These cute rustic hooks are forged from horseshoe nails. They have a straight edge cut on the end. They have been treated with linseed oil to help prevent rusting. These are made by me, Kevin, in my blacksmith shop named Red Maple Forge.
These would be great for small items like keys, jewelry, rings, necklaces, cooking utensils and adding a little rustic look to any wood project.
- Item dimension: 1 1/4" (32mm)
- Finish: Dark slate gray with some blue tone.
- Hole size: 1/8" (~3mm)
- This lot is for 10 hooks.
*Optional screw size is 16mm (5/8 inches) long
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.

Really happy with these! I had been looking for small hooks without a scroll on the tips because they fit through the small holes on my studio tools, especially the quilting rulers. The hooks are not too sharp, and the small profile works beautifully while still providing hanging stability. And as a fellow craftsperson, I enjoy seeing the handmade hooks in my space.
