Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor heat treatment I received my 275# anvil in September of 2018. Already, I have marring and denting of the surface, and of one edge, which indicates to me a soft anvil. I know people who have owned the same model of anvil for many many years without issue, so it is possible that I received and anvil from a bad batch. I know that the issue lies with this anvil, because I have not had these issues with antique anvils that were made several decades ago. Having poor quality control on an item this expensive is very dissatisfying. An anvil that is so new should NOT be showing such wear and tear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hard face good rebound, needs a good dressing out of the crate its a hunk of steel to forge on, its face is hard with good rebound, fit and finish is okay. As far as i can tell i have not found any dead spots, there are little flat ridges running down the horn of the anvil and the factory dressing on the edges is a bit uneven. The tip on the horn has a hump/downturn to it. The hardy hole is rough on the inside with sharp protrusions that like to catch on full 1" hardy posts (preventing it from sitting all the way to the bottom of the hole and holding onto the hardy tool on the way out), hole is not broached through. i'd have liked more attention paid to the weld/grind on the anvil body - most of these are merely cosmetic issues. i contacted the warranty dept and await their judgement before i go ahead and dress the horn and take a die grinder to the hardy. i don't think i should have to dress fit and finish on a new $1300 anvil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best there is. This is authentic. Entirely forged in the Peddinghaus factory in Germany, not just a "Peddinghaus style" anvil. Make no mistake, this is the best anvil made. Rebound is 90%+ with a 1 and 1/2" ball bearing, rings like a church bell. Adam with tech support was the best. Replied to all my emails and returned all my calls. Answered all my questions and if he didn't know the answer, he found out and got back to me. Thanks Adam! If you can find a better anvil, buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST Anvil made!!! I have read a few reviews about the black finish on this Anvil, etc. All I can say is, you ordered an Anvil to shape and form hot metal after pounding it with a hammer. Who cares what the finish is like? The finish on mine was fine, but I don't understand some folks. The rebound on this is above 90%. I am a thorough person, I research all tool purchases for months before buying. It was no different with this anvil. In all of my research, I kept coming back to the Ridgid Peddinghaus. When other Anvil makers describe their Anvil as having similarities to the Ridgid Peddinghaus, that tells me something. When I talk to blacksmiths who actually work on anvils, and they tell me that if they had money they would buy the Cadillac, Ridgid-Peddinghaus, that tells me something. When I purchase a Ridgid-Peddinghaus and after weeks of use have not one inkling of regret or concern, that tells me the rest of the story. This is the best anvil you can buy. Quit looking in antique stores, quit looking at estate sales, quit looking at flea markets, go ahead and buy one of these anvils. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product is well constructed but dissatisfied as a "professional tool" The product arrived well packaged. However there is quite a few small pits in the face of the anvil. My biggest disapointment is the horn is blunt at the end and does not come to a point. The smallest part of the horn is appx 1 inch in diameter which is un acceptable to me and i know it is to alot of others aswell. The horn is painted on this anvil and arrived with the paint cracking as well as chipping with lots of runs. For a professional quality tool they sure flopped on the details

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased! I'm very pleased ...wished I'd went bigger. ..but I've forged 1 ton axles into Hardy Tools on it. The face is very smooth and rings true when struck.
