Before deciding on an anvil we recommend reading our blog post ‘buying a quality anvil’.

Eastern Europe has been producing anvils for a very long time and the Polish Perun anvils are well designed and produced with attention to detail. The 100kg Swiss Style Perun anvil has some unique features which makes it ideally suited for artistic blacksmithing. Part of the hardened face is curved which allows for spreading of steel without damaging the horn and one side of the face allows for acurate bending of thick material to a 90 degree angle or less.
All Perun anvils have heavy, curved bases with completely flat milled bottoms which makes them very stable whilst muffling bothersome sounds during forging. All bases have upsetting blocks. The special shape of the slim horn allows for complex but precise work such as bending material at any angle or making rings with a regular diameter. The curved bottom of the face allows for easy removal of hardy tools.
Perun anvils are made from a special alloy steel (containing Mn, Mo, Si, Cr, Ni) resulting in smooth faces on which work pieces slide easily, reducing fatigue (the faces of steel anvils without alloy additions become rough over time). All anvils are cast in one piece (no welding) and every casting is checked for possible defects such a cracks and cavities before they are heat treated and machined. After hardening, all anvils are checked and re-hardened if required. They are hardest in the middle with hardness decreasing towards the ends and edges to protect them from chipping and breaking over time.
We had the anvils independently tested and the test results show an average inferred hardness of 57HRC on the edges and faces.
