These particular items, the crucifixion nail replicas were very effective during my Sunday morning presentation. The sound of the metal on the floor made quite an impression. Although, they were not the original nails, they are made out of steel and one only need use his or her imagination to visualize what happened when Jesus was nailed to the cross. Thank you . . .
I gave this as a gift to an instructor; he said it would help him with his Lenten devotions. My only complaint is that the "rust" effect comes off on your hands - there is a lot of rusty powder on the nail and it gets onto everything it touches. But the item itself is very heavy, real, metal...not chintzy.
