Needle Profile:
Inox Coated Aluminum Double-Pointed Needles

Manufacturer

Inox

Material

Coated aluminum

Notes

Coated with the same durable grey material as the Inox circulars, these needles are probably the fastest -- and most slippery -- DPNs available.

Casting on is a challenge because of this slipperiness, so these needles are best for tight stitches or knitters who are already comfortable with DPNs.

They have a well-defined taper and rounded yet distinct tip.
