    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.

                  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.

                        These are great needles for sock knitting. They are smooth and strong. They have a good feel as I knit. The points are nicely sharp but not too sharp.

                          I also bought these karbonz double pointed needles for my mom. She has arthritis and still loves to make socks. These needles work best with her, and she is happy with them too. Pricey but worth it!

                                I was loving these, how they looked and how they felt in my hands as I cast on for a sock. However, only two inches into the sock cuff my husband sat on my project bag and the tip of one broke off. Not the fault of the needles, but I'm wondering about their strength now. My husband only weighs 135 pounds. (He survived unharmed.)

                                            These larger sizes are great for knitting scarves, cowls, and hats in the round.
