Good afternoon. I just finished a striker today. I used a piece from an old ferriers file and quenched it in oil and Tempered it. By not tempering it would it not make it brittle. I’m just think if I dropped it on a rock it could be game over? Should I reheat it to non magnetic again and requench and not temper?

Hi, if your striker works – great! Yes not tempering isnt logical – it was just the way I was taught to make the strikers when I started out blacksmithing back in Denmark in 1997 (in a small folk museum)
