Anvils from blacksmithparadise.com

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I bought these anvils from Emerald Koch of Blacksmithparadise.com . The big german double horn is mine and the german hornless church window is a gift for a friend of mine that has done a lot for me. They are coming from Austria to be shipped to Chicago Illinois.

I will try to get more pictures but it's kinda a pain to get the pictures to download properly.

You sir have acquired one of my dream items with that double horn. You have excellent taste. 

A gentleman not to far from me has a 350# soderfors which I drool over as well. But I'm still happy with my kohlswa for now.

 

Congratulations. It's a beautiful chunk of steel.

I decided if im going to pay $500 flat rate shipping for 1000 lbs I'm going to make it worth it. ;) so I bought these also.image (6).jpgimage (8).jpgimage (4).jpg

 

Note: I changed the title of the thread so it's easy for people to find when looking for info on buying from Emerald.

I got the call yesterday that my anvils have arrived in Chicago. Hopefully Monday or Tuesday I will go pick them up!!!B)

Also there is no customs duties to pay on antique anvils so the only additional cost was the customs broker and that totaled $241 USD.

Alright Jeremy...

 

Between that power hammer, the double horn, and the swage block....

 

I mean, I can only handle so much jealousy here man!!! :P

 

You have an excellent taste for excellent things.

Thanks guys. I've made a lot of sacrifices to get these things. Like not fixing the rear main seal on my truck so me and the wife only have one vehicle at the moment but I stay home and tinker around anyway so I really don't need my truck up and running. Plus I save on insurance so that helps the pocket book. B) and the fact it only gets 8 mpg so not driving it saves me big time. ;)

What that old joke about having to clean out your forge so you can remount the rear brake drum to the family car to drive to town? :P

I just made it home after a very long day of driving with my anvils!!! This double horn is a brute. It's still wrapped in plastic but I can see both tips poking out.  Tomorrow I will unwrap them and get a better look and post a few pictures!

Personally I prefer a much smaller anvil with a broken horn.
