I use them around my neighbourhood to keep the vampire population under control!

Sorry could not help myself…

An interesting adaptation of a early japanese skill all which came about due to the shortage of steel in Japan, especially around the WWII era, now Japanese steel is the best in the world, and their wood working skills of not using glue and metal fasteners are unique even today.

As Loren posted the use in high humidity areas would be a real application for them, then add the experience of plonking a bare bum (or something even more sensitive) on a sauna temp nail head! not what you would call a cool experience!

Actually I did not know about them so thanks for the education lesson.

Enjoy learning about woodworking its a life long experience.
