In know this is kind of a stupid question but what's the best way for me to bring a rod to a point an make a pick out of it? I have a book that tells how but its hard to under stand.

first forge it to square, then taper the square. after th taper is done, knock the corners down so it becomes an octogon, then bring it back to round.
