The reason From The Anvil make these stays totally in steel is that the monkey tail can be drawn down to a very fine point, giving it a quality not achievable by casting and in addition the body and knuckle are much stronger. The Monkeytail Stays can be matched up with the Monkeytail Fasteners to create a uniform look.
