99.9% Pure Copper Common Nails / Rivets / Spikes

Commonly referred to as copper rivets in boatbuilding, these smooth shank copper common nails are made from pure, solid copper, the highest grade available. 

Our nails are available in standard gauges (penny sizes), and are useful for a variety of projects beyond wooden boatbuilding as well. Sink one in a tree stump to kill the the tree for easier removal, use them for copper flashing, or hang up your cedar shingles with copper nails. These will last much longer than galvanized nails in coastal regions, and are suitable for use below the waterline on a sea-going boat. They also work great for decorative projects, or accents on cedar stripped canoes. Use our handy guide below to measure shank and head sizes to make sure that what you are ordering will fit your application.

Purchased nails for upgrade of weatherstripping material, on old double hung windows

The perfect fit

Our company is installing over 500 lineal feet of 6 1/2 ft wide highly customized copper soffit and the cooper trim nails we received blend perfectly and work like they should.

Exactly what I needed

The copper trim nails are perfect for the copper accessories being installed around the exterior of the home we’re repairing.

The copper nails are very high quality and fit the need for me. I purchased them before and was very satisfied with them.
