These are beautiful needles at a great price! These premium bamboo needles are great to knit with for all levels of knitters. They're smooth and ultra lightweight, but have enough "grip" so that your project will not slide off the needles. The tips come to a nice point and will not snag the yarn. Set of 5 needles.

I understand a previous reviewer got a bad set. I ordered a size 10 set of double pointed needles. Mine were not rough or unfinished. They are light weight and the tips are finished the same as Takumi bamboo needles. But they are lighter than Takumi needles. While I think Crystal Palace has a finer tip for its bamboo needles I believe these are a good set for a good price if you don't want to spend a lot of money on double pointed needles.

The tips of these needles are not the same, even on each needle. Some are sharp, others blunt. I will make the best of it and knit with the side of the needle that makes it easiest depending on yarn. One tip does have a splinter, but it was polished.

      Not pointy enough, even in large size--rather a pain to use. Wood feels fairly nice and smooth.

        Comments about 5.99 Bamboo 7.5"" Double Points:

        These are great quality needles with an affordable price. Most stores in my area don't carry size 10 double point needles, so I was happy to find these online.

        The only potential problem I found with these is that the tips are rather blunt (which could make for slower, clumsier knitting). However, when considering that a bulky yarn would most likely be used on 6mm needles, they shouldn't present too much trouble.

          I use these particular needles for hats; stitches slide very easily on them. cannot think of anything negative.

            Perfect length for double point needles. Knitting doesn't slip off the end. Easy to hold.

              I needed an inexpensive set of double points to finish a hat with. These were perfect. They aren't terribly sharp because they are from bamboo, but work fine with worsted yarn. I'll be using them for similar tasks in the future. They are not fancy needles, nor do they claim to be, but were just right for the job.

                I love knitting on DPN's. These I ordered for a specific project, the Failynn Fox hat. It was a Christmas gift for my grand daughter. I could not find bigger sized needles anywhere locally. Price was right, quality good, and quick delivery.

                  I am making a very chunky wool/acrylic cable throw for my daughter for Christmas and these needles hold the yarn without snagging so that it is going so fast. Bamboo is terrific! I can't think of anything I could suggest to make them any better.

                      These needles splintered immediately, which made them unusable. I won't order this brand again. I've never had this problem with Clover or Crystal Palace DPNs.

                          I would recommend these needles with emphasis that I had to sand one first in order for the yarn to move easy on to it, and to prevent pulled places in the yarn.
