap wheel couldn't remedy. Of note, there is one very small "divot" in the face. It is about a 3/16" diameter circle roughly 1/16" deep. The pritchel hole is plugged-but we have not tried to drill it out. Beyond that, there is little to no wear.
Dimensions are as follows: -Face width: 5 3/4"
-Face length: 15 -Overall length: 38 1/2”
-Height: 14"
-Hardie: 1 1/4”
-Pritchel: 1"

This anvil is for sale. Located in Milwaukee, WI. Local pickup is welcome. We can also arrange shipping via freight on your dime. Interested persons please contact us at cergolforge@hotmail.com for more pictures and information

Here's my take on aSwedish pattern cross pain. Finished this one up a while back. The body has been left rough from the forge, the shoulders have been ground and polished to provide some contrast.

Weighing in at an astounding 823 pounds, this monster is one of the largest anvils I own. I figured some of you anvil geeks will enjoy seeing this.
Forged in Germany circa 1890-1910, this anvil is a testament to the anvil makers of old, showcasing the pinnacle of their craft. To think about having over 800 pounds of wrought iron at a white heat for forge welding is both unfathomable, and downright humbling. This anvil has survived two world wars, and still has hundreds of years of life left to work.
Coffee cup for scale. It has a massive 9.5" wide face! It rests upon the largest swage block I've ever seen...28" square!

I had a lot of folks ask me how I made the one piece claw hammers I posted the other day. Here's a simple breakdown.
1. starting material- 1" slice of 3" square 4140
2. Fuller or isolate a section between head and handle
3. Draw handle down to the plane that was just fullered.
4. Draw out the claw end. At this stage the head could also have shoulders fullered in as well.
5. Fuller the planes 90 degrees to the initial fuller, then draw the handle down to that plane. At this stage the handle section could also be spread wider.
The last step is to cut the claws. Using an extra thin hot chisel is key.
This can be done under a power hammer, a Flypress or hydraulic press, or done by hand with a striker. The techniques and steps are nearly the same. It's not rocket science, just lots of volume to be moved. Happy forging!
