Product Description

Cut nails bring a bygone air to furniture and cabinetry projects. Cut nails are preferred by those who are trying to keep their projects historically accurate or just appreciate the interesting look they provide. Cut nails are sheared by machine from steel plate, producing a nail with a distinctive wedge shape that ends in a blunt point. Cut on all sides to produce four edges, theyâ€TMre often called “square nails.” Cut nails possess great durability. They are hard to pull out because the wood fibers are pushed downward and wedge against the nails. A cut nail tears through the wood fibers, rather than splitting the fiber fibers as wire nails do, thus minimizing surface splitting of the wood.Headless Brad Standard: This type of nail is used in wood applications where a slender nail will minimize splits. Often used for furniture repair, cabinet work and picture framing.

Verified Purchase
I got onto the idea of trying cut nails when I purchased online the Spring of 2006 Woodworking Magazine issue with articles by Christoper Schwarz (he has books for sale on Amazon).

With these nails I made a nifty Shaker-inspired silverware tray, following the detailed instructions concerning nailing and other things that are in that issue.

As I properly pre-drilled the holes for the nails and aligned the flat cross-sections of the nails with the grain rather than across it, I had no problems whatsoever. Cut nails supposedly hold better than wire nails (the modern kind).

If you're wondering why they cost so much I searched around and this is what they cost. Probably these nails are from the Tremont Nail Company--- nice folks from which I've bought cut nails by the pound. But the 4d headless ones are expensive per nail, no matter where you go. So buying just 1/8th of a pound here makes sense.
