TENT STAKES and STAKE PULLERS
TENT STAKES I made them in two sizes. Both sizes had slightly hardened points for better ground penetration and reduced stake damage in rocky soil.
CONVENTIONAL tent stakes were forged from a 12-inch length of 3/8-inch steel (pictured top left). These had a simple hook at the top and were suitable for my campaign tent, regimental cook fly, and tournament arming pavilion.
LARGE tent stakes were forged from an 18-inch length of 1/2-inch steel (pictured top right). These had a “D” hook at the top and were particularly suited for large merchant tents
