I pre-ordered these needles some time back and just recently received a pair of size 4, 32" circulars. These are amazing needles. They are comfortable to use, not too slick but the yarn moves across the needles quite easily. The needles look a lot more expensive than they are, with very pretty nickle plated tips, very clear size labeling on the needle and on the metal. I had worked in the aerospace industry and was familar with carbon fiber, but couldn't imagine this was really going to be a good idea. I had to try them anyhow, and really, I am glad I did. I love these so much I ordered another size (2s) and already have them in hand. I'm hoping for an interchangeable set. I will definitely want to purchase more of these.

These are very handsome looking needles. The tips are perfect. I have this habit of pushing the tip of the needle with my finger when I'm sliding more stitches over to the edge to be knit and despite these tips being pretty sharp, they don't hurt my finger when I do that.

I'm knitting toe up magic loops socks on these.. and I didn't notice any join snagging problems until my second sock. Now that I've worked on them a bit and broken them in so to speak, the yarn is catching often at the joins.

The cord is stiffer than I imagined. In the end, I'll probably try another needle for my next pair of socks.

        Troubles w/Seller Quality

        Comments about Knitter's Pride Karbonz Fixed Circular Needles 32":

        I bought these for knitting socks toe up magic loop style. The needles are attractive looking and I like the metal tips. I hold issue with the quality of the pair I received- that was disappointing considering how much they cost.

            Webs service was great as usual! Ordered yarn at same time, that was perfect. Have been using Knitters Pride DPs and live them! The Karbonz needles are not something I would ever consider again or recommend ever!!

              I especially like these needles for knitting shawls. I use a lot of alpaca which can stick to bamboo needles, but it slides nicely on these.

                I like these a lot because they have the right amount of hold on the yarn. Not too slippery so the work doesn't come off but not a sticky feeling either.

                Comments about Knitter's Pride Karbonz Fixed Circular Needles 32":

                I bought these in very small diameters specifically for knitting socks by magic loop. They are great for this and it was a pleasure to knit with them. The cables were nice and flexible and the needles had a lovely wood feel to them but with the strength of a metal. The strength of the needles is nice since the bamboo needles I tried in 2.00mm and 2.25mm are too flexible and fragile for my liking. It would be nicer if these were a bit cheaper, but I only needed these sizes so for a few sets, it's not a big deal. I have interchangeables for everything else.

                    I bought these in a US 2 to knit a shawl using a very fine 2-ply silk/merino blend. They work very well. They are comfortable with enough length in the needle part to grip it easily. That has been a problem for me with another high-end brand of circs in the lower numbers with such short little needles that I could barely grasp my knitting! These are nicely proportioned for me - I have rather large hands. These also have a warm feel despite not being wood which is what I usually prefer to buy. The seam between the metal tip and the carbon fiber is quite smooth - certainly it has not been a problem for me in the slide of my knitting. Occasionally I see a stitch briefly hesitate at the join but nothing that has snagged or interrupted my knitting to date. And, the price is right! Buy them, I think you'll like them.

                        These were the first pair of Karnonz that I have used. There were no problems with the joins and the yarn moves smoothly over the needles. I've always used Addi needles, but thought I would try something new. I really enjoy knitting with the Karbonz.

                          These needles are slippery enough for the stitches to slide easily, but they don't fall off. They are very light, and they feel good in my hands. I've been using both the circs and the straights with a variety of yarns, and I like them even better than the nickel-plated needles that were my former favorites.
