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 true Karbonz Fixed Circular Needles 40"":

I used this product to knit a pair of cuff-down socks using Cascade Heritage Prints. The tip of one of the needles fell off entirely on the cuff of the second sock (first project ever knit with these needles). My gauge isn't especially tight on US 1 needles for socks, and I have no clue how it happened. I'm pretty disappointed because these were pretty pricey and I barely got to use them before they broke.

        My knitting has never been so even. The needles are very smooth, my stitches stay on and slides well, and has an extra point than other needles. I find wood needles lose the luster, smoothness, create a bend and the sweat will make my work bunch up and not slide. They are flimsy as the size gets smaller.

        I like this product, it's easier to use for sock knitting. A friend of mine was using one and she suggested that I get one too, thanks to her.

        Wonderful needles but not the best jounced....

        Comments about true Karbonz Fixed Circular Needles 40"":

        The 'grippiness' of the Karbonz® is between a wood/bamboo and metal needles. Love that feature! However, all of my circulars (#3 - 10) have a very slight variation between the metal joint and the Karbonz® material. Not enough to be troublesome, except with the thinner yarns for #3 & #4 but it's there.... Fortunately I knit on-gauge or slightly looser so sliding the sts over these spots isn't much of a problem.
        I thought to return them for exchange but as all of the needles have this same problem I think I'd get only more of the same. The very thin Karbonz® DPNs (# 0 - #0000) I have don't have this differential problem.

        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.

        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.
