The Mafia used a lot of the best rebar when they lost Jimmy Hoffa

I built a large lot of stern hooks for a fish camp out of rebar.
I did not use what the local lumber yard had in stock but contacted the rebar supplier and the rebar engineer selected the best choice for weld-ability and salt water usage.
IIRC it was the same price as the lower grade stocked by my local lumber yard.
