An Anvil of Krong cursed my weapon. Is there anything to do to undo this, or should I just get rid of this item?

As far as I know, it is not possible to undo either the negative or the positive effects of an Anvil of Krong's enchantment.

As explained by DredmorWiki you have a 5/7 chance of gaining a positive enchantment, and a 2/7 chance of gaining a negative enchantment (except the first use that is always positive)

Cursed weapons can be sold to Brax or thrown into Lutefisk Cube.

I suggest you to always enchant something that you can replace with another, similar item in your inventory, in case Krong is angry with you.

If you're an archaeologist you can reroll them with This Translation Is All Wrong!; usually you can get the curse to affect a stat you don't care about anyway. Of course, if you have a weapon that's blessed 4 times and cursed once, you can probably keep using it, it's still good. – Paul Z Nov 30 '11 at 20:58

From this discussion board:

One important tip I can give everyone is watch out for cursed traps and monsters, I had to learn the hard way that they can give permanent negative stats on your equipment, ruined four weapons before I figured out what was causing it, freaking removed the regen I had on one of my swords so I was pissed. The items can be turned to unusable unless you have the skill This Translation is All Wrong! but even then that skill is likely to just re-roll other negative effects rather than remove them.
