Love these needles! They have smooth joins, pointy enough tips and I don't have to worry about breaking them when they accidentally fall on the sofa cushion and I sit down!! The carbon fiber warms nicely like wood but still has the smoothness of a nickel plated needle. Worth the price!
I have used so many different types of sock needles over the years and these are by far the best ever.They are strong, flexible , and feel good in your hands and the points are sharp! What more could you ask for?
