In today’s post, you will learn how to craft and use Anvil in Minecraft. You can use the table of contents above to navigate quickly, whenever you want.
You can use Anvil to repair, rename, or give/combine enchantment(s) to an item. Anvil is just like sand and, gravel it affects by gravity. Meaning that Anvil will fall if no block holds it.
Unlike any useable items, Anvil has durability. It will break and eventually destroyed as you use it.
How to Craft an Anvil
To craft an Anvil, you need 3 Iron Blocks and 4 Iron Ingots.
How to Repair an Item Using Anvil
You may need to repair your item, especially if your item durability is at a low level.
To repair an item, put your damaged item in the left slot and put the material you want to use on the right slot. Make sure you have enough XP to repair your item.
There are two options to repair an item using Anvil.
First, using the material they made of like, Diamonds, Iron Ingots, Gold Ingots, Netherite Ingots, etc. For example, you can repair a Diamond Sword using Diamonds.
The second method is to use another item that has the same type. For example, you can repair a Diamond Sword using another Diamond Sword. But I don’t recommend this method it’s wasteful.
You can see the table below to know what kind of material/item require to repair an item.
|Item's name||Materials/items that can be used to repair it|
Any Wood Planks (except Crimson and Warped Planks for Bedrock Edition) or another Wooden Items that has the same type

How to Rename an Item’s Name Using Anvil
To rename an item’s name, put your item into the left slot, and click the current item’s name and rename it. You can also rename and repair your item at the same time.
How to Give or Combine Enchantment of an Item Using Anvil
You can enchant your item without using the Enchanting Table using Anvil. Anvil can also combine one or more enchantments that Enchanting Table can do.
To give/combine enchantment to your item, put your desired item on the left slot and Enchanted Book on the right. And make sure you have enough XP.
Try to make sure you give the right enchantment(s) to your item. Also, check your enchantment compatibility.
