Your your striker is dull then you can use sand paper to square up the edges or if it's really bad then a small file and lightly file it square again. I wouldn't change the angle of the striker from what it came from the factory with.

Not sure why you'd want to do that... To use a ferro rod, you only need a steel striker to create a spark and to build your fire... You can buy a specific striker or use a steel pocketknife. Both work fine and don't require a sharpened ferro rod. :-)

Why do you want to sharpen the steal striker? It doesn't have to be sharp to work.
