Let me show you what I mean. I have this character's head. I'm going to right-click on it to select, hit Tab to go into Edit Mode. Now let's go ahead and just select one vertex at the tip of his nose, let's reshape his nose. Now if I start moving this, you'll see that I get this really sharp edge here.
