Apologies if this has been discussed before. Out of curiosity, how important is a pointy tip for your usual uses? The needle-like tip, I mean? In my case, piercing ability is nice to have but I don’t necessarily need the pointiest tool in the shed. For boxes, it’s convenient to poke and cut, but that’s about the most use I get out of a sharp point. And even the fairly tame point of a drop point knife shape will manage this just fine.
