Railroad Spike Knob


(1 customer review)


These are great for bathroom vanities, medicine cabinets, kitchen drawers and cabinets, and dressers. Too many applications to name! These knobs are also great as wall hooks/hangers for towels or coats.



Bolts mount from behind, whereas screws mount directly into the material.
The standard screw length for this item is 7/8″ in length.
The standard bolt length is 1″.
If you are mounting to material that is less than 1″ thick such as cabinets, you will require bolts. If you are mounting to material thicker than 1″ or into a wall, you can choose screws, or you can request longer bolts in the notes section upon checkout.

NOTE: the screw mount method may cause scraping on surface when being mounted. Seller not responsible for any damage caused during installation.

If your project has special requirements for mounting hardware please message me, or include in the order notes what size you require. I’m happy to accommodate special requests!


Items are hand made using traditional blacksmithing techniques, therefore no two are exactly the same. Small variations in dimensions and shape may be present in each piece. Items may vary from photos slightly. These variations only add to the unique beauty of each piece, and are a testament to their authenticity as hand forged items.


This is a brushed steel satin finish that goes well with both modern and rustic decor. It is not a high shine, factory gloss kind of look. Some forge scale will be present. While it does have a slight shine, it is not polished steel. It is however wonderfully unique, and offers a truly handmade feel that you can’t find with mass produced items. After wire brushing, I add a no VOC clear coat which provides a barrier to help prevent corrosion and bring out the natural beauty of the hand worked metal. (For outdoor use, message me BEFORE ordering to add a coat of spar urethane.)


This satin black finish allows the texture and forge work in the steel to come through, whereas paint covers the natural beauty of the hand worked texture of the steel and is prone to chipping. We use an oxidation process that provides an extra layer of corrosion protection while offering a deeper, more authentic blacksmith finish.

If you like this item but are wanting something with a different look, size, or finish please contact me. I am happy to do custom orders!

If you have any questions please feel free to reach out!

    These are awesome, the oil blackened finish goes great with our log cabin. The craftsmanship is top notch and nice way to something different.
