Bending steel is one of the most satisfying feats of strength and Matteo Angelin, having proven his power as he bent an IronMind Red Nail under official conditions, has just been certified on this benchmark steel bend.

Matteo describes himself as a small town pharmacist who has “a little home gym in my garage, a beautiful girlfriend, three cats,” but don’t misread Matteo’s quiet demeanor because in a year and half of bending, he’s achieved this very notable success.

“I heard about [the IronMind Nails] after approaching the grippers and the first time I tried, I bent the Level 2 ,Green Nail,” Matteo told IronMind.

“At first I was bending some nails every day [and] then I met Mr. Mattia Crispino (Red Nail '16) who taught me the following routine: Day 1 kink, Day 2 sweep, Day 3 crush, Day 4 Rest,” said Matteo.

IronMind would like to thank Alessandro Menegaz for refereeing Matteo Angelin’s successful official attempt to bend an IronMind Red Nail—congratulations, Matteo, you have been certified and your name added to the Red Nail Roster!
