when gentlemen took off their hats in the presence of ladies and when people used to review anvils on social networks. Rather than bemoan this sad state, I decided to act and thus just wrote my first ever product review on Amazon.
Why an anvil? My cousin is making plans to visit Korea and asked whether I needed anything from the States. Most things are readily available here, so this was the first thing that naturally came to mind. I ordered a pair, but I have yet to decide whether to use them as bookends or speaker stands. Whatever the case, they should fit quite easily in the overhead compartments.
Now I'm itching to do a few more reviews. I wasn't able to find used condoms on Amazon, so the niche is wide open for third-party vendors. Aside from that, I'm at a loss in trying to come up with new products for review. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also, there must be a website that collects these kinds of Amazon reviews, no? I've been directed to a handful on social networks, but I presume that there must be a site devoted just to Amazon reviews. I just did a Google search and came across this: http://goo.gl/UW4Mg
Solid lightweight performance for desert cliffs
I do most of my work on a slender precipice overlooking an empty stretch of desert highway that is frequented in the afternoons by a loud and pesky roadrunner. I used to order my anvils from the Acme Corporation, along with an assortment of other products such as TNT. Because Acme has gone defunct, its products are no longer available on Amazon. This is just as well as far as I'm concerned because many of its products were prone to failure.
Acme's anvils were the exception in that they were actually quite sturdy, but their sheer weight caused the precipices I worked on to collapse, plummeting rapidly to the ground moments later as I literally froze in midair trying to think of what to do next, like a beleaguered president of a powerful nation haplessly awaiting instructions from the Secret Service. I knew the product was sturdy because every time it landed on my head a few moments after I recovered from the falling precipice, the anvil not only remained intact but did so without so much as a scratch.
Although the Acme anvils were thus quite satisfactory, at least from a manufacturing standpoint, their sheer weight created far too heavy a load for the kinds of precipices I work on, as I've already noted. I'm hoping that at 100 pounds these Klutch anvils will perform just as well as their much heavier Acme counterparts while still remaining their scratch-resistance after repeated use.
For now, I've tried testing the product indoors by dropping it on my head from the ceiling. I would have liked to give the product five stars, but I rated it four stars because it seems to demonstrate a peculiar tendency to fall with the sharp end pointed downward, something that the Acme anvil never did and which I regard as a major product defect. If anyone else has used this product, I would love to hear feedback, especially regarding best practices for using the anvil to catch speedy desert fowl.
