Nails are the eternal witnesses of the historical way of hardware production development.

From time immemorial people learned to fasten parts of their buildings by means of pivots from solid substances, slightly wedge-shaped, pointed with one end and with the head at the other end. The first such nails were, of course, made ofwood. Firm thorns of some plants, wooden knots were used as such wooden nails, etc. Fishbones were used too.
