As some of you may know, I was able to cast my own anvil that I was unfortunately unable to bring to market, but love to use! I now work at the foundry that makes the Rhino anvils for Incandescent Ironworks. This post, however is not about those either. This post is about some tiny anvils that we make as more of a desktop toy/paperweight. They are 6" from tip of the horn to end of the heel. They weigh about 3 pounds. The one pictured below is made out of a high-chrome white iron, but theoretically we can make it out of a variety of alloys, with or without heat treatment. If there is a big enough order, maybe as little as 100 anvils, we would even customize the lettering (instead of Wear-Tek, it could say whatever else would fit there). The opposite side looks just like the side pictured below (same lettering/logo). I would like to get a batch made of the same alloy as the Rhino anvils and get them heat treated, just for grins. Other than possibly setting rivets on them, these things are just for fun though. So my question to the forum: Do you think these would sell? Like if I were to contact Old World Anvils, or Blacksmiths Depot, or some place like that, would anyone think of buying one with their logo on it? Would the alloy and heat treatment be of concern to you if you wanted to buy one? I am quite interested to hear your thoughts on it. Thanks!
