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.

Not the "perfect needle."

The transition from the nickle point to the shaft often catches the yarn or makes it difficult for the yarn to slide down the needle as you work. Especially when purling.

The transition from the nickle point to the shaft often catches the yarn or makes it difficult for the yarn to slide down the needle as you work. Especially when purling.

The shaft is black. If you are working with dark yarn it is almost impossible to see your stitches.

The shaft is a little has a bit to much grip.

I like the fact that they don't bend out of shape as the bamboo do. I like that they are not as slippery as metal needles. But over all I find bamboo to be a better needle. Bamboo has moderate grab and not joint to interfere with the knitting and is easy to see your stitches on.

I'm not unhappy about my purchase but I rather doubt I will purchase another set unless the design changes.

    I bought these for making lace weight mitts. Even though they're comfortable to use, they're much too heavy for delicate fibers. Not worth the extra cost.

      There are 5 needles in set, 3 f them are slick...2 I am sad to say have less than optimal join of karbon to tip and all stitches snag quite a bit, I had to enter 2 needles from other manufacturer to finish product.

      Splendid double-points!!

      • Grippy But Pointy

      Cons

        Best Uses

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

          I always dread the initial rounds of a circular shawl, but these needles took most of the stress out of the whole process, because they're grippy enough to prevent slipping and sliding (I could actually pick up my work without peril!), and the pointy tips make lacework easy, and enhance the visibility of tiny stitches even with dark-colored (in my case, pitch black) yarn. HIGHLY recommended!!

          I love these. I was breaking too many bamboo needles, but thought firmer needles would be too hard on my hands. These are just fine, and very pointy for picking up those tricky stitches.

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

            These needles have an excellent, smooth point. The needles are light. The join between the tip and the shaft is very noticable while knitting, and quite annoying. Other than the join they seem to be made wi th a consistent, high quality. Compared to other needles they are high cost for a less satisfying needle.

            These are the best needles! In small sizes my wooden DPNs always seem to break. Either dog jumps on knitting bag, or I sit on one. These hold up and are beautiful to boot. LOVE!

            Pros

            • Great For Knitting Socks
            • Nice And Firm
            • No Warping Or Bending
            • Points Are Just Right
            • Points Do Not Pierce Skin
            • Stitches Did Not Slip Off
            • Stitches Slide Smoothly

            Cons

            • Hard To See Dark Yarn

            Best Uses

            • Susan B Anderson Socks

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

            Great for sock pattern offered free by Susan B Anderson. Stitches do not slide off. Points are just right. Points do not pierce skin like my bamboo needls. Very comfortable feel. Very easy on my fingers because I don't have to use extra tension and squeezing to keep stitches from sliding off. One suggestion- it is difficult to see dark colored yarn on the dark needles- so silver or light tan might be better.
