Another Knook Hook

So I made my own knook hook that has a pointy end like a knitting needle. And found that it made purling much easier to do and over all knooking quicker. Pictured below.
But I found it to be alot of work to have to wittle the wood.  So I had a bamboo set that I ordered from ebay and did the unthinkable.....but it worked.  I put my hook into a pencil sharpener and sharpened away and got a beautiful point to my hook.  I just sanded it down a little to get rid of any roughness and you have to be careful not to over sharpen the hook off.
