    Biggest I’ve seen are 12″ spikes for landscape ties. That one looks a bit more specialized. I suppose you could cut some rebar if you’re using it for tent(?) stakes.

    I don't do a fast job. I don't do a slow job. I do a half fast job.

    if I use rebars then I have to bent a U at the end to avoid the ropes from sliding off.

    Large tent stakes aren’t cheap.

    I made dozens of stakes for all sizes of tents. The biggest was a 16×33 military surplus tent our club had. I used 18″ pieces of 5/8 round stock, cut “rings” off of 1″ black pipe and welded those just below the top of the round stock…. those kept the tent rope from sliding off and made a handy way to pull the stake

    I was just thinking the same thing ,

    Plus like Jim mentioned , someplace that does paving stones and so on , they use them for the plastic border

    You can also use those cork screw things that are meant to screw into the ground for hooking dog leashes to

    That’s what I used in lieu of bent rebar to tie down more securely my 10X20 backyard canopy. So far, none have rusted out and some have been in the ground over a half a dozen years and survived some pretty windy storms. Only thing, if you wrench them too much putting them in, the odd one will snap. Our soil here is quite clay ladden though. I use a length of scrap plastic electrical conduit to twist them in by hand.

    You could a length round rod from Metal place. Cut it the length you want. You could welded a washer on one end of end.
