I am in the process of buying this 70 pound Soderfors anvil made in 1929. I spotted it in my neighbors yard today and I have been sitting here envying it all day and being depressed because It wasn't mine. So I went over there and offered him $200 for it. He is ok with that price but I haven't paid him yet. It is very well marked and in extremely good condition other than some rust. Their aren't even any chisel marks on the step. #soderfors #swedish #caststeel #anvil #tools #shop #beautifull #blacksmith #madeinsweden #amazingcondition #forge #blacksmithing

    @matt.seader Yeah I figured $200 was a good deal for it. I was right about to offer him $400 then he suggested $200 and I was very happy with that price. He always cuts me super good deals on tools. It belonged to my neighbors friend and somebody gave it to him for free.

    That's interesting I damn near took up smoking because a lady next to my house growing up has a big nice anvil in her flower bed... I offered hundreds and she never budged. You are lucky. I have almost stolen it many times...

    How does this anvil work for you? I am hoping to buy one very similar

    @mdt107 I haven't actually used this one yet. They have a reputation of being a very good anvil, They have amazing rebound. The only downside I've heard is that if it has sharp edges like this one does they can chip a little easier than a forged anvil since the steel is very hard. They ring very loud too, It is a good idea to wrap a chain around the waist or something to reduce the noise. I highly recommend Soderfors anvils. They are one of the best anvils you can get in my opinion.
