Default Re: Help!!!

Dubbing the point of the graver can help. It consists of either holding the graver almost vertical on a fine stone and very lightly flattening the point, or swiping the heel very lightly across a stone while rotating left and right to slightly round the sharp bottom of the heel...or doing both for really hard metal.

Also make sure the bolster (knife) is solidly mounted so there is no vibration which will destroy points rapidly.
