Every time you scan through Facebook, turn on the T.V., or flick through stations on the radio you encounter something amazing. It probably seems annoying at first, but if you can allow yourself to step back and look at a larger picture, I promise you'll be impressed. You're probably tired of hearing about Colin Kaepernick of the 49ers refusing to stand for the National Anthem. And you're probably exhausted from hearing about the Dakota Access Pipeline. And I'm not even going to start on the deluge of misinformation and mudslinging related to the 2016 Presidential Election. The fact of the matter remains: People in Our Great Country are passionate about the things the believe in. They care to the point that they're willing to voice their opinions as loud and vehemently as possible. And the beautiful thing is this, they're totally allowed to do that. Our country has a wonderful history of protest. And while it may not change things as quickly as we'd like, many times it's proven to actually get stuff done. It's these "little revolts" -though at times they aren't so little- where American's exercise their freedoms that make America unique and great. Anvil is proud to operate in this Country, and you'll find no lack of Patriotism here. Even the parts we don't agree with we still appreciate.

Now with all that stoicism out of the way, we're going to go cut things and sew them back together while we listen to Rock & Roll and sip coffee. God Bless the U.S.A.

It's official, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are headed to the Super Bowl this year! Much to our chagrin the Bucs have home field advantage for the first time in NFL history but we have faith in our boys to get the job done. Ultimately we suspect it'll be an intense game!

To celebrate we're having a contest! The winner will get a whopping $250 Gift Card to our store! All you have to do is predict the winner, and guess the final score(for tie-breakers). We're obviously pretty stoked to see our Chiefs headed to the big game!

The Forging and Casting fundraiser is live! If you head to that page you'll find a place where you can support/donate towards our goal. We're aiming to get a few new machines this year that will improve the quality of the metal studio. Namely, we're looking at getting a 3D Printer and a Vacuum Sealed Casting Machine. Each of these machines will enable us to more efficiently craft specialized hardware. Currently the forged belt buckles take an exorbitant amount of time to craft, and you can see that reflected in what I have to charge for the belts in order to turn some sort of profit. That being said, when you're a very small team its in everyone's best interest to make things as efficient as possible on the production side of things. Luckily we live in an era where technology makes it much more viable for a small team like ours to make a large selection of items, provided you can afford to purchase said technology. It's a big investment for a small business...
