I have recently started knitting socks and mitts using two cirular needles rather than four or five DPNs, and the Karbonz have made this a WONDERFUL knitting experience. The needle shafts are light and warm to the touch. They have the very slightest (almost unnoticeable, really) flex to them which makes them much more comfortable than metal needles. And for someone like me--who holds her needles with a death-grip--I don't have to worry about snapping small-gauge US 0s or 1s as I would with wooden ones.

The join between the needle and cable is very smooth compared to other circs, but is not yet perfect. (When someone gets that to be perfectly seamless, they will make countless knitters very happy.) As far as the cable itself, I will have to knit something heavier, such as a shawl or cowl, before I can give it a complete thumbs-up. But for small projects, it is okay. It could be a little stiffer so that it doesn't bend when those oncoming stitches don't slide right over onto the join.

Overall, though, I am very pleased with these needles and have expanded my collection into the larger sizes.

I wanted to like these needles because they did make knitting progress easily and steadily. But they were so heavy my wrists ached after just a few rounds and they clicked loudly like the aluminum needles of my childhood. Finally, I got a very metallic taste in my mouth while using these needles. Needless to say they were a disappointment

      The slight stickiness of the needles make them excellent for small fiddly knitting. There's this delightful click and tug with each stitch is really pleasant.

        I discarded all my bamboo and metal needles and will use only Karbonz from now on for every knit project. I only regret that no Karbonz crochet hooks exist.

            I bought the #1 circulars to use them for sock-knitting and became an instant convert. These needles have just the right balance of slippery points and "grabby" carbon and best of all, they feel lighter in my hands than just about any other needle I have tried. They are my go-to needles for socks now, and I am starting to acquire them in larger sizes for use in knitting garments.

                Better at keeping yarn intact without splitting. Needles ensure smooth movement of yarn.

                    After trying a few other size 1 and smaller circular needle brands in bamboo and/or wood, I am happy I spent the extra $$$. No more bent needles! The tips aren't quite as sharp but all in all, I am pleased with my purchase! purchase
