      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.

            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!

              I decided I was going to try these needles as I needed a size I didn't have. I was so glad I did! They are wonderful -- feel good in the hand, won't bend out of shape as some metal needles do. Now I hope they will make them in larger sizes.

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

                  Great double points that have just a slick enough surface to let the yarn move freely, but not so slick that yarn flies off the needles. Easy to us long length. Points are pointy and seem to pick up the stitches with ease, but don't push through your finger if you have the bad habit of pushing the needle down with your finger like I do.

                              I have used the Karbonz DP Needles for some time now, I couldn't be happier with them. They are the best. Love the points being nice and sharp, and the fact that they are smooth and durable. Very light in my poor abused knitting hands.
                              Thank You!

                                    Needles are just OK. Prefer the points on other needles and yarns don't slide well on them either.
