Anvil USA


Anvil Industries was a customer of Vogel Brothers Corporation in the barber and beauty field 25 years ago. The assets and name of Anvil Industries was then purchased by David and Don Vogel through a corporate buyout, the name remained the same but we re-branded as Anvil USA. Vogel Brothers, as a brand, was hidden from recognition by the structure of private label manufacturering but Anvil USA was not. It was a separate entity and was established as such. After meeting with much resistance on this bold move within Vogel Brothers existing customer base, it was necessary to divest Anvil of its Barber and Beauty sales due to the aggressive atmosphere. Anvil USA's fly tying scissors were then created and marketed to the consumer through a network of dealers and distributors. Five years later, Anvil USA's brand slowly emerged in the pet grooming field. In 2012 Vogel Brothers Corporation was sold and the Anvil USA brand was purchased along with inventory and needed machinery by Don and Barbara Vogel. The corporate name and brand is Anvil USA. We currently sell worldwide to individuals, dealers and distributors. Anvil USA is continuing the shear manufacturing tradition of which Vogel Brothers built its business upon some 325 years ago. We are passionate about the quality of Anvil USA's tools and the families they support during their lifetime of use.

Western Workshops

 Donna Wright started Western Sharpeners Workshop a few years ago because she found it difficult to get to all the wonderful shows back east and felt a call to serve this great industry by coordinating educational opportunities in the western states. The goal from day one has been to bring great educators out west to give regional sharpeners an opportunity to learn, network, and grow their business.

The intent is to host a western workshop every Presidents Day weekend in February and every Columbus Day weekend in October.
