The exclusive provider of shears for the NBTSG certification program.
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.

The Ez-Vex was Designed to give more choices for the Next Generation of Sharpeners. There is now another choice besides the old stand by verticle Grinder (know as the TAS) and a Flat hone.
The New Generation of sharpeners wants an innovational sharpening machine that can address the issues of Easy Convexing while Keeping the Integrity of the shear and only removing as little metal as needed. It needs to be able to sharpen the titanium color coated shears without damaging the finch of the shear and it needs to be able to sharpen the Long Curved Convex Shears that the other methods are unable to do with ease.
Our Ez-Vex is the key to performance and speed without removing un-neccessary metal. The Ez-Vex was designed to do what the new sharpeners coming into the field need and want our of their sharpening systems.
Now with the new solid wheel and reconvexing clamp you can have the best of two worlds,, sharpening from inside the wheel giving you a TRUE Convex edge with ease, and now like a flat hone you can address the cosmetic work on the flat solid wheel using the optional re-convexing clamp.
