We are very excited to have these anvils for sale. Drakon Forge is now making 40kg and 80kg knifemakers / hornless anvils. They are based on the old Scandinavian anvil designs that are hornless but do have hardy holes. The face is
hardened and tempered carbon steel and provide lovely feedback during forging. It is also completely flat, so very useful for knife makers. After extensive testing as a sledging anvil I know they can take a hammering ;)

We now have blacksmith and bladesmith forges for sale. While there are some great bladesmith forges available on the market I find that they are to small when making bigger blacksmith pieces or bigger bladesmith pieces like
axes etc. For that reason we have developed what we believes is an excellent gas forge that is efficient, easy to maintain and versatile. The forge can go up to temperatures needed for forge welding and making damascus
steel (see video). The inside dimensions are 342mm deep by 154mm high and 230mm wide, this length can be extended using refractory bricks (also available). External dimensions are 394mm wide, 380mm high (950mm with
burner) and 350mm deep. Costs are R4850 (50% deposit and 3 week lead time) and include the burner and forge with bricks for manipulating the openings to exactly the size you need. Forge burners on their own are R2200.
A review from a customer, Rean Lubbe. "Having bought a forge to replace my postbox forge that was simply too small to fit any large or oddly shaped work in, I decided to try it out by forge-welding copper and Nickel together into a bar to make Mokume-Gane. It managed this beautifully. The primary thing that impressed me was the fact that I can put the piece I'm working on, on the floor of the forge inside it, I don't have to hold it with tongs until it's at temperature. And the fact that it can get to a serious heat in a short amount of time (just turn up the gas). I started at 7:30, having prepared the billet the night before, and finished at 8, in time to shower and be at work before 9. The fact that the forge can heat up and heat a piece of whatever I intend to forge in a short enough time (a few minutes) that I can actually do half an hour's worth of forging before I go to work in the morning has made it possible for me to enjoy my hobby in a way not possible before. I cannot over-state that the fact that it can bring metal to a heat fast enough, and does not require me to hold the metal (meaning I can prep everything else while it's in the forge) means I can do forging in half an hour, and ACTUALLY GET SOMETHING DONE in that half an hour. Being able to without hassle (it would otherwise be possible, but with hassle) do some forge-work before going to work really makes a big difference to my overall quality of life. I consider this an investment in my overall welfare, not just my workshop."

Nothing like a good axe when you need it.
Made from hard wearing armour plate our axes keeps a lovely edge and just keeps on coming. Compact but with enough weight to get the job done they are great for hiking, camping and survival trips. With an all steel construction that has been hardened and tempered you have piece of mind that you will not lose a handle at a critical moment. They include a hammer face at the back for battoning, more than 2 meters of usable paracord in the handle and a slot for different size hex nuts. They also come with a leather sheath to protect the very sharp edge.
