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.
THIS WAS WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR. I HAD THOUGHT ABOUGHT HAVING A BLACK SMITH TO MAKE THE NAIL REPLICAS FOR ME. BUT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN TIME CONSUMING, AND A LOT MORE EXPENSIVE. YOU HAD WHAT I WANTED FOR A GREAT PRICE. PLUS IT WAS SHIPPED TO MY HOUSE AND RECEIVED QUICKLY. THANKYOU. YOUR PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE CUSTOMER.
These nails are so realistic. You can't help but experience the Lord's passion in a new way when you hold them in your hand. When I first opened the package I was disappointed by the rust on the nails, but not enough to send them back. My disappointment was only temporary. I cleaned off as much of the rust as possible, rubbed them with olive oil and placed them in the oven on 250 for 30 minutes. Solved the rust issue and couldn't be happier.
