In primitive times Peasants Revolt Hand Forged Iron Nail Spikes like these were made by hand, either by a blacksmith or by special nail makers. The Peasants' Revolt was a major uprising across large parts of England in Thirteen Eighty One. The rebels sought a reduction in taxation, an end to the system of unfree labor known as serfdom and the removal of the King's senior officials and law courts. Each one of these nails has been hand forged just like they did in the past even during times like the Peasants' Revolt. The shape of the head is shaped like a curved irregular triangular prism that almost looks like a hammer in itself. Spikes like these are great as anchors for a tent or as tie downs as well as furniture or other rustic wood projects. Use these next time you go camping or in your Renaissance Fair.
