Pieh Legacy Collection

Nail making is one of the very oldest forms of forging. Square hand made nails have 4 times the holding power as a round wire nail. It is a great way to learn better hammer control.

To make nails start with a round or square rod usually in a size from 3/16 up to say 1/4 inch in either diameter or square.  The ideal material would be very low carbon steel but we can make good nails from either hot or cold rolled mild steel.
