    On the end grind a 45 degree face either side job done very handy. My first thought though was the join of the ring may have taken the temper out of the shaft.

    Or buy some carbide tips and make up your own tool as you already have the shaft / handle. Plenty of info on how to do it if you look and advice on the forum on where to buy the tips.
    I've just bought 10 off ebay for 11= following a link on here

    As Peter alludes to, the bar may not be suitable for holding an edge but Lons suggestion of making it into a tool for holding carbide tips could well be worth some consideration

    Two very good suggestions there carbide tip or a pointed tool just grind three sides flat and to a point and you will have a very handy tool there I use mine on every bowl I make and you can roll beads & balls even use it as a skew
