The process of making.
These start out as drafting horse shoe nails, which i buy from a local tack shop. I heat them in my forge to a yellow heat and flatting the head over my 100+ year old anvil. Then the little curl on the end is added, and finish the forging by making the hook part with my homemade jig. After forging they are cleaned of scale, reheated to a black heat and treated with linseed oil to prevent rusting.
