 Not Happy With These 12 of 16

I bought 2 pair of Lantern Moon circular needles to replace some old bamboo ones I had. I thought I'd be upgrading but as I am knitting a hat on my size 6 16" circulars I am not happy at all with the joins. These are not smooth joins at all and my yarn gets hung up constantly to the point where I was afraid my yarn would snag or split. My knitting is going very slowly as I constantly have to stop to lift my stitches over the join. Fortunately I have some Addis which I just switched over to and the knitting is flying along on the Addis now. At this point I am glad I had the Addis to.

This is the first set of wooden needles I've owned and I love them! They're very smooth and make knitting effortless. The join isn't perfect, but I don't consider it problematic and I haven't had an issue with it snagging anything or significantly slowing my progress. Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase.

I was feeling pretty stupid - first an ebony Lantern Moon circular had a crack in the point - didn't get it from JBW & the supplier did replace - then last night the plastic cable just SNAPPED at the join of my size 6 32 inch ebony circular and I nearly lost 6 inches of a Fair Isle vest!  But after reading the reviews, I am beginning to wonder if the ebony needles just don't hold up to use like the rosewood ones.  So I am replacing my size 6 and size 8 32 inch ebony circulars with rosewood ones.  Will let you know how this works out.

Lovely needles that are a pleasure to knit with. Smooth needles and not too blunt, the join is great.

I may just have been unlucky. The last pair I bought snagged the yarn after knitting a few inches of a swatch.I discovered a large/deep crack in the needle. Wooden needles are fragile, but I do not expect a $ 24 pair of needles to have cracks after knitting only a few inches.

I bought two pairs of these - a size 7 and a size 5 both in 24" length. They are dreamy to knit with -- the needles feel heavenly and the speed of the  needles is wonderful along with the warmth of wood I love.

I do have a complaint about their claims of a seamless join, however. The join is not at all seamless. I find the join, in fact, problematic. I am knitting on my size 5s right now with sock yarn and (especially when there are yarnovers in the mix,) am finding myself having to take several minutes at the beginning of each row to pick stitches over the join with my fingernail.

I think they need to reexamine their claims about the join, but the needles are indeed delicious.
