The face of the anvil is heat treated and hardened and will give good service for its intended use, which is fitting horseshoes, blacksmithing or knifemaking hot or cold. Anvils will work harden over time. Striking the face with a hammer or doing the ball bearing test will wreck any anvil due to the ball bearing being harder than the face of the anvil. One should always have a mild steel between the anvil face and hammer. Centaur Forge is not responsible for subjecting your anvil to the ball bearing test or any type of mistreatment and will ultimately void its warranty.
Anvils greater than 149lbs will be shipped by commercial truck at customer's cost.
Blacksmith and Farrier Anvils
As a farrier or blacksmith, buying an anvil is a big decision. It's a significant investment, and since it should last forever, you want to get it right. To make things more complicated, the considerations for an anvil are different for a farrier than a blacksmith.
