it's all about the nail head
Wanted a rustic look for 2 sliding barn doors for a double wide closet. Worked great. Used screws from the back for holding power and the wrought heads nails from the front. 50 pack was the perfect size for each door.

better than what I thought they would be
I was looking for rustic looking nails to display a bunch of antique bottle openers on a barn board. The color is better looking ( and darker) in person than the picture. thank you!

Charles R on Nov 16, 2017
I am building a pirate's chest. It's a present to Captain "Redhands" William. I want it to look authentic especially as I plot a mutiny against Captain William. I plan to maroon him on Skull Island with the same chest and and naught but a bottle of rum. Then take charge of the good ship the "Greasy B*stard" and terrorize the high seas.

On the hand forged nails what is the approximate measurement of head on nail?
Kris K on Jun 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The head size is 5/16" to 3/8"
Are these black?
A shopper on Jul 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can say that. Perhaps a really dark, flat charcoal color. They are not painted, but really come that dark. This picture shows them with too much light and they look steel grey, but they are actually much blacker than this.
I'm building a wall cabinet out of 3/4" oak, and I want it to have a medieval look. Would the 1 1/2" version of these be appropriate (incl. strong enough)?
TIMOTHY G. on Jan 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes but realize the nails are narrower at the bottom and get wider at the top. Use a soft head hammer to prevent finish from chipping off the nail. Otherwise very rustic and cool looking. I've used them on barn doors and other various wood art projects.
I would like to use these on a pine board to display jewelry, on cards. Will they work well only nailed 1/2-3/4 of the way in?
Debby M on Sep 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I used these, along with some replicated antique hardware to build a pirate's treasure chest. As for only nailing them partway in, I think it would work but you would need to hammer them in at least 3/4" to ensure they would not come out. That said, order accordingly, recessed 3/4"-1" + sticking out (length) and you should be fine.
I would like to use these nails for a barn board wall project. I would need the 1.5", but my main question is does anything adverse happen when you hammer them in? In other words, would they get too nicked or scratched? Should i use a hammer with no indentations on the hamner face? Should i hammer them in with some type of material covering head of nail? Any tips, or am i over thinking it? I know gun blue can be used to "antique" things if they should look antiqued, especially if i scuffed the nails. Thank you.
Jeff L on May 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have used these nails on a few occasions. I saw nothing adverse as a result of striking the head of the nail with a hammer. I did, and would use a hammer with a smooth face. I drill a pilot hole when using these. Look at the picture and notice that the nail shaft is wedge shaped. You want to drive them in with the wide part running with the grain of your wood. If you drive them in with the wide part going cross grain, you run the risk of splitting the wood.You'll see once you start using them...I really like them.
I would like to use these nails to put door handles on barn doors. The doors are 1 and 1/2 inch thick. Would you suggest getting the one inch nails? Thank you
Casey G on Sep 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Casey, Yes i would you the one inch nail for extra strength, assuming your material is at least that thick. Also pre drill a smaller hole and fill with gorilla glue. good luck

Just wanted confirm. So 50 nails in total in 1 pack of wrought iron nails? Am i correct?
Arlem on Sep 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, 50 total.
Where are these nails made?
Philip K on Feb 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am sorry I don't know. We actually did not use them as we were trying to match something specific from a client and these did not match.
are the 50-nail packs blended lengths or can I specify 50 nails, each one being 1.5" long?
Jim A on Jan 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Mine were all the same length. They're all 1.5 ". The shanks of the nails are irregular shaped. Some are almost flat.
Are these made of iron?
Hillary H on Jan 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These nails are made of mild steel. Real wrought iron has not been made in the US since 1950.
Are they iron nails?
PartyDiva on Aug 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Just pre drill and watch how you strike the heads. It takes the paint off. I don’t have a soft blow hammer. I use a piece of pine. Sometimes I touch up with a marker. It’s more precise.
i am covering a wall with 1/4" material, the drywall is 1/2", what length should i use, should i drill a small hole 1st?
Mike L on Nov 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would use 1 1/4, You can per drill,that would be time consuming and depending what the 1/4 in material is made of. If it is a ply I would, if it a composit no.
What are the diameter of the 1-1/2 inch nails?
FayeG on Apr 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: These are roughly 3/16" to 1/4" diameter.
How are these nails measured- from the base of the head or end to end?
Joe H on Mar 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Measured from the base of the head to the end of the nail. The head itself will sit flush on the surface of the table or whatever you are using them for as a decorative feature. Hope this answer helps.
are these 6 penny nails?
Chris S on May 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: A bit smaller...used purely for decoration
Can you clinch these nails into a board? Will they bend over on the tip or are they too rigid?
John on Dec 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They will bend but be advised that they are pretty tough. It will take more force to bend them than a normal nail. This could cause you to damage your wood when you bend them. I used some recently that went through both pieces but strength was not critical so I just cut them off. They are pretty tough to cut as well.
i am wanting to use these nails to top nail a 12 inch wide 3/4 inch oak plywood floor going to strip up the plywood to 12 inch wide strips ,looks like I need to pre drill also ,anyone ever done this before ? any ideas
bass4579 on Nov 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Did you end up using these nails? I'm about to do the same thing but our plywood is pine. Expensive nails for it not to work well.
I'm looking for Wrought iron nails with decorative head half inch or larger between half inch and three-quarter would be ideal. Are they available ?
Jose B on Oct 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These work great for a decorative look. They worked best for my project when I drilled a very small hole before
What is the head size on these wrought head nails?
TJ F on Sep 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 5/8", 1" and 1-1/2" with a head size of 5/16" x 3/8"
