        I love these new Karbonz needles. I bought my favorite sock size first. They are smooth and warm and are fast to knit with. The tips are metal and the shaft is carbon fiber. The size is marked on each needle in both US and metric. The steel tips glides through the knitting but the carbon fiber has just enough grip to keep it from sliding off.

        stainless tip isn't flush with the carbon material making it feel bumpy when knitting with it. Ordered it because I liked the look of the tip

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

          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.

          Service and delivery comments:

          The delivery was prompt and the product arrived in good condition.

                  I purchased these in a size 3 and they are the best. I've had so many other sets but they always break because they're so thin. Not these! They are strong and sturdy with a great tip. They don't bend or buckle and the yarn slides nicely over them - much better than the bamboo and walnut needles I've had. I will purchase these in other sizes.

                        I love these needles! I've been having an awful hard time finding tiny needles in a non-slippery material and these are perfect. Makes knitting lace (for me anyway) much more enjoyable.

                          I love these needles! I love my wood needles a bit more, but with the smaller ones I'm always terrified of snapping them straight in half! I don't MIND metal needles, but they're so cold and hard... these really were the best of both worlds, and I plan to stock up on the smaller sizes that I don't like having in wood!

                              I love these needles. I needed some pretty skinny dpns (1.5mm & 1.75mm) and these ones flex without me being worried that they will break. The pointy metal tips help ensure that I'm getting the tiny stitches and the warm flexible body of the needle doesn't cause any issues for my hands.

                              I received these as a gift and have fallen in love with them. They are warm to the touch and smooth. Stitches glide easily over the surface but have enough grip to hold the needle in place. My favorite part though are the "very" pointed tips, I get frusted with the duller tips on some dp needles. These are definitely a delight to use. I think I try to get all the sizes in the 6" dps.

                                  These are very comfortable and not too slippery. I like the dull finish since shiny finishes are hard on my eyes. I choose them primarily because of the length--most smaller needles seem to be 6 or 7 inches.
