      Comments about true Ebony Straight Needles:

      I love slick needles but also adore the beauty of wood on long 14" needles because I rest the ends on my arms. I tried these several times but find them sticky. I used 2000 grit sand paper and smooth out the tips and they are now my favorite. I'm going to buy some more sets before ebony becomes a thing of the past. I'm familiar with wood and these are high quality ebony.

      Comments about true Ebony Straight Needles:

      I am knitting with cotton and wanted wooden needles, and these ebony needles are just gorgeous. They are smooth and easy to use. However, they are fragile. I had my knitting on my lap at a hockey game and in a moment of excitement clapped my hands onto my lap and snapped one of the needles. I bought another pair and I'm trying to be careful this time!

                These needles are solid black wood, nice to look at, comfortable to hold, and the yarn slides along them without any snags. I want to get more sizes of these beauties.
