SReynolds Posted July 31, 2016 Share Posted July 31, 2016 Make em wide or long and narrow. I forge the flame tip first on horn. Then lay the meaty portion of nail head on near side edge of face. Hammer just off center to widen. Little bit to left and same to right. The hook; I roll an eye to back side with scrolling tong and then the hook to the front with same or a jig. I place a punched hole in the flame. I perform that cold and with help from a punching block. I can hand these out to folks if I like when they visit the historic village smithy or sell them. Make great key ring hangers. I can make one while folks watch even if the have a very short attention span. No. 16 horse shoe nail. These are of my own invention. Feel free to use them as you like.
