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.

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

I was looking for double pointed knitting needles that would have good sharp points and would be easy for me to hold and the Karbonz did that for me. I have looked at these Karbonz needles several times, and will definitely be getting more in the near future.

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

These needles are smooth and yet have a good grab for the yarn. Good point to pick up stitches.

Not good for beginners. When I first used Karbonz I tended to split the yarn. Now with more experience, don't have that problem.

Webs service is always good.

    • Socks

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

    Needed these for a sock project where my bamboo needles weren't available in a size so small. Knitting with them feels fluid and fast like knitting with metal needles but the stitches stay on well like they would on bamboo.

    They feel and look great, no issues with the transitions.

            The pros above say it all. I use them to knit socks and find these needles strong, with just the right amount of grip, and with smooth sharp tips. And they are reasonably priced.

                          I purchased these specifically for knitting socks. They are wonderful because there is enough grip in the carbon fiber shaft that my needles don't just fall out of the stitches and the tips are really pointed and slick so I don't have to fight with my knitting. Knitting two together through the back loops or even twisted stitches knit together is so much easier than using any other needles. I recommend these knitting needles to everyone. I really love that there are five of them because now I don't have any laddering between the needles when knitting socks.
