Apparently, KnitPicks has switched to a Chinese manufacturer and has blunter tips and stiffer cords ( I was reading about it on Rav.) I'll try to post a link:

I'm so glad I saw this! Henceforth WEBS gets my needle orders. Thanks. I recently got a size 0 fixed circ from WEBS and it has the tip I wanted. Maybe I better hurry up and get the rest of the sizes I want before they change too. I cannot abide blunt needle tips.

Wow. I wish I saw this before I got my Nickel Plated interchangeable set. I just got them and was thinking that the tips didn't seem as sharp as I remember them and the cables seemed a little stiffer than they should be. So I compared the tips I just got to the tips of a set I got a few years ago from a sample set and the tips are indeed not as sharp as they used to be. I recently started a project and decided to use my ChiaGoo fixed circular instead of the KP set I had just gotten. I wish I knew earlier.

I'm glad I already have a good set and a half or more. I'll stick to Knitter's Pride now. I also has a nail file I LOVED, but when they switched to Chinese manufacturing it ruined it.
