These rustic hooks are forged from large drafting horse shoe nails. They have a little scroll on the tip. 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, coats, hats and adding a little rustic look to any wood project.

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.
