So that is what Anvils are used for…

Walking around Songpan today Greg and I came upon an interesting sight; a blacksmith forging knives. And then I realized that the only time I’ve ever seen an Anvil was in the Wile E. Coyote and Road runner cartoons, where the former would attempt to drop one on the latter from atop a cliff. I never thought before about how they were actually used and why they have that strange shape. Seeing this gentleman using made it all become clear. How cool is that!!!
