  1. Geoff, Thank you- that was very helpful and I will be sure to look into that rather than a london anvil. However, as I said on the other forum, I am having trouble convincing my parents of helping me enter this hobby. Hence, I believe that it may be wise to forge everyday objects other than knives at the very beginning (ex. those hooks for holding bananas, fire pokers, etc.) in order to cast a favorable light upon the hobby. This has led me to believe the horn on a "traditional" anvil to be necessary for other tasks. Are their any other shapes which combine the two types? Also, if I were t
  2. Yes, I did. However, I've been struggling to find equipment that isn't absurdly expensive. I am attempting to enter the hobby of knife making, and funds have been extremely limiting to me.

  4. Hey Dennis - I know this was posted over a decade ago - but is there any chance that your anvil is still available?

  5. Hey Shane - Sorry to reopen an older thread, but is this hydraulic forging press still available? I am attempting to get into blade smithing, but my funds are fairly limited - so I've been hoping to find a used press in good condition. If it is, I am very interested in it! Please let me know as to whether it is still available or not.
