For years, I've avoided writing about the carbon composite needle.
I liked the idea, but when I tried out a set, I found the tips to feel like a rough piece of fiberglass. No splinters, but no pleasure either.
When Knitter's Pride announced their Karbonz needles, I thought, "Oh no, here we go again." But then they changed their design to feature smooth, nickel-plated brass tips. Aha! Time for a closer look.
