We have a new distributor!Rhino anvils are now sold exclusively by:
Morgan Jade Ironworks
Phone: (509) 413-9727
Since 2012 we are making Rhino anvils only in the USA.
Some slight design changes include increasing the depth of the step and thickening the waist.
The most important change is that we are using a new alloy to cast Rhino anvils. This alloy has a very large proportion of chrome and nickel, with smaller proportions of molybdenum and manganese. This same alloy was originally designed specifically to tolerate the extreme shock and abrasion experienced by the liner plates in rock crushers. It is an air-hardening steel, and does not require quenching. Heat treatment involves only tempering, so the hardness (HRC 54) extends through the full thickness of the anvil.
Pricing as of March 27, 2017:
Baby Rhino $ 960
Papa Rhino $1260
Prices are subject to change as the cost of the steel alloy fluctuates, so please call for accurate pricing.

* the right price
* the right weight
* steel alloy
* hard, smooth face
* conical horn
* narrow heel
* 1" square hardie hole
* 5/8" pritchel hole
The Rhino anvil has a machined, polished face. The horn is conical. The heel is narrow enough and thin enough for those tricky pieces that just don't fit anywhere on an anvil with a rectangular face. Although many European anvil designs have a conical horn like the Rhino, few (if any) have the Rhino's step which is extremely useful for forging pipes, folding small pieces, bracing round stock, and similar operations.
The hardie hole is 1 inch square. See our Anvil Stakes
, designed to fit this hardie hole.
