Why Are There Different Points On Nails?

The nail point (diamond point) is a four sided taper. A very important eliment of quality is that the four tapers are equal and “clean”. This keeps the nail driving straight. Diamond and long diamond nails can be “stabbed” into the wood or gypsum to get them started leaving the “off hand” available to steady the material. This is a great feature when nailing into an awkward spot or when speed is important.
