How to use "Pointedness" in context?
Within English, there is a distinction between the two words "point" and "tip". A tip is the lowermost leaf of a pointy object such as a spear, while a point is the sharp end of a pointed object. Generally speaking, points are more pointed than tips.
There are exceptions to this rule, though. For example, the end of a needle is typically more pointed than the blunt end. Additionally, the end of a pencil is typically more pointed than the lead.
Perhaps the most notable example of this rule is the tip of a knife.
