I agree 100% with the striker being the biggest factor.  I make strikers out of old broken machetes and knives and they work great.  The cheaper 1/4 rods are lousy with a good homemade scraper because if ground properly it can dang near make a small rod disappear in 20 strikes

In Houston, we call them Tyranosaurus Roach.  2" long is common.  They are so big, they come in at night and flip the lights on just to watch YOU scurry around!

I just looked up farrier supplies on Google and started calling every name on the list.  I finally found one at Ken Davis in Ohio.  Nobody else had them and didn't think they would see one for several months.  Even Cliff Carroll Farrier Supply, the folks who finished the anvil, didn't have one.  I called them and asked to talk to someone about the anvil and the guy said "I can help you" and I said "thank you, what is your name, please?" and he said "Cliff Carroll".  Nice fellow but he had no anvils.  These anvils are cast near Dallas, Tx and that foundry must make them for most of the anvil suppliers in the US: TFS, Cliff Carroll, Emerson, etc.
