Anvil Customs many moons ago gained some of our most OG friends by heading to a little chopper rally in North Carolina called "The Smoke Out"- a true biker paradise, festival of debauchery and otherwise zany good time. This year happens to be their 20th anniversary, and if you're into that biker culture it's bound to be one you don't want to miss.
So let's say you want to raise a little hell? What types of shenanigans can you get yourself into out there? All sorts of rad stuff. Incredible rock and blues music, a painted lady contest, mini-bike races, drift trikes, 50s style drag races OH and of course the epic Ride-In-Bike Show!Check their website for all the pertinent deets. If you go, be on the lookout for Anvil Crew. I'm certain there'll be a few!
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 Cardto 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...
We're stepping into 2021 with some big plans. And in order to see these things come to fruition we need your support. The brand is & has always been about making things... big things, small things... bold things. I'm always striving to take every aspect of my creative process to the next level. At Anvil, it's about taking the elements of what a craftsman can accomplish to the next level. In 2021 that's going to take some new machines and I humbly invite your participation and support! -- The Great News is, You benefit too!
