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.

Bought three different forms of these needles (different circular lengths and straight double pointed). While generally they work ok, the yarn occasionally binds slightly at the transition seam between the carbon fiber shaft and the metal point of the needle. While I like the sharp points of these needles, I think I will stick to using needles formed out of a single material.

Comments about true Karbonz Double Pointed Needles 8"":

I really like these needles. I have all kinds of double point needles. The square ones are nice. But these are the best. Not too pointy, but pointy enough. So light in your hands. The color is great with silver tips and black body. No cons at all. I recommend them highly.

    Pros

    • Points are sort of sharp

    Cons

    • Wish i had more of them

    Best Uses

      Comments about true Karbonz Double Pointed Needles 8"":

      They are comfortable for my hands, the tip picks up the next stitches without problems.
      These are my favorite. With tapestry knitting I use 2 or 3 yarns of worsted so it gets thick. These needles handle it.

        I wanted to switch from bamboo as I either keep breaking them or the cat does! Was leery of these, as thought stitches would fall off ends when working in the round, but THEY DID NOT. Needles have a nice grip, nice points, they look very professional and stylish as well.
