    I am a blacksmith Historical Interpreter in Texas and have been smithing for over 15 years. No self-respecting blacksmith would leave tools scattered around on the floor as they present a serious tripping hazard. Those anvil horns can be sharp enough to ruin your day if you fall on one. Lots of artistic license in this one.
