Why do blacksmiths use a post vice rather than a conventional vise?

I have several conventional vices that I could mount on any kind of stand. What would I gain from a post vice?

leg vise is bolted to the table or post... twistin is no prob
leg vise are almost alway made of wrought iron or mild iron ...
so far conventional vises that i've run up on are mostly cast iron ... good for boat anchors or use for hand filing blades
just look at the size of the acme screw on a 4 inch leg and compare it to a conv vise... tells alot
