1045 is a great steel for making hammers and tools, that require a medium level of hardness and toughness.

Weighs 38-39kg. When used upright as an anvil the mass is concentrated beneath your hammer blows, greatly increasing efficiency compared to a traditional pattern anvil of the same weight.

It is very easy to heat treat with a water quench and gives great results: Click here to see Paul Florence (The Cutlers Forge) heat treating his 1045 post anvil
