I am making a logo with Illustrator.

I made an outline with the default stroke - no fill black stroke. But, the corners have a square end cap.

How do I make the end caps sharp so they are a point?

Adobe Illustrator Stroke Palette

Go to Window -> Stroke
Modify the Cap, Corners, Limit, etc (ie, try a higher or lower number in Limit)
Additionally, make sure your shape is "closed" by completing the path just in case.

EDIT: Up your Limit to 30 or so.
Limit of 0:
