The most popular anvils are normally stocked, and have the weights and prices shown in green. 

No. 58

 Includes side shelf

Much desired useable smooth transition between the main face and round horn.  True original design.

The #58 & #57 anvil have evolved over time to be the most desired anvil design,  and along with the London pattern anvil they are found in use more than any other style.

Typically  the # 58  anvil  used with the round horn to the left (offhand side) as the smith stands by the anvil.  The side shelf and upsetting block are therefore on the far side of the anvil.  Can be used by both right and left handed smiths.

Other sizes and styles can be ordered (25% down payment) with a normal ship time of approximately 90 days for most styles and sizes.  Special orders, have a typical ship time of 6 to 12 months.  Although typically not a problem, special order price can be subject to fluctuation in the Euro/Dollar exchange rate.

Refflinghaus Anvils originate in kilograms and millimeters.  The conversion from the metric to the imperial system and manufacturing variables result in the approximate sizes and weights indicated.  Variations of up to 5% in sizes and weights can be expected, but variations are not typical.

Hardy holes are finish punched by hand, and could be over or under-sized.  They taper slightly, and are relatively smooth inside.   Pritchel holes are drilled.

*Unlike most new cast anvils made today, Refflinghaus Anvil face hardness compares to the best of the older wrought iron anvils that had a forge welded & water hardened face plate of hot rolled high carbon steel, yet without the potential problem of having the plate come loose.

 **Refflinghaus Anvils are cast and made of a proprietary high grade steel known for its toughness and hardening properties.  For good information on casting steel compared to steel forging see:     http://www.sfsa.org/sfsa/pubs/cvf/ecs.html.

For other information on anvils see: "ANVILS" on my "Dick's Shop Tips Page".

 

Below is a picture of a large Ernst Refflinghaus Anvil being heat treated in the same coal forge used since 1876.  Note the use of bars and chains to manipulate the anvil by hand.
