Overview

An Anvil is used for creating various hammered metal products.

Sources

This building becomes available to be built after the Advanced Blacksmithing technology is learned at a University of Art & Music. (But an anvil can be operated with only the Blacksmithing tech).

Cost

Tip: Build your anvil facing east to west instead of north to south because it will be much easier to work materials on the anvil using cartographer's camera from the camera options menu. The front of the anvil needs to face south (rotate once clockwise).

Use

An anvil is used to create various metal tools by shaping a block of metal into a specific pattern. Using an anvil requires the Blacksmithing tech.

This uses various smithing Tools, each with a different pattern in pushing metal:

The finished products are assigned a quality based on how close they are to the goal. The higher the quality, the more effective the tool, with 9999 being perfect. An anvil can produce the following:

from any of the following metals, with stronger metals allowing more hits before the piece becomes too fragile to work.

If you know Refined Smithery, Diamond Tipped Hatchets may be created from 3 Bronze and 21 Powdered Diamond. Diamond Tipped Hatchets may *only* be made from Bronze, and will not show up on the menu of any other metal.
