Choose the best tool for you!

Thank you for your quick response. Wanted to let you know that I used the Pocket Anvil for the first time today on a job. I was able to fit the horses more precise and faster rather than using an anvil.  I do what I do for a living because I truly care about these horses and their comfort. The more quality work I can turn out means a lot to me. I wanted to say thank you for your handy invention.  Thanks, B.J.

I would like to tell you how I feel about your products.....I LOVE them!!!!!!!!!!!! I have been a farrier for 31 yrs. I bought the pocket anvil from Les in 1988, from that day on my career has not been the same. It has saved me both time and it has saved my hands!  I can shoe a horse 15 mins faster and my hands are not being jared by the hammer and anvil. I for the life of me can’t understand why ALL farriers wouldn’t have this wonderful tool in their arsenal. Thanks again for your GREAT tools!!!!  your friend Bob Hollis Elizabeth, Indiana... barn bob...ha ha

The Pocket Anvil has improved my speed while at the same time improving my workmanship. I just learned how to square a toe - my wife timed me - I had the toe squared and the shoe ready to nail on in 4 minutes 30 seconds. - that’s how long it takes just to get the shoe hot in the forge! Don’t get me wrong - forge work is great - but time, especially now, is money, and to my way of thinking the Pocket Anvil is truly and ingenious tool!  John P.


I love MY pocket anvil.   Thanks, Melinda D.

People Say:

We have used your Pocket Anvil during the last year - its detailed instructions make it easy to use and has saved us a lot of time shoeing 40 head of horses and mules at our ranch and back in the hills.  Its light weight and compactness make it ideal for packing. We highly recommend it. Gary P, Montana
