Rated 5 out of 5 by HotRodLincoln 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 Strickdaddy 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 Superiorrenos 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
