I see that some of their dice marked as 'square cornered' are displayed as 'round cornered'.

Check out the pictures.

Try googling "Gamescience." They make precision, non-rounded dice. The company was started by Lou Zocchi, who claimed his dice were more balanced and therefore more truly random than common "tumbled" round-corner dice. You can find videos where he makes this point. Honestly, in the end I doubt the difference actually matters. I simply don't think a rounded die is going to be "off" enough to truly affect the roll result to any reliable or significant degree; there are just too many other, more significant influences on the die, when rolled fairly, to produce actual skewed results. Height of drop, any force, angle and motion of hand, material dropped on to, etc., etc., will simply overwhelm any slight malformation caused by a rounded corner. No, I can't prove that. But it makes sense to me!
