Not all seats are created equal.

I've put together this bike seat, and I'm pretty proud of it. If you've joined our mailing list you'll have seen a little bit of it already but I figured I'd do a little bit of a more detailed breakdown in blog form. If this seat is up your alley make sure you shoot me an email to anvilcustoms@gmail.com!

Here I am tooling the art onto the seat. A sailing ship with clouds, Nautical Compass, Hibiscus Flowers and 6 Swallows.

Here the finished product is, Not sure how many hours I spent tooling and staining... it was a decent amount of work for sure.

I also have to shout out the seat mounts I put on here. They're machined by an old friend of mine out of Detroit, Fab Kevin. This particular mount is laser-cut 3/16 Stainless Steel, 100% tig welded. I can't say enough about the quality of his work. Definitely built to last. I also recommend giving him a follow on Facebook.

Here's a shot of the back side. Of course I had to put the classic Skull in Wheel art on the bottom side.

If 2020 has done anything for people I hope that its given everyone some perspective on their day to day lives. Just about everyone has had at least some part of their lives upended by the pandemic, not to mention the myriad of other disasters that have reared up across the globe. I hope that it makes people count their blessings. I have seen a pretty significant increase in comments about folks reconsidering their day jobs looking to get into doing something like what we do here at Anvil...

Re-imagining Mini Long Wallet Interiors

September 16, 2020 3 min read

The Mini Long Wallet started out as a way to appease some of our customers that liked the long wallet but just wanted something a little shorter. Obviously we do try to listen to our customers' feedback because that's just good business. The original design wasn't even available as a stock item. But folks saw us make a few as requested by some of our customers on social media and before long it had a achieved a somewhat cult status in as much as a style of leather wallet can have a following. Eventually we had enough interest in them to make a version that was available on the website, and they've sold fairly well over the years. That being said, there's always room for improvement. We're constantly looking at ways we can better the styles and designs of our products.
