I'm almost ready to begin working on what is almost guaranteed to be the worlds worst forged knife. It's an exciting project I know, I'll share my "progress" so everyone can get in on the entertainment value. The last thing I need to collect is something to act as an anvil and I'd like to go with what Tim Lively recommends as a good start, a piece of 4x4x14(or close to that) mild steel sunk in a bucket of concrete.
I've been googling in vain trying to figure out where I could get something like this(just the steel, I got the bucket of concrete covered LoL) and on the cheap. I haven't spent hours walking through scrapyards yet and I'm hoping I won't have to. Any ideas guys and gals?
I'm also looking at railroad track chunks on ebay as a back up plan but I'm hoping not to go that route. Thanks folks!
