Anvils are the next step after the tin age. While some soft metal tools can be casted, most metal tools and items (including all hard metal ones) must be forged and hammered on an anvil using a Smithy's Hammer. It can be built from any hard metal like cast iron, bronze or steel.

Anvils are delicate and decay when placed outdoors, even on a claim. Cast iron is needed to repair them even if they were made out of another metal.


The anvil's quality is the average of the bars three times and average casting materials used to make it and rounded.

Quality for metal products is given by

As anvil affects every metal craft and there is no recycling method, it's common for more advanced players (perpetually aiming to improve their Anvil quality) to trade their old anvils (and hammers) to less advanced players.

How to Acquire

Craft the mold from 10 clay or sand and melt 5 Bars of Hard Metal inside. It must be roughly close to a lit smelter or stack furnace to melt the metal bars. If you built in a wrong spot, you can lift it while it's empty, but once you've melted bars into it, it becomes immobile. When you've added 5 bars, it will sit and cool for 24 real life hours. After this, you can right click and select Crack! The mold will be destroyed and the Anvil will be left.
