      MOUSEHOLE FORGE

     Between approximately 1800 and 1860 Mousehole Forge of Sheffield, England was the premier anvil maker of the world. How could a small manufacturer restricted to about one acre of land with a forge shop having just 9,000 square feet, using primarily water power to drive their antiquated helve hammers and other equipment, compete so successfully with other famous English anvil makers, using more modern methods and machinery. For well over 200 years anvils have been made at Mousehole Forge, which for two centuries, at least, was the only works of its kind in the world.

    This is the story of this small company and their anvils.

    This book tells about knife making and the forging of knives. The author had as a goal to record and illustrate the essentials of other edge tools. He hopes in this way to be able to contribute to the preservation of this part of his cultural heritage and that as many people as possible share in the creative joy of making a knife.
