Japanese inspired block anvil

Here’s a new addition to the shop. I took a 5″x5.25″x11″ block of A2, weighing in at 85lbs, some 4×4’s and metal straps and fabricated a new block anvil. I crew some inspiration from Japanese style anvil – the simple truth is that there’s elegance and function in simplicity. You don’t need a horn or a heel to make a good knife.. And as a bonus, there’s over 25sq inches of sweet spot!
