99.9% Pure Copper Common Nails / Rivets

Commonly referred to as copper rivets in boatbuilding, these smooth shank copper common nails are made from pure 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 stump, 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.

 Copper Burrs Need copper burrs to go with your nails so you can round them over to create rivets? They're hard to find, but we have them right here.

I'm half way through attaching some fire hose to the gunwales of my boat. The nails worked great and, they look good too!

Copper Nails

The copper nails seem to be of a high quality and work fine for my intended use. I only needed a small quantity, and found what I was looking for at Fair Wind Fasteners.
