Copper Cut Tacks : is this size and weight tack good for artist stretching canvas. I have not been able to find a copper tack with a sharp point?

This tack does have a sharp point for copper. Works great in soft woods, but will bend. I was using hard wood and some holes I had to drill first. Hopes this helps.

I can tell you that they are SHARP! Don't stick your hand into the box with any force or you'll be sorry. I am using them for canoe restoration, but I think that in the correct length they would be good for stretching canvas over art frames, just like they are good for tacking stretched canvas over a wood canoe frame.

Many people use Copper Cut tacks for stretching canvas. Just make sure to use them at a regular interval around the edge of your canvas - the closer together obviously the better it will hold.  Yes -- these are certainly sharp.
