A couple years ago we decided to create a place where our most die-hard fans of the Anvil Customs brand can come together. We could never have imagined the incredible support we've encountered from the Crew, and we're incredibly thankful for their continued dedication to our little business.

The Facebook group gives us a place to communicate with our most loyal customers. We're always looking for ways to provide folks with the best leather goods we can produce, and having a trusted group of people we can listen to is absolutely crucial to our shop. Engaging with R.T.Anvil on any of the social media platforms is always welcome. But we definitely heed what the Anvil Crew have to say with a little more gravity. In turn, we frequently offer members access to unique items that are auctioned off regularly, and allow folks to buy/sell/trade their goods with a little oversight. This creates a safe moderated space where folks don't have to worry about knock-offs and the like. 

The Crew page is also a great place to share photos of your recent purchases out in the wild. It's always great for us to see how people are breaking in their leather goods. We build our products to last a lifetime and some people truly put that to the test. It's always great to see the wear and tear the working people put their wallets and belts through. It's also great to see the style and show of some of our nicer pieces actually being put to good use. Sometimes people forget that we really only get to know these pieces as they are when they're brand new. When folks share photos of their Anvil Gear with that worn in character we get all giddy. It's like seeing your kid all grown up. Practically brings a tear to our eyes hahaha. 

All of that to say we are truly humbled and grateful for all of our fans. Everyone in the crew are real swell to us at Anvil and we just wanted to say thanks to all those folks who make sure coming into the shop everyday is a real treat.

If you've been following along (or even if you haven't ) we thought it would be a good idea to give you an update on where we're currently at with our forging and casting expansion. One of our big goals this year at Anvil Customs is to develop a more robust catalog of hardgoods. First, you might be asking, "Anvil you already do so much, why the heck would you want to do that too?" ...

Every Dad has his day. Celebrate the big man this year with a nice piece from Anvil Customs. We have all sorts of options that are sure to bring a smile to his face. Keep in mind though that many of our wallets are made to order which means that it takes us a couple days to craft each one. Right now our production times are nice and short but if everyone orders a gift for him at the last minute we'll be unable to guarantee delivery by the holiday. So get your orders in now folks! Consider purchasing one of these fine pieces...

Springtime in Springfield

Spring has sprung at the Anvil Customs Shop, currently located on Park Central Square, just off of historic Rt. 66 in Springfield Missouri. The traditional excitement of nice weather, and lively events are made extra special this year, as we climb our way out of a pandemic lock-down. We've always been more of a "by appointment" type of shop. Seldom do folks want to walk in off the street to buy premium leather goods. And the added length of production times generally means that it's just more efficient for everyone involved if a person makes a purchase off the website or via PayPal invoice. But the added caution to prevent the spread of the virus has meant that we've been particularly closed off from the general public over the last year...
