16 penny nail also referred to as 16D (D equates to penny!) and it's 3.5" in length....that's a commonly purchase nail.... most used.... a full set of house plans will usually recommend the size of nail for the nail gun...

Usually 3.5 inches long, used for framing, requiring a real hammer and adequate hand-eye coordination to drive that fastener home.

Four stokes should to it. A non-pro can be heard whacking at it 25 times.

It's a big nail. I once got up close and personal with one when it rammed it's way through the bottom of my shoe and well into my foot.

Sounds like a nail that costs (or used to cost) 16 cents, but I know that's not it.

Most often i would hear them called framing nails. Our last local hardware shop is now gone, where the owners would go over penny nails and have everything and anything you need, not like these mega stores.
