Stainless steel wire
Stainless steel is a super strong wire choice. Stronger than bronze, brass and silver. It has the distinct advantage over Silver in that it will not tarnish. Because it is so hard, it could damage pliers. I use Memory sheers since they are not expensive and will give a clean cut on the Stainless steel. I offer soft stainless steel wire. But be advised, soft Stainless steel is harder than bronze!
