Anvil firing (also known as anvil launching or anvil shooting) is the practice of firing an anvil into the air with gunpowder. In the UK, the term refers to a method of testing anvils.[citation needed] Black powder was poured onto the top of the anvil and ignited. If the anvil did not shatter it was deemed safe to use.
