    I am incredibly impressed with these needles. They combine the best of all worlds to me:

    * They have the light weight of bamboo or wood, along with the slight 'grip' along the length of the needles that prevents needles from slipping out if you need to set your work down; this has often been an issue for me with metal needles, which tend to be heavier and are slightly more smooth along the length of the needle shaft.

    * They have fine metal points. My primary issue with wood and bamboo needles, since I often work with no higher than size 3 or 4 US, is dull or dulling points. I don't have to worry about the tips wearing down after a few projects as I did with my smaller bamboo needles and replacing them repeatedly costs far more than a set of these in the long run! I'm hard on my needles, and these do not feel like I might easily break them unless I'm careful.

    * I like the black. It really helps the stitches stand out without being a distraction. (Also, it's quite beautiful in person, with a subtle grain visible in it unseen in the images.) That the sizes are printed on the needle clearly, even at the very small sizes, is quite helpful, since smaller sizes aren't always available on needle sizers, and they can start blending together visually more easily than the larger sizes.

    I mostly use bamboo DPNs, but can be pretty hard on them so I thought the Karbonz would be great. Unfortunately, several of the needles have burrs on the tips that catch and snag yarn while knitting with these. I need to try sanding them with some fine sandpaper or grinding stone, but I'm a bit disappointed that I need to 'fix' these.

    Comments about Knitter's Pride Karbonz Double Pointed Needles 6":

    The needles are great - I love the good sharp tips! The surface is not super slick, but also not grabby. I guess to compare it is not as slick as aluminum, but not as grabby as plastic.
    I am making a pair of mitts with these needles, which is an alternate project with a sweater. When my hands are hurting from working on the sweater, I work on the mitts. These needles are definitely kinder to the hands!

    Service and delivery comments:

    Service and delivery are great! Quick shipping, and everything as ordered. Store has a great selection!

              Easy to work with, stitches don't slip so easy off your needles, when holding 4 needles at the same time knitting socks.

                    I used these double pointed needles to make socks out of slippery acrylic yarn. The points are nice and sharp - hardly any splitting of the yarn. The carbon shafts, while allowing the yarn to move freely when knitting, also held on to the yarn so the stitches did not slip off one needle while working on another. Not sure how they can be slick yet tacky at the same time, but they are! I plan on buying a set of these in different sizes I liked them so much.

                                I ordered needle size 1 & 2.The bamboo needles I have used for sock knitting have ended up being bent ( no longer straight) These needles so far
                                have kept their shape.

                                I made lace socks with K3tog SSSK and these needles were sturdier than bamboos, light with a warm feel in my hand. They will not be bent out of shape or break with stitches on them. Very glad I tried them.

                                      Have a set of interchangeable and double points, overall love the weight and feel of the needles and love knitting on them. Double points great for sock knitting. Only issue so far is a some of the double point needles have burrs on end, not sure how or if I can fix on my own. Will contact LYS where I purchased and see if can fix problem. Otherwise I love them!
