Placeholder Atlas 65lb Anvil for Knife Makers — The Bevel
Skip to content

If you are looking for a new anvil then consider using the Atlas 65lb. The Atlas Anvil is a cast steel, hardened anvil of 4140 alloy built exclusively for bladesmiths in the style of a modified sawyers anvil. The horn and heel are removed, and all the mass is put under the hammer with a small bevel, large bevel, and a 2″ radius around the hardy hole. The anvils are painted with black paint to prevent rust, but the coating can be easily removed.

Hornless anvils, such as the Atlas anvil, are popular among knifemakers due to their compact size and portable nature. They have higher mass-to-face ratio, a flat top surface, a hardy hole for tool attachments, and a radius edge for shaping and drawing out metal. They are also versatile and can be used for a range of metalworking tasks.

4140 is a high-strength alloy steel commonly used for making anvils. It is preferred due to its toughness, durability, heat-treatability, availability, and cost-effectiveness. It has been heat-treated to increase its hardness and wear resistance, making it suitable for heavy-duty applications such as anvils.

The most recent iteration of the Atlas Anvil does indeed have a mini swage on the base with round, square, and hex shapes. This can be a useful feature for knifemakers and other metalworkers who need to create specific shapes or angles in their work.

The flat base allows easy clamping to our anvil stands, for a rock solid mounting, yet quickly removable for easy use of the swages.

 If you are still using an improvised anvil, consider upgrading today!
