I used to hear folks say and joke about "you cant tear up an anvil" but I bought one at an auction that had some top uneven small chunks out damage sooooooooo I ask the son at the estate sale how in the world did that damage take place. He goes on to tell me that in Martin County Indiana if the Democrats got elected his dad set dynamite off on top the anvil and you could hear it ring all over the county NO WONDER IT GOT DAMAGED but its not so bad I still dont use it, theres plenty of smooth even top space left for me to beat on things....Sorry no help on choice of hard surface rod to use, theres some "real" welders on this site who can help

I have heard someone described as "He could break an anvil with a broom". Not someone to whom you want to loan anything.

I've met a few guys that could "tear up an anvil with a rubber mallet."

In the Marine Corps, we'd sometimes refer to someone as "the kind of guy who could screw up a crowbar".

Believe me, they're out there.
