    Nail punch

    I salvaged a broken pair of pliers. Or should that be plier? One jaw was missing!

    I cut off the broken rein. I ground the remainder a bit here and there, then I bent it a bit, and blued the head. Now I have an off-set nail punch, which is a lot easier to hold. Japanese carpenters like these types, I understand. I got the idea from the Axminster tool catalogue.
