First off, visually they are lovely. The bright polished nickel tips and cable joins are a brilliant contrast to the shiny black needle shafts. It's worth noting that the needle size is printed both on the carbon shaft, and the steel cable join. I thought this was a nice touch.

The points are pointy, without being too stabby or sharp. I generally work somewhat tightly, and haven't so far noticed any soreness in my fingertips. In fact, my hands feel pretty great after using these.

The cable itself is very flexible, without being floppy at all. There's really no memory in it, and I haven't so far seen any sign of kinking or twisting.

Overall, I think these carbon fiber needles are a bargain. It's a shame that they are only made up to a US 4 size. It's probably to keep costs down, but the light weight would make knitting with larger needles a breeze.

Pros: Gorgeous to look at. Affordable. Great point. Comfortable lightweight material. Great cable flexibility for magic loop.
Cons: the join between the needles and cable is not as smooth as it needs to be. Constantly had to massage the stitches over the join which is a pain when using magic loop method. Not my go-to choice.

Comments about Knitter's Pride Karbonz Fixed Circular Needles 40":

This is the second pair of these needles I own. I hope to eventually replace all of my current sets to these. I love the way they feel in my hands. The tips are sharp and work well on the lace pattern I am using. Very enjoyable to work with.

Love the Karbonz needles

Comments about Knitter's Pride Karbonz Fixed Circular Needles 40":

I needed a 40" circular needle and this was the only one I could find. I am very glad I tried the Karbonz brand because of how easy it is to knit with and is the best needle set I have used. I just ordered different lengths to complete future projects. My favorite material use to be rosewood but I am changing everything to the Karbonz brand.

        I had never used these needles. I needed a 60" length for a poncho I am knitting. I needed something heavy duty--this was the right choice for me. I just love using it. I will be inclined to order more.

          • Too Short

          Best Uses

          • Toe-up 2 At A Time Socks

          Comments about Knitter's Pride Karbonz Fixed Circular Needles 40":

          I love using these for 2 at a time toe-up socks. They are warm and slightly flexible and feel good in my hands. They have a touch of grip which helps the stitches stay secure on the needles. The only drawback, and it's not a deal breaker, is they are shorter than I would like. A few more inches would go a long way!

              I really enjoy knitting with these needles. I do alot of lace work and I find the metal tips allow the yarn to move smoothly, but holds a good tension on the yarn further back on the needle so that I'm not loosing stitches.

                  I feel confident that it's not going to come apart mid project. I like the joins and have made lace without the stitches strangling at the join. The tips are sharp enough but noT stabby.
