Why arent we Hardening our hook points

A bloke at work saw me sharpening my latest batch of cheap jigheads the other day.

He says - "why dont you Heat treat the points and quench them in oil"

and I said - "I dont know - wouldnt that make them brittle"

he says - "Yeah but they would be harder and hold their points longer"

But I dont know enough about it to offer an informed comment.

Has anyone else got some thoughts on this process in relation to hook points
