Just a cost effective (cheap) way to drive in larger nails, punch out dowels or pins, etc. I have taken steel landscape spikes from 6 to 14 inches long and cut off or ground down the tips for use as nail sets and punches. When I can't reach a nail (in a corner, through a hole when remodeling, in an electrical box, when I don't want to leave a hammer gouge on a wood surface etc etc) the spike is ideal to finish banging in the nail, easy to grip with a large head to hit. Also good for pounding a dowel out of a through hole, larger hinge pins, etc. I even filed one tip the same V-shape with an inset slot as the head on a floor nailer because it's great to seat the t-head flooring nails when the gun or the banger doesn't put it all the way in. cheap cheap cheap
