What Makes a Good Anvil?Depending on your needs, you can choose an anvil that's more suited to farrier or blacksmith work. A farrier anvil will be more portable, usually around 70-100lbs. If shopping for a farrier anvil, you should also consider turning cams, hardy holes, pritchels, and face size to ensure your new anvil is optimal for shoeing and working in the barn with horses.
Blacksmiths generally prefer larger anvils. If you're looking for a blacksmith anvil, you'll need one that’s at least 100lbs, or even larger (over 200lbs) if you expect to perform heavy forge work frequently. More of the mass of the anvil should be in the body directly under the face, rather than in the heel or the horn.
For both types of anvils, you need to choose to the best material for the job. You can find anvils made of drop forged steel, cast steel, and hardened ductile iron. Drop forged anvils are the best for most uses, but they are more expensive.
