Well, it was not case hardend very deep so I had to reharden it myself.
I got some hardening powder with some potassium cyanide in it and it worked well.
A short field test was a success.

Some say it won't be very deep harden.
I may try the old way next time in the wood burner.

Another name is hammer.

It's what the flint in the jaws of the cock strike and shaves fine whisps of red hot steel towards the pan full of prime.
A flintlock.
