A Blacksmith's anvil is one of humankind's first production tools used for very early manufacturing of metal objects. Before the invention of modern welding techniques, a Smith could "forge weld" two pieces of iron together using heat, Borax, and a few strong blows of his hammer. So here we are now, recreating one of the oldest metal fabrication tools with one of the most modern metal fabrication tools. This popular style of anvil is referred to as the "London Pattern". We see this pendant as symbolic of creativity and artisanship. Leather cord not included.
