Would a long piece of metal work as a bow string?
I’m attempting to make a bow and I found a long piece of metal. It’s exactly like a really long unfolded paper clip. Considering the bow string is intended not to be rubbery and flex back, but to pull the sick backwards would it work? Also how capable would it be of slicing my forearm when I shoot it?
