Someone forgot to feed the squirrels cake.
Still, Chris, you're gonna have to spray some water on that chain to get it right. Everyone knows that Patina = Tone. When you post a YouTube of you banging away to the background of "I've Been Workin' on the Railroad," folks will shake their heads and say, "Not enough rust on the chain."
Some Anvils are iron because it’s a lot cheaper. There is no other functional reason. Steel is better in all other respects. Mostly, a forged steel anvil returns nearly 100% of the energy of the strikes, the result being that a lot more work is accomplished for the same amount of effort.Anvils are iron to deaden the hammer blows (in addition to being cheap). Some people like 4140 steel cause its super strong, but it can give you RSI because it rebounds the hammer significantly more.
