GG, I have both the metal and wood from KP, but I think they are both really sharp. I had a hard time with that when I first got them, but it doesn't bother me anymore. I use fixed circs for socks as well.
Jan, a light bulb came on for me and I figured out what's meant by taper in reference to needle tips. I think that the tapering end of the wood needles is what makes me prefer them because you're right (no surprise!) about the points on both being sharp and that made me think about it. Thanks. I forgive you for making me think and getting a headache.
