First J Hooks

Recommended Posts

Today I made my first set of J hooks. The first hook had a failed attempt on the curly cew but the second hook was successful! They have both been wire brushed then polished with 00 steel wool. If I am going to leave these hooks how they are, should i put some type of wax on them? Also should i use the steel wool before or after wax is applied? Lastly, is 00 too course or should I go to 000 or 0000 steel wool, or if I am supposed to use a variety? Feel free to comment on the hooks and give any tips and tricks to making them and how I can improve my next hooks.
