    That is awesome! Just taking my first very green steps into smithing. I attempted to aneal a case hardened file. In a large fire and let it cool in the ashes for 2 days. It's softer via file cut method. It also took a mild warp. Was going to use it for a knife blade down the road when I got a forge and a clue. I've read case hardened files are no good for this. But also seems to be a lot of confusion on the subject. Curious what your take is?

    Case hardened files are no good. They use a cheap low carbon steel and they “case” it with very little carbon, hardened steel. The inside metal is soft mild steel in most cases. Old American files are best. Black diamond, old Nicholson, Simmons. Most of the Japanese ones are decent. American Horse shoe files are good as well. Any more questions, feel free to pm me and I’ll be happy to share the little bit of knowledge I have.

    Thank you. That is clearest explanation of case hardening I've found. So im guessing the carbon rich surface metal cools and contracts in a different manner than the mild steel underneath. Causing the warping? So unless its the only metal available and for a mild steel application case hard files are basically useless once worn out!
