I think it's more of a brand thing than a style. I've never seen anything labeled as blunt or pointy, nor has it been a selling point. I love my Addis, but there have been times I've had to switch to another brand because the tips were pointier. I think the Susan Bates tend to be pointier, and there may be other brands that I haven't used.
