Anvils & Vises
Anvils are the centerpiece of the shop. The blacksmiths, bladesmith, metalworker and farriers workbench. Do you want a temporary or a lifetime anvil? Blacksmiths Depot is the place to go when you are searching for where to buy an anvil, as we only sell anvils that are meant for a lifetime. Don't be confused by the name, only the process that is used to make them. Don't you wish you could bake a cake with just the right amount of dough to air? The same wish happens every time a blacksmith anvil is cast. Just the right heat, just the right mix and 100 other things that have to be just right for a casting to come out as solid and dense as a forged blacksmith anvil. This is why we only sell one brand of cast anvils from Poland. The Eastern Europeans have been casting anvils much longer than here in North America. Don't trust your centerpiece to just any company. Pick from the best blacksmith anvils. Ridgid-Peddinghaus anvils, Kanca, and Perun.

Whether you’re upsetting, clamping, bending or any other operation these have the strength to handle it since the load has an extra support in the leg. Just like an anvil must have weight to send the energy into your work so too must a leg vise. The leg vises we sell are made from modern tool steels and have been built for any of your forging tasks. It is best mounted in a location that you can get all the way around it rather than on a bench or attached to a shelf
