You've just broken your fave small straight extraction elevator.
Reshape and Sharpen w lab burs and reuse. Lot of times they work better especially w mallet.

Great Tip Paul. Does it "weaken" the metal at the tip making it more prone to break later on? Mo

I don't know if metallurgically it's weaker Mo. Certainly is weaker due to being thinner. Good question should we heat treat and quench or what. And they can and do break. But they can be made very sharp and useful. We can always dig out a metal tip Fx with Piezo.
