I bought these to use for socks and gloves. They are marvelous needles. As advertised, they are strong, smooth and warm to the touch. The only negative about these is the little gap between the shaft and the needle tip. It does catch the yarn as it slides, but not enough to stop me from using the needles. The packaging was cumbersome as they came strapped to a piece of cardboard that was about twice the size of the needles. I ended up cutting the cardboard down to size to store the needles on the board.

Bought three different forms of these needles (different circular lengths and straight double pointed). While generally they work ok, the yarn occasionally binds slightly at the transition seam between the carbon fiber shaft and the metal point of the needle. While I like the sharp points of these needles, I think I will stick to using needles formed out of a single material.

    Comments about Knitter's Pride Karbonz Double Pointed Needles 8":

    I wanted to switch from bamboo as I either keep breaking them or the cat does! Was leery of these, as thought stitches would fall off ends when working in the round, but THEY DID NOT. Needles have a nice grip, nice points, they look very professional and stylish as well.

              It was my first time knitting a hat in the circular and the pattern called for DPNs for the crown of hat. My hat was finished in a couple of hours using the Karbonz DPNs and it was fast and smooth.
