The point of the nail is where the whip will transition from rigid handle to flexible thong. The original point of the nail is far too sharp and rough for the amount of flexing that will be happening at this section so it is rounded off using a bench grinder. It is then finished with a fine grain file to take off any high points that might wear on the leather during use.
