Part of the nail collection of Smámunasafns Sverris Hermannsson. What a guy. My wife is looking at me like I'm stupid. Maybe I am?

Great !  The photo is little, but I can see that there are some very special nails that average people don't know the use. It's a pity that all the knowhow will be forgotten.  You make a monument to human craftmanship. Chapeau.
