IronMind® Red Nail™ Roster


The IronMind Red Nail sets the standard for excellence in short steel bending. In 1995, grip-great John Brookfield started the challenge as the first person recognized as having bent the infamous Red Nail, and it wasn't until 2003, when Gavin Holle did it “with disarming ease,” that John's challenge was met. Since then, the Red Nail Roster has grown with the names of others who have successfully stepped up to the fearsome Red Nail and walked away the victor.
