Effects of patenting temperature on bending fatigue resistance of pearlitic steel filaments were investigated experimentally. The fatigue resistance of steel filaments was carried out by using hunter machine, specially designed for ultra fine-sized steel wires, in the controlled conditions. The transmission electron microscopy (TEM) was used for observing the overall microstructure. It revealed that the fatigue resistance as well as tensile strength increased together with increase of patenting temperature from 510 to $600^{\circ}C$, while the endurance ratio ($\sigma_e/\sigma_{TS}$) of filaments decreased. It is believed that this variation of mechanical properties with change of patenting temperature should be strongly influenced by the change of microstructure. The bending fatigue properties of steel filaments were discussed based on microstructural parameters.
