The Knitter's Pride Nova Cubics Platina Double Pointed Needles 6" have a cuboid shape that gradually gives way to perfectly tapered, pointier, newly remodeled points. The ergonomic shape is comfortable to hold, lessens the need to grip tightly, and yields uniform stitch formation. The special shape also means that these needles stay put when not in use. The chrome finish makes these needles very smooth to work with - it also provides resistance to corrosion & is easy to clean! Comes with 5 needles. Note: current images are only representative, needle sizes may not look the same.

I've already gone back for more!
I was in WEBS over the summer getting all the supplies I would need to knit a pair of mittens for a friend as a gift and stumbled upon these.
They really do live up to their claims of being a bit more comfortable in the hand, especially when knitting with smaller needle sizes, like I was. I like metal needles because the stitches slide more smoothly, and even with these needles being square, they still move along nicely, with the added benefit being that when I put down the working needle, I don't have to go hunting for it to start up again because it can't roll anywhere!
The one thing that I did find was that after a bit of use, the size designation printed on each needle fades, making it harder to tell which size needle you're holding, which is by no means a dealbreaker. I do try keep them in the plastic resealable wrapping the needles come in when not in use so I never have to struggle to read the printing.
Buy a set of these amazing double points and you are definitely in for some happy knitting!
