The only DPN's I use 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I really love these needles, and that's saying something since DPN's usually make my hands ache. I'd begun to do 2 circ's on all projects requiring DPN's, but, now, I'll happily use these. I also find them plenty smooth, with the nickel plated tips. Lovely to work with!

Not Too Slippery 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I recently purchased these needles and so far I'm very happy with them. I got them because I was travelling to Australia and wanted to make sure I had no problems with the agriculture inspection upon entry into the country. I didn't really know if I would have problems but I didn't want to find out the hard way. I had a girlfriend who once had her wooden chopsticks seized I could take a set of metal needles with me but I've tried them before and found them to be too slippery. A needle that was at rest would fall out of a row of stitches while I was working off another needle. These Karbonz needles were the perfect happy medium! Slippery enough to allow easy transfer of stitches but not so slippery that the needle would fall out of my work! I really like how they feel in my hands too. I liked them so much in fact that I splurged on a needle set. I've read other reviews stating disappointment with the metal tips coming loose. I haven't experienced this but I have had experience with both Knitter's Pride AND Jimmy Bean's customer service. BOTH are excellent! I have no doubt that if I do experience this separation of the needle tip I'll have zero problems having the needle replaced.

Very nice needles 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I've just started with these and i do like them. I love the very pointed ends and the carbon center is very nice at moving the stitches along.

Sturdy 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I have a few of the Karbonz doubles. Very sturdy and nice. So far, I haven't had any issues with them like I did with the smaller sized birch.

I love these needles 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
Like Model Ts, they only come in black, I like the weight of the needle. They almost feel like plastic, but happily they are not. They do not get warm like plastic, but the stitches do not slip like the metal, yet move better than alot of bambo, or wood needles I have had in the past.
