Wirenails are indeed the rule today, but not all wirenails are the same. They vary in size and in other ways as well. Various nails are manufactured for specific purposes, with differently proportioned and shaped heads and shafts.
Wirenails are mostly used for very rough and heavy duty woodwork. Manufacture of these nails starts with a coil of wire which is fed into a machine that cuts it into predetermined lengths.

Once the wire is cut, the machine creates the nail’s head and point after which it falls into a holding bin.
The manufacturing process leaves behind gripper marks, on the nail’s shank, just below its head and actually serves the purpose of providing extra grip, thus preventing the nails from pulling out of the wood.
Wirenails can be used for general purpose fixing as well as the construction of roof trusses and pallets.
