Use a pencil sharpener.  Electric, crank, or hand held.  It's a dandy way to 
make knitting needles.  Use a little sandpaper to round over the tips, then 
burnish them on a piece of marble or some heavy, glazed ceramic object, like 
the bottom of a mixing bowl.  A slight rubbing of beeswax worked into the 
wood will make yarn slide over them more easily; though they will smooth 
down with use, too.
