Bending a 60-penny nail was a basic benchmark in the steel-bending tradition–but the strength of 60-penny nails varied all over the board, and there was no simple way to progress from easy to harder nails. Problem solved: since 1993, IronMind’s Bag of Nails has provided a graduated and standardized way to master this classic feat of strength: bending a 60-penny nail. Bend away–and be sure to give a nod to John Brookfield, who first made short-steel bending an act of passion.
Our Bag of Nails kit includes:
- 103 pieces of uniform, graduated “nails” (steel bar) up to and beyond the equivalent of a medium-tough 60-penny nail: 25 each of Levels 1, 2, 3, and 4; 3 of the fearsome Red Nails; and 1 Challenge Gold Nail
- one pair of official IronMind bending pads, along with instructions for bending
- Tool and Travel Kit
