I passed up an English sawyers anvil about three years ago, and have been kicking myself ever since. It was $2200, plus shipping from the UK, but you don't find good ones often. Well...

Just so happens that I happen across a blacksmith talking about making some pieces for my firepots, and we start talking anvils... he knows a guy, who knows a guy...

It turns out I find an exceptional Fisher sawyers anvil in the perfect size, perfect condition, all markings, 82 lbs. and a 10L x 6.5W x 5.5H. Exactly what I had wanted...

And it was a steal of a price. It's an 1887 anvil with correct Fisher markings, 10.5L x 6.5W x 5.5H, and it weighs 82 lbs.

I can start to do my Tansu metal work now, and engrave it too!

A lucky day for sure...
