That looks really nice, but I want the anvil. There is no way I could afford the anvil or the shipping on it (let alone both combined), and I am guessing you don't plan to part with it, but my little 125 pound anvil is now crying in the corner out of shame.

That anvil of mine is old and battered, Greyson. You deserve something better.

125 lbs is what I'd been working with for the first few years of my business, and it's enough for lost work - make sure to secure it to a heavy, heavy stand.

That's very nice. I see some differences from mine, very nice:
1. work on bolster, matches tang cap
2. elm scales look very nice grain.

If I didn't have the one I would want the other!
