Darchei Teshuva Yoreh Deah 22:4

“When one has cut the two ‘signs,’ it is forbidden to pierce the arteries in a manner similar to cutting with a knife, rather one should pierce it by hand or with a wooden stick. One may not pierce them with a nail or any other metallic item as one should be concerned that if the signs were not cut completely, the knife or nail would touch them (and invalidate the previously valid slaughter).”
