I do have a pair of iron holdfasts that I bought in Williamsburg, VA in 1993. (and paid accordingly, but hand forged from Williamsburg, so I went with it) As expected, they work beautifully. The tree fork notion intrigued me, so the experiments proceeded with surprisingly results. These will never replace the Williamsburg holdfasts in their tenacity, of course. Nice back up in a pinch, and great from those who work with green wood.
