I didn't read everything on this thread but... Isn't the "file test" done after quenching and before tempering? I don't think I've heard of doing it after tempering and I'm not sure what it would tell me. But I would think if the file skates across a blade after tempering that would tell me it is too hard. I personally wouldn't want to have to sharpen that blade.
