Picard Peening Anvil
The anvil is used in”free hand peening”. It requires more practice to master then the jig but can achieve an even better result.
To begin with it can be used in combination with the jig; using the jig to complete the first couple of lines of peening then finishing the edge freehand with an anvil.
The three videos below were recorded during Phil’s “Masterclass” on freehand peening at the Scythe Festival in 2011 and contain lots of information on the art.
