I tried annealing the tip of the tang as you said by getting it white hot and then cooling to red slowly, It kind of worked but I couldn't get it truly white hot with just a plumbers blow torch. So the peening took a LOT of effort, It did work though in the end.

I love that yew handle - that wood really has great character.  Both handles turned out really nice.
