Nail sizes

Interesting. If you look at the "steel wire gauge" under the heading "diameter" you get a usefull table. If you could find a supplier of all the different wire thicknesses given in that table you could cut your own "nails" and progress to harder bends much more gradually. For example, it appears that 2.5 gauge is probably the stock from which 60 penny nails are cut (it is 0.253 inches thick). If the 60 penny nails are a little too hard for you, you could try either 3 or 3.5 gauge (0.244" and 0.234", respectively).
