What is spring steel?
Spring steel is, as its name implies, perfect for springs. Because springs are made to be pushed and flexed, a metal with lower yield strength loses shape and ceases to function as a spring. Spring steel is also commonly used for prop swords, lockpicks and aircraft landing gear. The most widely used spring steel incorporates nickel as a part of the alloy and is used as music wire for pianos, guitars and other instruments.
