  Razor wire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Although it is sharper than the barbs of barbed wire, it is not actually razor sharp; the name "razor wire" is a slang term derived from a manufacturer's brand name.
Unlike barbed wire, which usually is available only as plain steel or galvanised, barbed tape is also manufactured in stainless steel, to prevent the points from rusting to bluntness.
Typically the core wire is galvanised and the tape is stainless, although fully stainless barbed tape is used for expensive permanent installations or underwater usage.

 Wire obstacle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the military science of fortification, wire obstacles are defensive obstacles made from barbed wire, barbed tape or concertina wire.
Depending on the requirements and available resources, wire obstacles may range from a simple barbed wire fence in front of a defensive position, to elaborate patterns of fences, concertinas, "dragon's teeth" and minefields hundreds of metres thick.
One example is the "low wire entanglement", which consists of irregularly placed stakes that have been driven into the ground with only some 15 cm (six inches) showing; the barbed wire is then wrapped and tightened on to these.

Once the posts were in place reels of barbed wire - concertina wire - would be affixed to the post, unwound and attached to a second post (and often doubled back again to provide an additional layer of protection).

Furthermore wire would commonly be laid in such a configuration as to draw advancing enemy troops into ideal range for enfilading machine gun fire.

 Concertina fencing entanglements
Wires forming the coils are clipped together at intervals so the concertina opens to a cylindrical shape 16.4 to 49.2 feet long (depending on structure and build of opening) and 3 feet in diameter.
The collapsed concertina is tied with plain-wire bindings attached to the quarter points of a coil at one end of the concertina.
When opening the concertina, remove these bindings and twist them around the carrying handle for use in retying the concertina when it is again collapsed.

 Concertina Springs - Concertina.net Discussion Forums
The major disadvantage of mig wire for making springs is that it is usually mild steel, or something very similar and would probably not have enough springiness.
The usual spec is 1/2 hard drawn brass wire, 0.025 ins dia, or use one of the phosphor bronze wires.
My original posting was initially prompted by thinking that the MIG wire could be useful in an emergency since it is a fairly hard, copper-coated steel, but since it appeared to make a good spring I then wondered if anyone had used this wire to make springs as a permanent replacement.

Barbed-tape concertina (standard concertina barbed tape) is a commercially manufactured wire coil of high-strength-steel barbed wire that is clipped together at intervals to form a cylinder.
Barbed wire or tape may be used in appropriate situations to construct a tangle-foot obstruction either outside a single perimeter fence or in the area between double fences to provide an additional deterrent to intruders.
The wire or tape should be supported on short metal or wooden pickets spaced at irregular intervals of 3 to 10 feet and at heights between 6 and 12 inches.
