Anvil Brand Becomes Major Player In ANvil Business

He will work with us in a consulting capacity to make certain we continue to produce the highest quality anvils made in America.”

The entire anvil line will still be available, including the Mario Journeyman anvil with the square heel that has proven ideal for shoeing competitions.
